GIRLS UNITED FA MEXICO
In Mexico, our clubs provide training sessions for local girls between the ages of 5 and 18. Sessions run Monday to Friday in the afternoons, and games and tournaments are scheduled throughout the year, including our 'Liga Chicas Unidas' tournament matches.
Training sessions are designed to develop players technically, tactically, socially and mentally. Our aim is to empower girls through football, nurturing their self-confidence and leadership skills just as much as improving their sporting abilities.
CHicas Unidas BACALAR
Bacalar was a Mayan civilization in Pre-Columbian times. It was the first city in the region which the Spanish Conquistadores succeeded in taking and holding in 1543. In 1545, Gaspar Pacheco established a Spanish town here with the name Salamanca de Bacalar.
In the 17 th century the Fortress de San Felipe Bacalar was built in order to protect the city from frequent pirate attacks. In 2006, Bacalar was named a "Pueblo Mágico" for its historic and natural beauty. It is home to the Bacalar Lagoon, a lake of magical Caribbean blues.

Maya Balam and Reforma are rural communities within the municipality of Bacalar. The communities are inhabited by a combination of indigenous Mexicans and Guatemalans. The main economic activity is agriculture.
Here we run training sessions 2-3 days a week in the communities. These communities are in an extremely beautiful, but rural parts of the region, and provide invaluable opportunities for the girls, and a unique coaching experience for our coaches.
