The Oman Football Association (OFA) had a meeting with a committee from the Ministry of Education to start a grassroots level programme for girls in the country. 

The meeting was held at the headquarters of the OFA at the Seeb Sports Stadium on Monday.

The committee representing the education ministry included Aisha al Jabri, a sports activities specialist, Aliya Al Zeedi, who is with the directorate for curriculum development, and Munira al Ghassani, who is part of the private schools department.

The OFA was represented by Khalid al Lahori, the manager for development and education in the technical division of the association, and Basma Mohammed, the events officer with the commercial and communications department.

The meeting focused on plans for a festival for school kids, coaching courses for physical education teachers and other initiatives and events aimed at the development of football for school girls in Oman.

The OFA's board of directors has been looking to get started with outdoor activities for girls since last year, and this initiative is part of the OFA's technical strategy, which focuses on Omani girls in the age-group of six to 12 years.

The OFA also met with the head of sports department at GUtech to conduct a beginner's football course for girls and a futsal (five-a-side football) coaching course, which will start in February.
