Godet chairs newly created committee

The Cayman Islands Football Association has appointed a seven-member committee to work on the development of women’s football in the Cayman Islands.

The Women’s Committee will analyze and develop strategies. “CIFA is determined to create a positive environment for women’s football in this country,” said President Jeffrey Webb. “The women’s committee will explore all avenues to develop our players on the pitch and in the classroom.”

The committee is chaired by Martha Godet, director of women’s football. The other committee members are Jessica Ebanks, Ondina Hernandez, Donna Wilson, Gisela Gamba, Sharon Roulstone and Karina Tibbetts.

“We are committed to the continuation of developing our young girls and women in this beautiful sport of football,” said Godet. “The committee’s objective is to review the existing structure of the women’s game, resolve the challenges and create recommendations for the growth of the sport.”

The committee’s establishment comes after Cayman’s successful hosting of two CONCACAF women’s age group championships.

In January, the Under-20 Women’s national team competed in the CONCACAF Championship. In August, the Girls U-15 team advanced to the quarterfinals of the inaugural U-15 Championship.
