In recognition of the CONCACAF Women's Football Day, footballers of all ages are invited to participate in an open screening session for the inaugural Women's Premier League (WPL) on Saturday 23 May 2015 from 8am at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium, Marabella.

The event is hosted by the Women's Premier League T&T, in cooperation with the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA).

Coaches will be on hand to put players through the paces and those making the cut will be invited to participate in the WPL Draft with the hope of being selected to play for one of the six WPL franchise teams.

Registration begins at 8am and the screening session is from 9am to 12noon. All players are encouraged to bring any required medication but there will be health care personnel on duty at the venue.

The Women's Football Day initiative was announced by CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb at the confederation's 'Let's Develop Women's Football' seminar held last year in Philadelphia. It aims to unite all 41 Member Associations to celebrate women's football, become a beacon of inspiration for female participation in football and encourage continued investment in the sport.

The TTFA will also host a grassroots festival at the Manny Ramjohn Stadium, immediately following the screening, at 1pm. The festival culminates in an international U-17 girls friendly between Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela, which is free of charge to the public.
