The FA and SSE have developed an initiative designed to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to be involved in football
SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Centres provide girls with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun and engaging environment. In 2018, over 800 centres took part across the country, getting over 20,000 girls playing football.
The sessions take place on a weekly basis, either after school or at weekends, subject to each local organiser. They provide a safe environment where girls who don’t currently play the game can have fun engaging with sport, make new friends, develop fundamental skills, try a variety of sessions and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport.
Want to get involved?
We are now looking for even more organisations to take part and deliver SSE Wildcats Centres and help support our mission to double girls’ participation by 2020.
