The FA have developed an initiative designed to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to be involved in football and you could be part of it
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 2019 there were over 1250 centres across the country, getting over 20,000 girls playing football.
Each Wildcats Girls’ Football Centre is run in conjunction with the local County FA, utilising qualified coaches and local facilities to offer girls a location nearby where they can get involved. 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 Wildcats Centres and support our mission to double girls’ participation by 2020.
