HAVE FUN, MAKE FRIENDS, PLAY FOOTBALL
The Football Association launched a new initiative in 2017, Wildcats, designed to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to be involved in the sport.
Wildcats Girls’ Football Clubs provide girls with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun and engaging environment created exclusively for girls. 200 clubs have been established across England throughout the spring and summer.
The sessions take place on a weekly basis, either after school or at weekends, subject to the local organiser. They will provide a safe environment where girls with no football experience can; have fun engaging with sport, develop fundamental skills, try a variety of sessions, learn new things and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport.
Each Wildcats club will be run in conjunction with local County FAs and utilising qualified coaches and local facilities to offer girls a location nearby where they can get involved.
Wildcats has been established with support from UEFA, FIFA and The Youth Sport Trust.
