The Football Association and SSE teamed up last year with a new initiative - SSE Wildcats - which is designed to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to get involved in football.
We are very pleased to announce the arrival of seven SSE Wildcats Clubs to Cumberland in 2018.
SSE 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.
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.

Sessions kick off after the Easter Holidays (April 2018) and are delivered by FA qualified coaches. Sessions are open to all girls aged 5-11, weather you have played before or you’re new completely to football. Contact your local centre for their official start date.
Jess Nelson, Football Development Officer said: “We are over the moon to be working with Carlisle United Community Sports Trust and Reds in the Community on this fantastic project.
“As part of our work around doubling girls participation by 2020, the SSE Wildcat concept hopes to support this by offering a platform for female specific mini soccer to take place.
“Sessions are open to all girls aged between 5 years old and 11, to have fun, develop fundamental skills and try a variety of sessions and lay the foundations for a lifelong love of sport.
“Please contact your local centre lead for more information and to find out how you can attend.”
