The Football Association and SSE have teamed up to create SSE Wildcats, designed to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to be involved in the sport.
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 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.
This season we saw eight SSE Wildcats Centres set up across the county, with over 50 new players aged 5-11 getting involved. After a summer break, these centres are back up and running this month, ready for their second year of delivery.
Whether it’s a grassroots club, school, youth club or coaching organisation looking to branch out into girls’ football – SSE Wildcats is perfect for you.
Jess Nelson, Football Development Officer, said: “We were pleased with how our first year of delivery went. Engaging over 50 new players is a great start and we look to further that this season with the establishment of new centres.
“Wildcats is a perfect platform for anyone looking to develop girls’ football in their club or school setting. Offering you £900, kit, equipment and marketing tools in year one is a great starting point and something our current centres have made great use of to develop their programme.
“We look forward to welcoming new applications from 1 November.”
The application window is now OPEN for new SSE Wildcats Centres.
If you wish to discuss your project or find out more about the programme, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 01900 511800 or email Jessica.Nelson@CumberlandFA.com
