Girls across Worcestershire will be provided with increased opportunities to play football after a new nationwide participation programme was announced.
The programme will see 200 SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Centres opening throughout England, each run in conjunction with the local County FA and their key partners. The move will provide girls aged from 5 to 11 with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun, engaging and safe environment.
The project is an integral part of The FA’s objective to double girls’ football participation by 2020 and has been established in a joint partnership between The FA and SSE, supporters of girls’ football participation and sponsor of the SSE Women’s FA Cup.
There are currently four SSE Wildcats Girls' Football Clubs in Worcestershire:
- South Bromsgrove High School - Mondays 5pm-6pm
- De Montfort School (Evesham) - Thursdays 6pm-7pm
- Wyre Forest Leisure Centre- Saturdays 9:30am-10:30am
- University of Worcester - Sundays 10am-11am
For more details about the centres please contact Laura McGinn, Football Development Officer, firstname.lastname@example.org or 01905 827137 ext. 210.
