CATSHILL Girls FC are to take part in the FA’s SSE Wildcats programme.
The team, which plays in the Mercian League, see the scheme as an opportunity to get more girls into football and give them a chance to progress.
SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Centres from the FA will provide girls aged between five and 11 with regular opportunities to play football.
The project offers organised sessions in a fun and engaging environment created exclusively for girls.
More than 200 clubs were established throughout England last year and a further 800 are set to launch this year.
SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football sessions take place on a weekly basis at Catshill Middle School on a Wednesday evening from 6pm to 7pm each week from April 11.
SSE and The FA hope the scheme will inspire participants to engage with football, meet new friends, develop fundamental skills, learn new things and create the foundation for a lifelong love of football.
Each SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Centre will be run in conjunction with county FAs and utilise qualified coaches and local facilities.
The programme is in line with the FA’s Gameplan for Growth with the target of doubling girls’ participation in the sport by 2020.
The strategy for women’s and girls’ football at grassroots level includes initiatives alongside SSE Wildcats, such as FA Girls’ Football Week.
