Lil-Lets UK supports Kent FA to empower her game

Keeping girls active as they enter puberty.

As puberty marks a significant milestone in a girl’s life, it can also pose challenges, particularly in football and physical activity. Recognising this, Kent FA has teamed up with Lil-Lets UK to support young female footballers in Kent, through the provision of free sanitary packs for their coaches' kit bags.

Over the last two weeks, Kent FA has reached out to the coaches of under-11 girls and mixed teams to offer free, sanitary packs that can be kept discreetly in the coaches' kit bags. Thus, ensuring the coaches have provisions during training or matches should they need it, and the players are not caught short. By fostering this supportive environment both on and off the field, together with Lil-Lets, coaches, and players, we equip girls with the resources they need to navigate puberty confidently. 

Rebecca Moore, Football Development Officer (Women & Girls) talks about this initiative saying, “We have seen tremendous growth in the last 2 years of the number of girls playing football in the county, particularly in clubs and spaces which were previously only accommodating boys. It is now our responsibility to support clubs and coaches to ensure they are equipped to support girls to thrive both on and off the pitch- and making sure teams have access to period products for their players is a great place to start!”

So far, 71 coaches have expressed their interest in these free sample kits. We will start to distribute these kits week commencing 4th March 2024. 

Great news - we have purchased extra packs to give away to our football community!

The provision of these free samples ensures access to essential products but also helps to dispel myths and stigma. This innovative approach goes beyond sanitary products; it aims to empower young footballers to embrace their bodies and continue to pursue their football dreams without hindrance and embarrassment.
