SSE Wildcats Girls' Football

SSE Wildcats

Get involved with SSE Wildcats Girls' Football Clubs

Have fun, make friends, play football.

The Football Association and SSE have teamed up to launch a new initiative in 2017, SSE Wildcats, designed to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to be involved in the sport.

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. 200 clubs have been established across England throughout the spring and summer.

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.

Alongside the football for girls activities, there will also be opportunities for the attending parents, carers and siblings to engage with sport in ‘Family Sessions’, e.g. Soccercise/Walking football at the same time.

Each SSE Wildcats club will be run in conjunction with local County FAs and utilising qualified coaches and local facilities to offer girls a location nearby where they can get involved.

SSE Wildcats has been established in partnership with SSE, supporters of girls’ football participation and sponsor of the SSE Women’s FA Cup, with support from UEFA, FIFA and The Youth Sport Trust.

Kent FA youth council Campaign highlights
The Kent FA Youth Council are attempting to get more people involved in grassroots football, and have produced a series of videos to showing the different pathways available. The Youth Council decided to run this campaign in response to falling participation figures in the sport and a worrying drop-off in player numbers in the 16-19 year old age group. 
Supported by members of Kent FA staff, the Youth Council collaborated with Fixers UK, a charity which supports young people across the UK to take action and change things for the better, orchestrate a campaign tackling foul and abusive language in the game.
The Kent FA Youth Council aim to sign up 2015 young people to the Football Futures programme by this time next year. The Kent FA Football Futures programme is intended to support young people interested in volunteering in football by rewarding them for their volunteering and providing opportunities for them to receive training, gain experience and meet other young volunteers in the game. 
Over a very special two week campaign the Kent FA Youth Council shinned the spotlight with daily features on some of Kent’s brilliant volunteers while sharing good practice to support clubs and leagues to recruit and recognise its workforce. Over the course of the two weeks the Kent FA Youth Council ambassadors and staff also carried out ten surprise visits and presentations to some of our very special volunteers.
