Would you like to run an SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Centre? Essex’s application window is now open to provide regular inspirational opportunities for girls aged 5-11 to have fun, make friends and play in an engaging environment.
200 centres were established in 2017 and a further 800 will be in place for 2018. The sessions take place on a weekly basis, either after school or at weekends, subject to each local organiser. The centres have been established in partnership with SSE, supporters of girls’ football participation and sponsors of many competitions and initiatives.
Wildcats Centres provide a safe environment where girls who don’t currently play the game can have fun engaging with sport, develop fundamental skills and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport. Each centre is run in conjunction with local County FAs, utilising qualified coaches and local facilities to offer girls a local location where they can get involved.
