Girls across Woking will be provided with increased opportunities to play football after a new nationwide participation programme was announced.
The programme will see 200 SSE Wildcats Girlsâ€™ Football Clubs opening throughout England this spring, each run in conjunction with the local County FA and their key partners. The move will provide girls aged from 5 to 7 with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun, engaging and safe environment over a minimum 16 week period.
The project is an integral part of The FAâ€™s objective to double girlsâ€™ football participation by 2020 and has been established in a joint partnership between The FA and SSE, supporters of girlsâ€™ football participation and sponsor of the SSE Womenâ€™s FA Cup.
The Woking Wildcats Girls FC sessions
will take place as follows:
Start Date: Saturday 22nd April
Venue: Brookwood Farm, Bagshot Road, Knaphill, Woking, GU21 2RN
Cost: Â£3 per session
Parents and carers who attend with the girls will also have the optional opportunity to take part in football-related fitness sessions at the same time as the girls.
Chris Sexton, Senior Development Coach at Woking FC, commented: â€œThis is a fantastic opportunity for younger females to participate in football. We already have a good number of older girls participating in local football clubs and district sides. This fantastic initiative gives 5-7 year olds an opportunity to begin their footballing career much earlier than most currently do.â€�
Surrey County FA CEO, said: â€œThis is a great opportunity for more girls who havenâ€™t played before to access specific fun training sessions that will ignite their passion for football, we hope that many of the girls who attend will then make the transition into local charter standard clubs.â€�
