have fun. make friends. play football.
The application process to become a Wildcats centre opens today (19th November) and we are on the lookout for clubs, organisations and schools who want to be part of the program launching April 2020.
Last season we helped support 45 centres across the Berks & Bucks region and we are excited to grow this programme and provide further opportunities for girls to play football for the first time.
Each new centre will receive £900 funding towards making their sessions sustainable, as well as start-up equipment, promotional materials and FA mentor support & training. The program comes with it’s own syllabus so coaches and clubs can ensure they create the right environment for the ‘beginner girl’.
Ellen Hopkins, BBFA Women's & Girls' Football Development Officer, is keen to build on last season’s success: “Last season was the biggest the programme has been in the region and we are excited to expand this and to help support the continuation of the existing centres in the area.’
An Application Guidance Document for becoming a new centre is now available online. Please click here to view the guidance and use this to help with your application.
