Frome Town Youth FC are delighted to announce they’ve been selected to work in partnership with Somerset FA to deliver a SSE Wildcats Football Centre in Frome.
The FA and SSE have launched an initiative designed to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to be involved in football.
SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Centres provide girls with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun and engaging environment. 200 centres were established across England in 2017 and a further 800 are in place for 2018.
The sessions take place on a weekly basis, either after school or at weekends, subject to each local organiser. They provide a safe environment for girls to have fun engaging with football, make new friends, develop fundamental skills, try a variety of sessions and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport.
Each SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Centre is run in conjunction with local County FAs utilising qualified coaches and local facilities to offer girls a location nearby where they can get involved.
SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football 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.
Club Chairman, Chris Wilkinson says he is looking forward to working with Somerset FA to introduce even more girls to football from Frome and the surrounding areas. Club Secretary, Sarah Davis, is over the moon with the news. “Girls have been having fun and making friends whilst playing football with our club since 2011. We hope our experience delivering girls’ football for the past 7 years combined with Somerset FA’s support and funding will encourage even more girls to give football a go.”
The official launch and free drop in training session will take place on Sunday 8th April between 10:30 & 12:30pm on the astroturf at Frome Leisure Centre.
