Chichester City Girls Football club has been selected to be an official FA Wildcats mini soccer centre to help improve participation in football for girls. The FA announced 200 of these centres across the country as part of this new initiative with the aim of providing opportunities for girls aged 5-11 to start playing football.
Chichester City Girls Football Club has been providing an outstanding service for girl’s football for the past five years so it was an easy decision for the football association to target them as a club to run one of the new mini soccer centres. Each centre will provide weekly sessions run by FA qualified coaches with all of the relevant safeguarding checks. The Chichester Centre is unique as all the coaches are females from within the Chichester City Ladies system. Head coach and Ladies first team player Emma Alexandre stated ‘the Wildcat centres are a great opportunity for young girls to get involved in football in a relaxed and encouraging environment. The fact that all of my coaches are female footballers is a bonus as they become fantastic role models for the youngsters’. Players are welcome to come along on a weekly basis to enjoy these sessions with the long term aim of them joining one of the sides at the club and play matches in the local league system.
The Wildcats centre runs every Saturday morning at Chichester College 10-1130am, the first session is free and each subsequent session has a £3 fee. For more details please contact Matt Wright on firstname.lastname@example.org
