Apply to be an official SSE Wildcats Girls Football Centre

Following the successful pilot of SSE Wildcats Centres across the country during the 2016/17 season, the opportunity to apply to be part of the programme for the 2017/18 season will open on Friday 1st December – providing even more groups with a chance to grow girls' football in their local area.

Key elements of the SSE Wildcats programme are as follows:

SSE Wildcats Centres are weekly girls-only sessions for girls aged 5-11 years. The sessions are focused around fun, fitness and making friends. Sessions will commence from the week beginning Monday 9 April. A minimum of 16 weekly sessions are expected to be delivered; however as high demand to be part of these sessions is anticipated, we encourage all applicants to plan with an intention of extending these sessions as a continual offering of girls' football.

Funding and equipment is provided; however applicants who can demonstrate some matching or 'in-kind' funding will be prioritised to ensure the investment goes into sustainable football opportunities.

The pilot phase saw grassroots clubs, educational institutes and professional club community trusts involved in the delivery of SSE Wildcats Centres. We welcome applications from groups in all of these categories in addition to those outside these groups – to ensure Wildcats Centres meet all community needs and provide greater opportunities for girls to play football.

Full details of the application process are available by downloading this document.

For more information, please contact Leanne Woodhead by emailing leanne.woodhead@nottinghamshirefa.com or calling 01159837406.

The application window opens on Friday 1st December and closes on Monday 8th January.
