The FA Female Strategy
The FA's four-year strategy, titled Inspiring Positive Change, pledges to create a sustainable future for women’s and girls’ football in England.
The strategy outlines eight transformational objectives to be achieved by 2024.
- Early Participation
- Development Participation
- Club Player Pathway
- Elite Domestic Leagues & Competitions
- Football For All
The FA Have Developed An Initiative Designed To Inspire Girls Aged Between 5-11 To Be Involved In Football.
Wildcats now has over 1,250 centres nationwide, getting over 20,000 girls’ playing football. The sessions take place on a weekly basis – either on evenings or at weekends – subject to each local organiser. They provide a safe environment where girls who don’t currently play the game can have fun engaging with sport, make new friends, develop fundamental skills, try a variety of sessions and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport.
The aim for this new and exciting programme is to provide girls between the ages of 12-14 a fun, relevant and engaging recreational offer that allows them to develop themselves as much as their football skills in a safe, inclusive environment.
The programme has been specifically designed to give autonomy, choice and voice to the girls who are involved in the sessions. By adopting this approach, young people will have the freedom to develop their social identity, become a valued member of a team and build their self-confidence through engaging in fun and flexible football activity.
