OXFORDSHIRE FA UEFA WOMEN'S EURO 2022 LEGACY BOOKLET

UEFA Women's EURO 2022 Legacy

As part of the legacy programme for the record-breaking UEFA Women's EURO 2022, we outlined our plans to ensure that women and girls have easy access to football across Oxfordshire.

There is something for everyone - whether you're 5 or 75, an experienced player or looking to get involved for the first time.

We have made great progress in developing female football in recent years, and we want to use the tournament to encourage more women and girls to get involved in the beautiful game.

Read the Legacy Booklet to find out more about how we're going to use UEFA Women's EURO 2022 as a springboard to further develop female football in Oxfordshire.

WILDCATS

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.

FOR GIRLS AGED 12-14

Squad Girls

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.
