Get involved with Wildcats Girls’ Football Centres

Have fun, make friends and play football.

The Football Association have launched a new initiative designed to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to be involved in the sport.

Wildcats Girls’ Football Centres provide girls with regular opportunities to play football and to take part in organised sessions in a fun and engaging environment created exclusively for girls. If you are looking to get involved, there are 16 newly created centres in Derbyshire, all spread across the county.

You can find your nearest centre by using the map on this page.

The sessions take place on a weekly basis, either after school or at weekends, subject to the local organiser. They will provide a safe environment where girls with no football experience can; have fun engaging with sport, develop fundamental skills, try a variety of sessions, learn new things and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport.

Each Derbyshire Wildcats Centre is delivered in conjunction with Derbyshire County FA and all utilise qualified coaches who possess an in date CRC.

Wildcats has been established in partnership with SSE, supporters of girls’ football participation and sponsor of the Women’s FA Cup, with support from UEFA, FIFA and The Youth Sport Trust.
