Wildcats & Grassroots Clubs

Our Wildcats programme offers a non-competitive introduction to football for girls aged 5-11. The sessions are run in primary schools and at partner grassroots clubs to provide a positive first experience in football through a safe, fun environment.  Leeds United Foundation coaches deliver a one hour session each week where the girls learn new football based skills such as coordination, agility, and teamwork. The Wildcats sessions are the base of our female football pathway, with opportunities to progress further for any girls who would like extra training and to take the next step in their football journey.

Impact / Outcome:

The Wildcat’s programme enables girls to discover a talent they possibly didn’t know they had as well as being active and having fun playing sport. For many girls this is the start of their football playing journey. The aim of the programme is to develop fundamental skills, make friends and offer a safe and inclusive environment for girls to play football. The Wildcats programme supports girls to find local grassroots teams to join and progress into a competitive environment to further develop their skills. Players can also access our female pathway with opportunity to progress upwards towards the Academy.
