Shine Wildcats Girls' Football Squad (Age 8-11)

For Girls who want to play Football!

The FA and SSE have launched an initiative designed to inspire girls aged between 5 - 11 to be involved in football.  SSE Wildcats Girls Football Centres provide girls with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun and engaging environment.  Due to success of our Shine Wildcats based in Henleaze, we are delighted to continue the programme to develop our squads.

Designed to encourage girls who have never tried football but would love to play to come along in a fun, safe, indoor environment at the Shine Community Sports Hall with other like minded girls and FA qualified female football coaches.

For our existing squad members, we are delighted to be able to reduce the price to £3.00 per session due to financial support from the FA.  The price will move back to payment per block after October Half Term.  If you are new to our squads, please contact us for a free trial.
