“We added a Ladies side this season and the natural progression is to add girls teams to the club and the SSE Wildcats initiative is a great way to get this started”
Lancing FC are delighted to announce they have applied to work in partnership with Sussex FA to deliver a SSE Wildcats Football Centre in Lancing starting in April.
The initiative, supported by The FA and SSE, is looking to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to become 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. 200 centres were established across England in 2017 and a further 800 are in place for 2018.
The sessions will take place on a weekly basis and provide a safe environment for girls to develop fundamental skills, try a variety of sessions and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport.
Our SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Centre will be run in conjunction with Sussex County FA and will be run by qualified coaches at Culver Road, Lancing.
SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football has been established in partnership with SSE, supporters of girls’ football participation and sponsor of the SSE Women’s FA Cup, with support from UEFA, FIFA and The Youth Sport Trust.
Club Chairman, Steve Taylor says he is “Looking forward to working with Sussex FA to provide girls from Lancing and the surrounding areas with a chance to play football in an organised and structured environment. We added a Ladies side this season and the natural progression is to add girls teams to the club and the SSE Wildcats initiative is a great way to get this started”.
Daniel Fuller-Smith, Club Secretary, added “As a club it is important to meet the needs of the local community if you are looking to put the club at the heart of the community. Having built a strong base over the last 12 months by merging with the youth and expanding the seniors into five teams, we now need to introduce girls’ football to the club and this is the perfect way to build a girls section”.
