Melksham Town Football Club is to run a series of Wildcat football sessions for girls aged 5-11. The sessions are designed to provide a safe environment where girls can try football for the first time, while inspiring participants to engage with football, meet new friends, develop fundamental skills, learn new things and create the foundation for a lifelong love of football.
The sessions will take place on Thursday evenings from 6.15-7.15pm, and will run for 16 weeks from 19 April at the club’s Oakfield complex.
The SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Centres are an Football Association initiative designed to provide a fun and engaging environment exclusively for girls. More than 200 clubs were piloted across England in 2017, with the scheme now being extended to more than 900 centres with 26,000 participants across the country.
The Melksham sessions will be lead by FA certified coaches who are also CRC checked and have experience of coaching girls football. The club currently has around 100 girls and ladies playing football at the club.
All the sessions will be based on having fun and learning some new skills along the way.
There is no up front cost and it is just £2 per session paid on the day but registration is essential.
