We believe 2020 is going to be a very important year for girls football.
Following the sizeable exposure leading up to last years Women’s World Cup, and leading into the Euro Championships next year, we are perfectly positioned to extend this positivity & influence within the Southern Counties.
As a professional & reputable innovator of coaching models, we are aware of some of the historical challenges surrounding the girls football model & pathway. We are are hugely enthused by recent changes with the girls model and the focus shown by the FA through the successful FA Wildcats Model.
What is the Wildcats FA Girls Football Initiative?
What we know..
– Largely girls are not given the opportunities to experience the game at the early years within school. UC are helping change this by providing schools a number of complimentary initiatives to help inspire girls.
– Generally, girls are not excited by the game within school environments, which is usually dominated by boys in the playgrounds. Our football model system allows girls to enter the game at any level.
– Historically girls have perceived it as a ‘boys’ game and have not been excited by the game. Football has not been perceived cool or feminine to some girls. With our close relationships with schools and clubs, we are making a huge impact and it is refreshing to see this change.
– Generally, when girls do play they do so for more intrinsic means, and not motivated by success. Girls are motivated by the prospect of partaking with like-minded girls, building new social interactions, whilst learning new skills and techniques. Girls are more inquisitive than boys, and are happy to learn how to apply techniques to activities.
We are delighted to be a leader in the driving of girl’s football, and the work of our Football Development Officer David Meek has been instrumental behind the growth.
The support of David and our experienced development team has allowed more girls to experience the game, whilst improving the structure and delivery of girls specific events.
