Foundation of Light has launched new weekly coaching sessions to inspire more girls to get involved in football.
Harton Technology College will host an SSE Wildcats Girls Football Centre from April providing youngsters aged 5-11 with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun and engaging environment.
The Centre will be run by specialist and qualified Foundation of Light coaches, offering links to local grassroots clubs, Player Development Squads and the Sunderland Girls Regional Talent Club to ensure there is a clear pathway for the girls into football.
There will also be opportunities for attending parents, carers and siblings to engage with the sport at the same time through Soccercise and Walking Football.
The SSE Wildcats Centre will provide a safe environment where girls can try football for the first time.
The sessions are ideal for girls to participate in sport, develop fundamental skills, meet new friends, have fun and create foundations for a lifelong love of football.
The Football Association and SSE teamed in 2017 to launch the programme at centres across the country.
Sessions will take place every Tuesday, beginning on 17th April between 5pm and 6pm and priced at £2 per session.
Sign up NOW to receive the first four sessions FREE! For more information, call 0191 5515309 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
