Everything parents and guardians need to know about SSE Wildcats:
What is SSE Wildcats?
SSE Wildcats football centres offer girls aged 7-11 a chance to try football for the first time and provide regular opportunities to play. Sessions take place every week at over 1,250 SSE Wildcats centres across the country and are focused on helping girls make friends, have fun and be active through football. All sessions are delivered by FA qualified coaches providing a safe place for girls to try football for the first time and develop key football skills.
How long does each session last?
Sessions will last for one hour.
How many girls will be taking part in the session?
It varies by centre but most SSE Wildcats sessions will have around 25 girls taking part.
How will my daughter be looked after during the session?
All sessions are delivered by FA qualified coaches providing a safe place for girls to try football for the first time and develop key football skills. The welfare of your daughter is key so we ensure that all SSE Wildcats coaches are fully trained including health and safety, safeguarding and more. We also train staff to deliver a range of different activities to ensure that the sessions are varied and fun.
Do I have to pay for SSE Wildcats training sessions?
Many of the 1,250 SSE Wildcats centres provide free taster sessions however this is at the discretion of each centre so check before attending. Most SSE Wildcats sessions charge a small cost to enable them to cover the costs of the venue. Peterborough United Foundation aims to keep costs as low as possible, with extended free taster trials.
What should my daughter wear?
We recommend that girls wear comfortable sportswear and closed-toe shoes but most centres will let you wear anything you want.
Does my daughter need to bring anything?
We provide all the equipment for the activities, so no need to send your daughter with anything other than appropriate clothing for outdoor play, a drink, lots of energy and a smile!
My daughter needs some extra help. Can she still come to SSE Wildcats?
Yes. We believe that football is for everyone. We want to ensure that every girl has an opportunity to take part and has a great experience. Your local centre can adapt what they do to suit your child. If they need a bit of extra help, a parent, carer or siblings can join them.
Can I come along to watch during the session?
Yes. We encourage parents and carers to stay and watch.
Is there an opportunity for me to help out with the sessions?
Yes. If you want to help out speak to us to find out how you can get involved.
