Help Inspire The Next Generation Through Wildcats

The FA is recruiting new organisers to operate an SSE Wildcats centre - could you be one?


The FA is recruiting new organisers to operate an SSE Wildcats centre and support our mission of providing football opportunities for girls aged 5-11 years.

Moving into its second full year, SSE Wildcats now has over 800 centres nationwide and has attracted over 17,000 new girls to play the game for the first time.

The sessions take place on a weekly basis, either after school or at weekends, subject to each local organiser.

They provide a safe environment where girls can have fun engaging with sport, make new friends, develop fundamental skills and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport.

When approved to become an SSE Wildcats centre you will receive funding, kit and equipment; everything you need to run your sessions. You will also be taken through induction training which will help you understand how to coach a complete newcomer.
