A fun, welcoming introduction to football for girls

Looking for a fun place for girls aged 5-11 to try out football? Then we’d love to see them come along to Wildcats at the YMCA Village.

Wildcats is perfect for finding out if younger girls will enjoy football as it’s non-competitive and all about enjoying themselves, learning the basics and building confidence with friends of the same age. Come along to make new friends and be introduced to football from our qualified coaches.

Walking football is at a walking pace and designed to help people maintain an active lifestyle, as well as getting those back playing football due to age or who’ve had to stop due to injuries.

A light minimal contact sport with running or jogging while the ball is in play being penalised.

Despite this, the game is very competitive and play can be extremely tactical – favouring players that take their time and read the pitch.
