All girls from the age of 5 to 11 are welcome.
If your daughter is interested in playing football please contact Charlotte or any club representative.

SSE Wildcats is led by Charlotte who is a Level 1 Qualified Coach and the Horsford Community Sports Young Leaders. We believe that at this age children can develop the skills and learn the rules of the game which gives them a head start when they begin to play competitively. Horsford FC are committed to developing children’s football for all children.

Sessions are £3 per week, and take place every Saturday morning at Horsford Primary School on Mill Lane.

What to expect from your child’s first SSE Wildcats session

SSE Wildcats provides a fun, friendly and safe environment where girls aged 5-11 can experience football for the first time.

All Wildcats centres are warm and welcoming but it can help ease any first-day nerves – from girls and parents – if you know what to expect.

What happens in an SSE Wildcats session?

SSE Wildcats sessions normally happen after school or at the weekend. They take place once a week and last for around an hour.

Sessions focus on developing your child’s fundamental movement skills – agility, balance coordination and speed – required not only for football but for all sports.

Girls will learn new football skills, make brilliant friendships and have fun together.

Each session kicks off with a team talk, introducing any children who are new to Wildcats and explaining what the session will involve.

Then it’s time for the fun to begin.

Football skills are incorporated into themed games and activities. Some of the children’s favourite themes include pirates, jungle animals and superheroes – this also helps to engage your child’s imagination and develop their creativity.

How much does a Wildcats session cost?

One of the main aims of Wildcats is to be affordable and accessible for all girls.

For this reason, Wildcats operates on a flexible pay-per-play basis. This means there is a small cost of £3 per session to cover the costs of the coach and venue for each session your child attends.

What is SSE Wildcats?

SSE Wildcats football centres offer girls aged 5-11 a chance to try football for the first time and provide regular opportunities to play.

Sessions take place every week at over 880 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 usually lasts one hour however this may vary so check with your local centre before attending.

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.

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. If she’s a budding goalkeeper, we recommend packing her a pair of gloves. Many of the SSE Wildcats centres host fancy dress days where, if your daughter wants to, she can dress up for the session.

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 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, absolutely. Parents, carers and siblings are also encouraged to stay, watch and get involved!

Is there an opportunity for me to help out with the sessions?

Yes. If you want to help out speak to your local SSE Wildcats centre lead to find out how you can get involved.
