Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation is pleased to announce that plans have been approved to deliver multiple Weetabix Wildcats Centres across the Wakefield District.
Through striking this deal, the centres offer over 200 young girls the opportunity to take part in non-competitive football, tailor-made for participants who want to try football for the very first time or with girls of a similar age.
The project aims to target participants, aged between 5 and 11, encouraging them to engage more with football in a fun and friendly environment.
The sessions also allow participants to have fun, meet new people, stay active and also develop fundamental skills which may help them transition into a grassroots football team.
Although it is known for its Rugby League connections, in recent years, Wakefield Trinity Ladies FC has utilised their resources, offering women and young girls the opportunity to thrive in the sports sector.
All this hard work has issued the club with some very successful seasons, increasing their popularity on both a local, regional and global scale.
Through these all-new Wildcats centres, the Women’s game is being given the nutrients to grow, hopefully offering the chance for more girls to graduate through the system.
Speaking on the prospect of the all-new centres, Wakefield Trinity LFC Chairman, Craig Shepherd, said, “I am delighted that Trinity LFC has been able to play a part in getting these centres up and running.
“With issues brought about by the pandemic, the Women’s game hasn’t been able to grow at the speed we would have liked and to be in the position to offer young girls the chance to find their feet in the grassroots game is a great feeling.
“We cannot wait to see them all up and running.”
All of the sessions will be delivered by qualified coaches on a weekly basis, usually after school hours or in the evening, and they provide a safe environment with great facilities where the girls can lay the foundations for a lifelong love of the sport.
