The FA is recruiting new organisers to operate Wildcats Centres and support our mission of providing football opportunities for girls aged 5-11 years.
Moving into its third full year, Wildcats now has over 1,250 centres nationwide and we’re not stopping there. We are increasing the number of centres and invite you to join our Wildcats family by running a Wildcats Centre in 2020 in Dorset.
Wildcats sessions take place on a weekly basis, either after school or at weekends, subject to each local organiser.
Who Can Apply?
Applications are welcomed from any organisation that meets the Wildcats criteria. Organisations that have previously delivered Wildcats can apply to run additional Centres, in doing so they must continue running the original Centre(s) they have set up.
