Weetabix Wildcats


Get involved with Wildcats Centres in Dorset

Dorset Weetabix wildcats: Have fun, make friends, play football.

Wildcats Centres provide girls aged 5-11 years with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun and engaging environment created exclusively for girls. There are currently 1,600 Wildcats Centres across England, with The FA's aim for 2024 to have double this number of Wildcats Centres across the Country.

Weetabix Food Company and The Football Association [The FA] have partnered to encourage the nation to embrace healthy choices through their new 'Eat Well, Live Well, Play Well' initiative. The partnership see's the nation's favourite cereal become lead partner of Wildcats and the Official Breakfast Category Partner of the England Women's and Men's Senior Teams.

The sessions take place on a weekly basis, either after school or at weekends, subject to the local organiser. They provide a safe environment where girls can come together to have fun engaging with sport, develop fundamental skills, try a variety of sessions, learn new things and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport.

Each Wildcats Centre is run in conjunction with local County FA's and utilising qualified coaches and local facilities to offer girls a location nearby where they can get involved.

Wildcats has been running in Dorset since 2017 when we started with three centres. We now have nine confirmed centres starting up again in 2021.

Success stories in Dorset include Dorchester Town Youth now running four girls teams, Dexter Sports offering two girls teams and Poole Town Youth, one of our first centres, now offering two girls teams at the club.

Wildcats is a great way of starting up or developing the girls game at your club with The FA providing funding, training, kit and equipment packs to clubs involved in the programme.

If your club is interested in hosting a Wildcats Centre please get in touch with Justine Mosley (County Development Manager) on 01202 688277 or email Justine.Mosley@dorsetfa.com

If you’re new to football and don’t have boots that’s not a problem – Wildcats Centres can offer boot schemes so trainers are fine.

Contact development@dorsetfa.com or 01202 688277 to register your interest in the Wildcats.

 Centre costs vary from £1 - £3 per session but won’t be more than that.

All Wildcats coaches are a minimum Level 1 with all volunteers having an FA criminal records check and specific safeguarding training.
