TOTON UNITED; NOTTINGHAMSHIRE FA ‘INSPIRING THE FUTURE’ AWARD WINNERS FOR MAY 2022.
April saw our nomination window for our Inspiring the Future Award accessible to parents, coaches, and volunteers of those involved within our Weetabix Wildcats programme in Nottinghamshire to nominate their Wildcat providers.
For those not aware of what our Inspiring the Future Award is all about; this is a reward and recognition scheme that aims to encourage providers to continuously raise standards of playing environments and recognise the great work that our grassroots coaches and volunteers are doing behind the scenes to support us in helping young girls to develop a real love for the game through the Weetabix Wildcats programme.
The Weetabix Wildcats programme is all about increasing fun football opportunities for girls aged 5-11 years and providing them with a positive playing experience at sessions where these girls can have fun, make friends, and play football as well as developing skills that can support them in their day-to-day life’s such as confidence, team building, leadership and much more.
We received a vast amount of nominations received by parents of the girls that attend Toton’s Wildcats sessions who highlighted their session environment as being “fun, engaging and provides their daughters with a real sense of belonging.” Which is fantastic to hear and certainly demonstrates the ethos of the programme!
On Wednesday 13 th July Notts FA Participation Officer; Michelle Marshall, Designated Safeguarding Officer; Rachael Wilks & Earl the all ears Elephant; County Safeguarding Mascot had the opportunity to attend Toton’s sessions and see first-hand the environment that the Club create for these young girls to thrive and develop through the game. A big Well Done to Colin and his Programme Delivery Workforce for the fantastic job they are doing in providing this regular
opportunity for girls both on and off the pitch.
Everyone at Notts FA would like to Congratulate Toton United with this Award and we thank everyone involved in the Wildcats Community for all their support and contribution to developing girls football opportunities in the County.
