Squad Girls Football
Find out how to “be a part of the #NottsSQUADS” here.
The aim for this new and exciting programme is to provide girls between the ages of 12-14 a fun, relevant and engaging recreational offer that allows them to develop themselves as much as their football skills in a safe, inclusive environment.
The programme has been specifically designed to give autonomy, choice and voice to the girls who are involved in the sessions. By adopting this approach, young people will have the freedom to develop their social identity, become a valued member of a team and build their self-confidence through engaging in +fun and flexible football activity.
We hope that participation in this programme will support young girls to cultivate a positive connection to physical activity and football, developing healthy habits for their futures and developing themselves as competent and confident young leaders and contributors to wider society.
Football has the power to change lives for the better. It can contribute to physical and mental wellbeing; it can provide opportunities to collaborate with others and it can help to shape the place of girls in the world. So much has been achieved in progressing women and girls’ football up to this point. However, we recognise the game has so much more potential to grow and develop for women and girls, and this new programme provides a fantastic stepping stone for girls to either continue with their recreational football journey, or start to play for the very first time!
