Scottish FA Girls’ Soccer Centres launch

The Scottish FA has launched dedicated Girls’ Soccer Centres across Scotland, providing a fun environment for young girls to perfect their skills, grow in confidence and fall in love with football. 

 

The Girls’ Soccer Centres aim to leverage the success of the Scotland Women’s National Team (SWNT) to increase participation in football among primary school-aged girls across Scotland. 

 

28 Girls’ Soccer Centres are already in place across the six Scottish FA regions, with more expected to be launched in the wake of the SWNT’s participation at UEFA Women’s Euro 2017. 

 

Girls aged from five to twelve participate in the Girls’ Soccer Centres, which are run in partnership with local authorities and clubs to deliver weekly active sessions for girls in a relaxed and friendly environment. 

 

A member of the SWNT has been appointed as an ambassador for the centres within their home region, providing a visible female role model for the participating girls. 

 

The Girls’ Soccer Centres were officially launched on 25 April at Newark Primary School, with SWNT players Joelle Murray and Leanne Ross, ambassadors for the South East and Central Regions respectively, taking part in an active session with the pupils.  

 

The other regions are represented by Kim Little, North Region; Lisa Evans, East Region; Jane Ross, West Region; and Jo Love, South West Region. 

 

The launch of the Centres is part of the Scottish FA’s marketing campaign, “Our Girls, Our Game,” which aims to drive increased participation in football among young girls and in turn build confidence, develop teamwork and promote a healthy and active lifestyle. 

 

In addition to the Girls’ Soccer Centres, family-friendly fan zones will be held in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow to coincide with each Scotland fixture at the UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 finals, where Scotland have been drawn in Group D alongside England, Spain and Portugal.
