Wigan Athletic Community Trust deliver 12 sessions of girls football a week at schools, grassroots football clubs and youth clubs.

  • Spring League improved participants' football skills and techniques. 
  • Community Trust run sessions at Wigan Youth Zone each Thursday.
  • Two SSE Wildcats football centres have opened in Wigan. 

Secondary school pupils from seven schools across Wigan Borough recently took part in the Wigan School Games Spring League at Wigan Youth Zone.

Held over three weeks, the league aimed to improve the football skills and techniques of girls in Wigan while also providing them with an opportunity to meet new people and make friends.

As part of its Girls Football Programme, Wigan Athletic Community Trust run sessions at the facility every Thursday from 5-6pm for girls aged 11-16. 

Coaches from the club’s official charity deliver 12 sessions a week in secondary schools, at grassroots football clubs and youth clubs across the borough.

In addition, opportunities for girls aged 5-11 years old are also available through the SSE Wildcats scheme, an initiative that provides a safe environment where girls can try football for the first time.

These sessions take place at: 

  • Dean Trust Wigan (Monday 5-6pm)
  • Lowton High School (Wednesday 6-7pm)
