After a short break over Christmas we are back and ready with all our programmes this week.
Community Development is back with their Kicks sessions, Move the Goalposts, Walking Football, COGs – Crawley Old Girls, Crawley Town Flyers and Premier League Girls football sessions which have some new things to come this year.
As part of getting more women involved and included in football we have a brand-new session which started on the 11th January, this session runs on a Friday evening from 6 – 7pm (after the Wildcats session from 5-6 pm every week for 5 – 11-year-old Girls). This session is for girls 11 plus looking to progress their football skills, however no previous skills or knowledge related to football is required. This session is completely free with us, so why not come down and check it out this week.
