At Palace for Life, we aim to inspire everyone to engage with football, develop fundamental skills, learn new things and create the foundation for a lifelong love of football.
Our Wildcats sessions provide girls aged 5 to 11 years old with the opportunity to play football in a fun and safe environment. The sessions are a great opportunity to welcome new girls into the game in an encouraging environment to learn the fundamental skills, as well as helping improve their confidence in a sporting environment.
Abigail, age 11: “My coach has encouraged me so much and inspired me to try and to do my best, and to challenge myself. When I come to the Wildcats sessions it makes me so happy.”
Issy, age 9: “I love playing football and being able to make new friends and have fun.”
Enzo, a parent of one of the attendees: “I would just like to say my daughter has really enjoyed her time at Wildcats. The coaches have been amazing. She is already becoming a better footballer and showing a lot more confidence. Well done to you all.’
Anne, a parent of a child who attends Wildcats: “My daughter has increased her confidence and willingness to participate in sports since joining her Wildcats team. We are very happy”.
We deliver sessions in Primary schools and grassroots football clubs across Croydon and south London.
