1What is Huddle.jpg

Born in September 2019, Huddle aims to introduce girls aged between four and 11 to football in a fun, relaxed, sociable and friendly way to ensure they have a positive first experience of football. Huddle is delivered by clubs and partners across Wales who want to grow the number of girls playing football in their local area.

Girls can expect to make new friends, learn some football skills through fun games and build their confidence throughout the sessions. If girls want to progress onto a club team, the coaches at the sessions can direct them to their nearest team, but for those that are happy playing in Huddle sessions, they’re welcome to just play there!

The first phase saw our clubs and partners deliver Huddle to just under 500 girls, most who have never played club football before! We’re excited to launch the second phase of Huddle with our clubs and partners, across Wales, ready to kick off.

Huddle is back. Although a little different this year given the circumstances of COVID-19 – clubs around the country are ready to welcome new girls to their Huddle sessions! You can be confident that they have put safety measures in place to ensure the girls are safe while they are having a fun experience of football.

1Why Huddle.jpg

Here’s what some of the parents said about their daughters’ experiences at Huddle:

“The fact that it is all girls made huddle seem a more accessible route for my daughter to develop an enjoyment in playing football”

“It's there to build confidence and skills so no pressure on the children”

“She loves sport and plays a lot of football with her dad and brother in the garden. This was a great opportunity for her to join a fun session and where she could develop some skills”

“The fact it was girls only and indoors which made it a non-intimidating environment for her to gain some confidence and enjoy the experience."
