Who are SRYFC Girls?

At SRYFC Girls, a focus is placed on creating a fun setting through exciting girl only Wildcats sessions, supported by the Essex FA. Once a girl feels comfortable in the footballing setting they can progress into age groups which have their own coaching sessions. These are led by volunteer coaches who are focused on building teamwork and developing each player’s individual skills in an environment that is both safe and encourages the players to have further fun. SRYFC Girls are represented in a range of age groups in the Essex County Girls Football League.

SRYFC Girls Wildcat sessions operate on a pay as you play basis. Our SRYFC Girls sessions are funded by subscriptions from players. Full team kits are from the generous sponsorship of local firms and organisations.

If you would like your company associated with this well respected community voluntary organisation please contact the girls’ club secretary Louise Hawkins.
