THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A MORE EXCITING TIME TO BE INVOLVED IN GIRLS FOOTBALL IN LEICESTERSHIRE & RUTLAND

With an excellent network of local grassroots clubs, it has never been easier for Girls to be involved in playing football.

Girls Football is in the ascendancy at the moment with exposure to Senior football and the England Lionesses has never been better. We are very lucky to be able to offer a Girls football league as well as several mixed football opportunities.

Have a look over all the opportunities we have below to get involved in youth football.

WHY DO WE MAKE OUR KIDS PLAY LIKE ADULTS?

Let’s provide a safe and fun environment for young people to develop in football.

Leicestershire & Rutland FA encourage a modern, child-friendly approach to youth football, challenging the win-at-all-costs mentality that is stifling development and enjoyment for young people.

Working together with a proactive attitude, adults can help develop a better learning environment for young people that put their development needs at the centre of the process.
