Number 1 for Girls and Women's Football

We Are Number 1… 
What makes Wetherby Athletic Number 1 for girls and women's football?
Wetherby Athletic has invested significantly in girls and women's football over the last two years. Our growth has matched the increasing popularity of the girls’ and women's game nationally and we are rightly proud of our set-up which now has over a hundred players. We welcome players of all abilities and at all age groups whether experienced players looking for the best club in the region or new players taking their first steps on the footballing ladder. The club were awarded the West Riding FA “Community Club of the Year in 2015”.
Wherever you start your footballing journey we have a team to welcome you. We start at age 5 and have teams at all age groups through to our women’s senior teams. Many of our players progress all the way through the age groups developing their skills and abilities as they go.
We have fully qualified FA Licensed coaches at all levels including some who are qualified to UEFA B level. Most of our coaches have many years of practical experience to supplement professional qualifications.  Some of our teams have additional professional support from external coaches,  development programmes and specialist coaching for goalkeepers. 
Apart from developing football skills and abilities we also stress the importance of enjoying yourself and keeping fit and active. Our motto “Fun, Friends,Fitness and Football” sums up neatly what we’re about. Our teams take part in a range of football related activities. As well as playing local leagues we also playing in galas, visit local professional clubs (we have links with Doncaster Belles and Leeds United) and we run  social events for the players and their families.
We support players’ wider development too, which is excellent for those looking to build a good CV for school and college or for things like Duke of Edinburgh awards. We actively encourage our players to become coaches in their own right and support them to achieve FA qualifications where they want to. We have supported some of our players to become referees and we run a Young Leaders programme backed by West Riding FA which enables players to help organise events around the club and gain valuable ‘volunteering’ experience.
And then there’s our facilities .. .. which are amongst the best in the region with 10 pitches and all year round training facilities. We have a truly magnificent club house which is well- equipped with fully kitted out changing rooms, social space and a bar area which serves refreshments and provides a great venue to socialise in after a match or training.
So, if you're not part of our club …. Why not?

US Penfriends for U10 Girls

Who remembers LUFC Andy?  He used to coach via the LUFC Foundation with the then U15s before jetting off on his coaching travels to the US. Through Twitter we have being keeping in touch and following his journey.

One of his new roles is coaching an U10 Girls team. Pete suggested that we could set up a Pen Pal arrangement with the team; to date we have 13 of our girls ages 6-10 ready to get involved.

The girls will be able to not only share their experiences of football/soccer, but also will just enjoy just writing to a new friend overseas.

The American girls are busily penning their opening letters which we should receive late next week. We can't wait to receive them.

Next up is a Pen Pal exchange; we'll go to America !!!!!!
