We have all seen our fantastic lionesses leading the way in the headlines and we are pleased that in Hampshire, we have continued this legacy on a local level. There are loads of ways, more-so than ever before for women to get involved in the game in Hampshire.
We have even gone that extra mile as to match women to their preferred choice of football format with our #PlayOn initiative.
We also understand that lifestyle plays a big part in all of this - time, work, family. All the associated 'barriers' which may get in the way from time to time, but we've taken all of that on board and have set about implementing an effective strategy to combat these 'barriers' to participation.
We have a dedicated Women & Girls Football Development Officer who is available to assist you with all of your enquiries and get you involved in the game. Additionally, we deliver an extensive range of programmes, sessions and initiatives around the county all of which are designed to fit round you and your lifestyle demands.
For those hungry to get back into the 11v11, traditional format of the game we have one female adult football league in the county - the Hampshire County Womens Football League and a dedicated countywide girls youth football league - the Hampshire Girls Youth Football League which caters for teams from U7 to U18. Furthermore, there is also a Sunday youth female league - the Southampton & District Girls Football League. There is now a clear pathway for all affiliated girls football clubs from youth to adult.
