What is Wildcats?
Leighton Park Rangers F.C. is very proud to be an FA approved Wildcats Centre.
Wildcats is for girls who want to get involved with football for the very first time or want the opportunity to play with other girls their own age. Our fun and inclusive sessions are all run by FA qualified coaches.
Girls football is very much in our hearts at LPR F.C. with the current Chairman having managed his daughter’s team through the club.
We are currently starting our Wildcats at Minis (Reception age) and U6 (School Year 1). There is then a pathway for our Wildcats to develop all the way through the club up to U16s.
At Wildcats, girls are able to play football in a fun and friendly environment which provides the perfect setting for girls to meet new friends, build confidence and stay active.
