Women’s and Girls' Football
From playing at grassroots to national level with Newcastle United Women’s Football Club, Newcastle United Foundation’s Women’s and Girls’ football programmes provide pathways for the next generation of players and coaches.
Through a number of opportunities for participants, we aim to increase the number of women and girls playing football on a regular basis. We are also committed to providing the opportunities for women and girls to develop skills and confidence and progress within the pathway as a player, coach or official.
Led by a professional and talented team of coaches and former players, our Women’s and Girls’ football programmes are a welcoming, safe and fun environment for participants to hone their skills and take steps towards their future in football.
