We Are Stevenage Starlets Football Club
28 April 2017
We are pleased to announce the launch of our brand new club! We are passionate about girls football and are proud to be the first all girls club in Stevenage.
Our goal is to get more girls playing the game
Football is not only a fantastic way for children to improve their fitness and enhance their physical development, it can also be a way to learn vital life skills such as determination, discipline, resilience, and teamwork.
Unfortunately it's not always easy for girls to make the most of this opportunity. While the game is changing, girls teams can still feel like an afterthought in clubs where the focus is primarily on boys football.
We don’t want our girls to feel second best. So we decided to start a club where their needs come first. A place where girls can feel comfortable and confident learning the game and enjoy developing their skills.
A club with a strong set of values at its heart
It goes without saying that by offering high quality coaching we will help our girls improve their football skills. However we also recognise that some of the most important lessons they will learn with us will be in their heads and not with their feet.
From developing a sense of fair play, to learning how to be humble in victory or gracious in defeat, football can have a significant impact on a child's personal development. So we think it's vital to create an environment where attitude is considered just as important as ability.
That's why we wanted to build a club with a strong set of values at its heart. Everyone taking part, whether it be players, parents, coaches or volunteers, agree to abide by them. They are:
Integrity, Equality, Trust, Respect, Enjoyment, Teamwork, Loyalty and Sportsmanship

Although we're just starting out we have big plans and are looking for new players and coaches for teams across school years 2-6.
Based at Lodge Farm School, we train on Thursday evenings and play games in the Hertfordshire Girls Football Partnership League on Saturdays.
If you are interested in joining us as a player, coach or volunteer please email us at email@example.com for more information about the opportunities we have at present.
