Football Women Covid Risk Assessment
UWE Womens Football welcomes players of all abilities. Our main goal is to continually improve and grow as both a club and as individual players in a fun, friendly atmosphere. So whether you’re a seasoned player looking for a new challenge or you’ve never kicked a ball before, or if you're just looking for an engaging way to keep fit and active, then UWE WFC is the club for you!
Teams – We have two teams competing in BUCS (national university league)
1st Team Western 1A, a competitive side with big ambition, potentially looking for a promotion!
2nd Team Western 3A Offering a great platform for those looking to compete for a 1st team place or to just learn the ropes.
Training/Matches – We train every Monday night at 7 pm at Hillside gardens and the 1st team also trains on a Thursday at 7:30, just a short walk from Frenchay Campus. Matches are most Wednesdays during term time.
Socials – BUCS Wednesdays!! Most weeks we all meet up to celebrate a successful day on the pitch. Themed nights are planned by our Social Sec, usually going out party with the rest of the UWE sports teams. Highlights include Christmas Party and Varsity night.
Obviously, sports and socials are going to be looking pretty different this year however, we are already looking at ways that we can adapt to the circumstances. The BUCS league will be starting in January as far as we know, but we will be looking to plan friendlies against other local teams in the meantime.
Varsity – Hopefully by the time Varsity comes around, we will be able to take part and celebrate as usual!! UWE vs Bristol, this is a season highlight for the players and all the university sports teams involved. And the night out after is always a highlight.
Trips – TOUR!! We really hope that tour will still be on this year and if it is we will make sure that it is the best holiday ever!! Each of the UWE teams has the opportunity to go on tour to either ITALY, AMSTERDAM, or CROATIA. A week of fixtures and nights out with universities from across the country!!
What makes us the best society?
We have many accomplishments under our belt! In the past years we've earned league champions, cup champions and at the UWESU sports awards, we have been nominated for a number of awards including: Sports Club of the Year, Team of the Year Captain of the Year, Sports Personality, Newcomer of the Year... the list goes on!
Our socials are also a sight to see, never will you have a dull night if you head out with the football girls! One of the greatest things about all these achievements and activities is that you get to experience it all with your friends! And all of the girls this year have certainly made friends for life.
Who can join?
This club welcomes a variety of abilities, whether you've never kicked a ball before to if you consider yourself to be the next Messi- you can be assured there is a place for you in the squad!
What's stopping you?
Nothing! One of the best decisions you will do as a university student is to join UWE women's football team!
However, if you do have reservations....
Don't hesitate to ask questions
and why don't you come and try out a training session, what's the worst that could happen...
