Girls with Goals
Girls with Goals aims to empower, inspire and support young women and girls to get involved in soccer at all levels in Central Florida. Launched in December 2022, Girls with Goals has an exciting program of events planned for 2023.
Anyone and everyone can get involved with our Girls with Goals events, no matter of your experience. We actively welcome other clubs ad schools to join us at these events, as we make soccer more accessible and fun for all.
Each week on our social media @fchighland we will be showcasing some incredible soccer players in our weekly player showcase. We also will be running a huge competition in January to win a hamper of soccer gifts. Below are some events we have lined up, with new ones being added all the time.
