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.

"Girls with Goals aims to create a community where girls aged between 4 and 18 get to play and experience soccer coaching in a welcoming, sociable, fun and positive way. We are very lucky to have two inspirational and talented female professional soccer players as club owners, and a wealth of connections with other female pro players. We hope using our connections and building on our club's history of supporting young female soccer players, we can create a program of events that reaches far and wide in Central Florida and gets more girls involved in the game."
