International Women’s Day 2024
Last week, RUCT hosted their very own International Women’s Day event in partnership with Voluntary Action Rotherham. The event was a huge success and saw over 100 women from businesses and organisations across Rotherham attend.
The theme for the event was “Self-love”, so as part of the day women could part-take in meditation, a sound bath, Bollywood dancing and crafts. We also welcomed local caters Ayran Catering who provided fresh, homemade food for everyone that attended which went down a treat!
Hollie Webb, one of the Health & Wellbeing Managers at RUCT, told us “We are so pleased that the event was a hit. It was so empowering to have so many strong, creative and powerful women in one room celebrating each other and women around the world. We offer so many sessions and opportunities for women here at RUCT and so do many of our partners, like Voluntary Action Rotherham, so to have a day where we can highlight these for women is so important.”


Opportunities for Women and Girl’s in Football
Our women and girls programme offers pathways both for girls who are just starting out in their football journey, as well as to those who are more experienced and at a standard to join our Emerging Talent Programme. We facilitate FA programmes such as Wildcats, Squad Girls and Claim the Game, as well as having our own girls pathway.
This starts with Mini Millers (aged 18 months +), includes our Emerging Talent Programme, and continues right through to our partnership with Rotherham United Women’s F.C. We also run a women’s college programme, and several women’s recreational sessions.


Girls Emerging Talent Centre (ETC): The aim of our ETC for girls is to identify and develop potential future players by providing local, accessible, and high-quality training environments. These new centres offer increased playing time and varied football formats, and allow players to play for both an Emerging Talent Centre and a grassroots club. We have just relaunched the sign up form for our Girls ETC trials for the 24/25 season – scan the QR code to sign up!

Rotherham United Women F.C.: Rotherham United Community Trust are in proud partnership with Rotherham United Women, who have just reached the final of the East Midlands Women’s Regional Football League. The club welcomes players aged 16+ to their development, reserves or first team. These teams are fed through our partnership with Brinsworth Whitehill Junior Football Club.
