The teams will begin in Division 6 before moving to Division 4. The teams allow girls to practice skills learned in lessons and put them into a fun, competitive game. Older girls also play with some members of staff, helping to build relationships and see one another outside the school setting in a more relaxed environment. Girls are expected to commit to one fixture a week. Lots of girls are members, allowing pressure to be kept off girls during busy times. The season runs from September to April.
