The guidelines also suggest that football sessions be advertised in "places where girls go, i.e. coffee shops or on the back of toilet doors".
The FA says attendance should be awarded with giveaways of items such pink whistles and other kit.
According to the FA, the guidelines were drawn up in 2014 and were built on the views of young girls who, the FA has suggested, should be more readily listended to and better represented.
Despite being two years old, the guidelines have been spread across social media in the past 24 hours, with many people slamming them as sexist or offensive.
On Monday (12 December), the FA released a statement saying: "The document is aimed at engaging young women who don't currently play football. It was created following research into women and girls playing football, with feedback from both participants and non-participants, and encourages a creative approach to increasing participation numbers."
So @FA guidelines for girls football might be a bit mad. Not all girls want pink whistles/water bottles/kit. But some do. And if it helps..— sally nugent (@sallynugent) December 13, 2016
The FA are so outdated and living in the dark ages. Pink whistles, scented bibs and breaks for social media for womans football!!— Jason Edens (@Jasonedens) December 13, 2016
There's a surprise... a patronising, outdated and sexist suggestion from the Old Duffers at the FA— Mr Laurence (@LaurenceMcBeth) December 13, 2016
Durham schoolgirls (quite rightly) criticise highly sexist FA. This is ridiculous. Well done for speaking up! https://t.co/Aadj2emyQr— Abi McCarrick (@tastydesignltd) December 13, 2016
