Players are encouraged to be themselves, be positive, use their initiative, listen, be open to learning new skills, make new friends and to respect club property.
All players, coaches, supporters and parents should respect one another both on and off the pitch.
Coaching is at the heart of what we do by teaching relevant tactics and techniques. We believe in letting our teams play, ensuring minimal distraction from the side line so they have a safe space to enjoy themselves.
Players are always encouraged to show their creative flair, to try something new, to not be scared of making mistakes, to push themselves, to make their own footballing decisions and to develop at their own pace.
Although individual creativity is important, we also teach our players how working together will have a positive impact. We also believe social involvement plays a major part in developing young people and players are encouraged to support one another.
We are a team of Volunteers
Our coaches are volunteers and are generally made up of parents of our players.
We make sure that all of our coaches (and any assistant coaches) are fully DBS Checked and have completed their Child Safeguarding Training before they are allowed to run a group.
Our Child Welfare Team continually monitor each Coach's qualifications to ensure they are always up to date.
The club encourage coaches to further their coaching credentials by funding FA Training Courses.
Our goal is to have at least one "FA Level 1 Coach" at each age group.
