As a Player

Children can start playing football with Felpham Colts from as young as four years old, carrying on all the way into adulthood. As well as the positive impact on health, there are lots of reasons why joining Felpham Colts is a great thing to do for a child. Just a few of the many benefits include:

Making friends – joining a youth football team will give a child the chance to forge friendships with their team mates that can last a lifetime.

Building self confidence – a great way for children to gain confidence is through doing something they love with their friends.

Improving communication – to be successful on the pitch a team must work well together, which means communicating with each other when playing and passing the ball.

Building parent/child bonds – football is an opportunity to share something that you both love.

Improving social skills – when playing as part of a team, children can learn how to communicate with each other and with adults such as coaches and referees.

Increased energy – playing sport regularly will generally give a child more energy, which in turn can lead to greater stamina and physical ability, and improved mental agility.

Greater focus – playing regularly for a youth football team is a positive addition to a child’s routine, giving them something healthy and enjoyable to focus on.

As a Volunteer

It’s not just children who can get involved. It takes an army of helpers to run Felpham Colts.

We need Parents and Guardians to volunteer as helpers, managers, coaches or committee members. You don’t need any previous experience. We can show you what to do or provide a tailored role for the support you can provide. If you are a parent or guardian and would like to get involved, please speak to your child’s team manager or contact Emma Aylward

This document will be a good starting point to help you understand the type of support you can provide to the team and the requirements set out by the English FA.
