As a Player

We all know that it’s important to stay fit and active for our general health and wellbeing in both mind and body. With Government statistics showing a concerning rise in childhood obesity throughout the UK, it’s important that we encourage our children to stay active and engage in physical activity. Fitness is one of the key benefits of getting young people involved in fun sporting activities, such as playing youth football. 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.

 

To join Felpham Colts FC either as a player yourself or to show interest for your child then please select the correct age group via the drop down menu at the youth team section.

The Age groups are separated based on School year from September. For example if your child is in Year 4 as of September they will be eligible to play in the Under 9s.

Select the correct age and use the contact button for the Age Group Coordinator giving your name and the players name, school year and Date Of Birth. Please note that we have a limit on numbers per team and hold a waiting list for those that are currently full. Someone will be in touch as soon as possible once you contact us.

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

The document attached at the button below 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.

Having read the document please contact your Teams Manager, AGC or alternatively Russ Chandler, our Football Development Officer, who will be happy to provide further information and is contactable via the Club Officials page.
