Here at Mytchett Athletic Football Club, we aim to provide a safe and enjoyable environment, in which to allow children and young adults to play football.
We encourage participation by both girls and boys, and we are looking forward to having our first girls’ league teams very soon. We already have girls who play within our younger age groups.
We at Mytchett wish you to know that child safety is paramount; a few children have died as a result of unsafe goals falling on them. At Mytchett, we only use the portable plastic style “Samba” goal, which is securely fastened down using a minimum of four ground spikes. On full size pitches we use the normal ground sunk football goals.
We also encourage partnership schemes with local schools and our coaches are available to give advice and support.
All our age groups have at least one FA qualified coach and First Aider, but we encourage more. The club also has a Child Protection and Ethical Standards Officer.
The “Goal” of Mytchett Athletic Football Club is: To provide the club members with the best possible facilities, coaching, equipment and child safety at the best possible value for money.
