Club Ethos and Coaching Philosophy

Club Ethos

Our club ethos is a written declaration that sets out how we want to run as a club. It’s simple and concise and can be understood by players, parents and officials.

  • To provide football to children of all ages and abilities, in a safe and friendly environment.
  • To deliver age-appropriate coaching to support long-term player development.
  • To encourage all players to try their best and make the most of their abilities.
  • To offer a challenging but supportive environment where children can learn from their mistakes without undue pressure and anxiety.
  • To promote good behaviour and respect for others.

Coaching Philosophy

Our clearly defined coaching philosophy provides direction, purpose and guidance to the process of coaching young players.

We promote a holistic approach based upon the FA’s four-corner model for long-term player development, with age appropriate coaching recommendations for players aged 5-11 and 12-16.
