KEYWORTH UNITED FC
PLATT LANE NG12 5GD
For the 2018-19 season, our sessions will continue to be run on the specially marked out soccer school pitches just in front of the clubhouse at KUCFC’s Platt Lane home ground. Please note that if the pitches are frozen or waterlogged, we will look to use Keyworth Leisure Centre astro pitch. This will help us beat the weather throughout the winter!
Full Clubhouse facilities available!

WHEN CAN YOU JOIN KUFC SOCCER SCHOOL?
Our usual entry point for children coincides with when children start school, ie in the majority of cases the September after they have turned 4.
These children will form our u5s group. We do give 4 year old pre-schoolers the opportunity to do taster sessions, and if at the end of these the parents & coaches agree the sessions are suitable for the child and s/he is responding well to instruction and likes the environment, then they can join the u5s group (please note they then stay in the u5s when starting school).
WHAT GEAR DOES MY CHILD NEED?
We ask that parents take responsibility for their child arriving in clothing that is appropriate for both the weather conditions; and for taking part in sporting activity.
In colder weather, it is better for a child to come layered up and remove layers as they get warmed up, rather than in too few layers. Waterproof coats are recommended during the winter months; gloves / hats when it is especially cold; equally sun screen is recommended on very sunny days.
Boots with rubber / moulded or metal studs can be worn at Platt Lane. Trainers are fine when the ground is relatively hard, but are not recommended if slippy / heavy / muddy. Trainers or rubber studs only if we’re at the leisure centre please. We ask that ALL players wear shinpads at every session.
