HOW CAN I HELP?

Whilst score coaching runs the u5/6 soccer school, as well as coaching the children, part of our brief is to encourage parental volunteers to help with both coaching and admin duties. From u7 onwards and the start of regular weekend matches / week night training, teams are all volunteer run. Thus whilst the children are with the soccer school, we actively encourage parental help, and provide ongoing mentoring for potential parental coaches / administrators. If you are potentially interested in helping on either the coaching or admin side, please don’t be shy, let us know by emailing us, or speak to one of our coaches at a session. Both the club and score coaching are there to mentor you and help every step of the way – no one is thrown in the deep end. The earlier we can get you involved, the better.

CAN WE JUST TURN UP? WAITING LIST?

As a rule, both u5 & u6 groups remain open and we take on new players throughout the season. You can contact us for more info. On your first visit, please help ensure we have your contact details.

WHEN DO MATCHES START?

Under national FA guidelines, most children start playing matches at u7 (school year 2). These are friendly matches, and to encourage the importance of player development being prioritised over results, matches remain predominantly friendlies or small one off competitions at u8 / 9 / 10, with a slightly increased level of competition at u11/12.

RCFC supports this approach. The rules do allow year one children to play matches when they have turned 6. We do very occasionally consider this if we genuinely feel it will benefit the player. From Xmas onwards during the u6 season, we start preparing for the start of matches the following season.
