At What Age Can You Join Colts?

Our usual entry point for players 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.

What Gear Does My Child Need?

Astro trainers or boots with rubber / moulded studs only when we are on a 3g surface, and also recommended for grass – no metal studs please.

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; sun screen is recommended on very sunny days.

What Is the Cost?

Mini Colts attendees are entitled to attend 2 x free taster sessions before committing to any payments. After this, due to the high demand for places, we ask for block payments in instalments (this works out at approx. £5 per session).

The u8-11 girls only sessions and Thursday evening u7-11 waiting list sessions are £5 / pay on the day.

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, WBCFC 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, 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? Is There A Waiting List?

We would ask that you don’t just turn up unannounced at a session but contact us in advance via email. Some sections are full, and there’s nothing worse than a child turning up excited about playing only to be told they can’t (when this does happen we will normally let the child join in on that day rather than send them home – but if we are full and have started a waiting list, they will then have to go on that list, so will still experience disappointment having had a taste of the sessions).
