U9 Football is FUN.

We play in the Harrogate and Wharfedale District Junior Friendly 7v7 Football League.

We train on the pitches down on the Ings, opposite Wetherby Sports Association. 

We ensure training is fun and engaging for the boys, providing game related practices, that develop them across all areas of the FA 4 Corners Model - technically, physically, psychologically and socially.

We ensure that the boys are in a safe and friendly environment, and we focus on team work.

We insist that a parent/guardian is present for the duration of training and all players wear shin pads and suitable clothing.

Cost: £135 (includes WSA membership fee of £35)

From Ryan Grant, Head of Sport & Vocational Science, Leeds City College, UEFA B Licence Coach, FA Coaching Tutor and FA Coaching Mentor:

Nick was a fantastic candidate who engaged well on the course and shared idea’s actively with his peers. Nick then was able to fully apply the idea’s he had taken from the course and embedded them with his players across 2 extremely successful in-situ visits. Nick’s enthusiasm and energy within his visits was outstanding and he created a positive learning environment for all of his players, which was noticeably through their engagement and the smiles on their faces! As part of the L2 Coaching course not only did Nick have to complete 2x In-situ visits, he also had to complete a full project on the DNA of his team and club… Nick spent a vast amount of his own time planning the project and reviewing his players across all 4 corners. The amount of details within this was outstanding. This project was exemplary and has been showcased within West Riding County FA as best practice. Overall Nick was a fantastic learner and it is evident that he is a real role-model for his players and to others within the club”.
