Mixed teams encouraged
AFC are running the following teams for the 2020 Season:
· Development Squad Ages 5 & 6 (mixed boys & girls)
· Development Squad Ages 7 & 8 (mixed boys & girls)
· MiniRoos Under 10 (mixed boys & girls)
· MiniRoos Under 11 (mixed boys & girls)
· Juniors Under 12 (mixed boys & girls)
· Junior Under 12 Girls
· Junior Under 15 (mixed boys & girls)
· Junior Under 16 (mixed boys & girls)
Our weekly MiniRoos mixed team sessions allow our young MiniBlues to build confidence while learning the basic skills of the game without the added pressure of performing in games against other teams.
Currently our only all girls teams where girls can join girl's only teams with friends their own age and play against other girl's teams are Junior Under 12 & Senior Women.
We are looking at having an under 14s girls team this year. We know that there are some year 7 and 8 girls looking to join a soccer team. We would love to have enough for a new girls team. Please get in touch or come to our open day on Sunday 24th February 10am-midday.
AFC provides coaching sessions and set up matches in a relaxed environment where the aim is to teach new skills in an enjoyable way. The smaller fields, modified rules and fewer players mean a more enjoyable game with more opportunities to touch the ball and more opportunities to score goals, once again increasing the likelihood of an overall positive experience.
As your child progresses through the various age groups they will be introduced to playing environments that most suit their stage of development and prepare them for the transition to 11v11 football when the time comes.
