We have a thriving Mini's Football section which caters for boys and girls from reception year through to year 7. The club has excellent facilities and very enthusiastic trained coaches to give every child the best possible chance of enjoying their football. Mini’s sessions take place on Saturday mornings at our St Peters pitch from early September through till early May with a small break at Christmas.
Competitive league football does not start until Year 6 and 7 when club teams take part in the Corbet Cup league and the Corbet Cup Shield league. For Years 2 - 5 friendly tournaments take place every 4 weeks throughout the season. Reception & Year 1 are not permitted by English FA rules to take part in competitive football, but inter-club joint training sessions will be arranged from time to time.
All training sessions try to incorporate a variety of elements focusing on player development and teaching the core skills and techniques of football. We believe this concept will help improve players, regardless of their age, sex or ability. All sessions are delivered in a safe environment. Developing players for the future and providing football for the local community is what the Sylvans Mini’s is all about, all players new and old are welcome.
KICK OFF !
Our season kicks off the first Saturday following beginning of the Autumn School term, usually the first or second weekend in September. Minis will run every Saturday apart from a 2 week break at Christmas and 1 week at Easter until early May. Please follow us on Twitter for up to date details @SylvansMinis .
All groups will start at 10:00am and finish at 11:30am with the exception of Reception & Year 1 which will finish slightly earlier at 11:15am. All old and new players are welcome.
New players are free to come along and have a go on a trial basis to see if they like it. There is no obligation to pay subs until they are settled in, which we would normally expect to know a few weeks in.
Children are welcome from Reception year onwards. Please spread the word, the more the merrier.
