Parents Information

ABOUT US

  • We are York and District Football representative sides U11s to U15s.
  • All players must attend a school which is in the district of York, Selby or Tadcaster.
  • We play football on Saturday mornings at York University Playing Fields – Heslington.
  • Games are in term time most Saturday mornings.
  • We play against other districts in the Yorkshire region – occasionally further afield.
  • Our coaches are volunteers – some who work in Education – many who are parents.
  • All our coaches have DBS and have FA level 1 certificates.
  • We have a child welfare officer and we take safeguarding young players seriously.
  • We have a committee of volunteers who also ensure we continue to be self-funded and help us organise matches.
  • We are supported by Total Sport – who are a sports provider in the York area.
  • We tend not to train midweek due to the commitments of players with other local clubs and sometimes academies.
  • Players are allowed to play for other clubs on Sundays and for school midweek.
  • Players are invited to trials by schools. So, if parents are very keen for their child to attend trials it is best to speak to their school.
  • Trials happen in June/September and are at York College. All communication is via the website.
  • All kit is provided for players although we do have teamwear which can be bought from Keal Teamwear – Walmgate. You will see a link to an order form below.
  • There are additional policies on things such as code of conduct, values and aims which we ask parents to read. Links below.
  • We are self-funded. We require players to attend an annual supermarket bag pack for several hours on the Sunday before Christmas.
