At Rocklands YFC we believe football should be about:
Message from the Chairman
Rocklands Youth FC is a grass-roots, community-focused, FA Charter Standard-based Youth Football Club, providing football coaching for children in Rocklands and the surrounding areas. The club currently has a large number of registered players, with ages ranging from 4 to 18 years of age.
At a Grassroots level, the single most important outcome of youth football is the social development of every individual child. They make friends for life, develop communication skills, problem solving, working as a team and leadership attributes.
As a club, the health, safety and welfare of every child that participates in football are our first and most important priority. This is closely followed by our commitment to providing a happy and inclusive environment for children to learn and develop their football skills under the tutelage of experienced coaches, who are FA qualified and have the appropriate CRB child safety checks and emergency aid qualifications.
We strongly believe that football is a game to be played and enjoyed by everyone, and our success is measured not by the trophies we win, but by the number of children who choose to play for and remain at Rocklands YFC throughout their childhood. This is notwithstanding children whose natural progression may take them to higher levels of the game. Players who fall into this category can expect the full support and freedom from the club to pursue their ambitions, safe in the knowledge that they will be welcomed back at Rocklands YFC should they wish to return.
Our ethos is clear and underpins our mission: to be a safe, happy, open and inclusive football club that strives to provide the best overall football experience for your child.
(Rocklands YFC Chairman)
