SOCCER SCHOOL

CCYFC SOCCER SCHOOL

When we founded the Soccer School over a decade ago we did so with the philosophy of wanting to see as many young children as adults playing football, learning by having fun and always wanting to come back for more. That philosophy has not changed, but the way the Soccer School has developed means it looks very different to when we started. Back then our first year saw 30 Reception and Year 1 boys which has now transformed into over 100 Reception, Year 1, and Year 2 boys and girls congregating at Chorleywood House on a Saturday morning. We can always take more and will always adjust to accommodate more numbers.

In line with our philosophy we are looking to grow the children’s desire to play football so that we can then progress them into playing squads within the main club. We see a successful Soccer School as essential for the health of the club both in terms of its footballing reputation, but also for its place in the wider Chorleywood community. To emphasise that spirit many of the current coaches began their footballing journey as young boys in the Soccer School and many ex-Soccer School children still play at the club right into the under 18 age groups.


As we continue to grow the numbers strongly in all sessions, but particularly in the girls sessions due to the rise in popularity of girls football, we will always accommodate more participants. Building on that success we are also launching a new midweek session for older girls which will run alongside our core Saturday morning sessions.


Led by Tommy Muckell and his son Harley and supported by the Soccer School founder Russell Hallam and the rest of the team, we look forward to hearing from you and welcoming your children to the Soccer School and becoming part of our CCYFC.

NEW FROM SEPTEMBER 2021 – Girls after school/early evening session

In order to meet what we see as a need to make football available to girls who are slightly too old for Soccer School, but want to learn to play, we are launching this session on a Thursday evening from 6pm to 7pm. This session will run on the new St. Clement Danes Astroturf and will accommodate girls in years 3-6 and in years 7-9.
