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.
