Ilchester Youth History

 

20 YEARS OF ILCHESTER YOUTH 

 

The First Ilchester Team 1995

What Ilchester Youth can offer you as a player

 

  1. The club aims to encourage children of all abilities to participate in football in a friendly and safe environment
  2. The club is well managed by a properly elected committee
  3. All team coaches are suitably qualified to teach children about football
  4. All team coaches have attended a Child Protection course and the club has a nominated Child Protection Officer
  5. All adults in charge of children have passed FA CRB checks
  6. Our club has clearly set out codes of conduct for behaviour of players, managers and spectators

 

Essentially the age group that a player joins is determined by his or her date of birth – this also mirrors the school year.
The key date is 31st August and the chart below shows which age group applies for next season.

FA rules do permit a child to “Play Up” a year (an under 9 can play for under 10’s) but under no circumstances can a child play for the age group below. As a club, Ilchester Youth  require that, for any player wishing to play up a year, a consensus of agreement is reached between both age group managers, the childs parents and, of course the child themselves. We always try to consider what is best for the child, taking into account factors such as ability and physical development.

 

 

Any further questions can be answered either by age group managers (see the teams section for contact details) or Terry Pitcher deandtp@sky.com Please have a look around, comment in our guest book, contact our Managers / Committee and most importantly let your children enjoy the football that we provide for Ilchester and the surrounding villages
