Documentation

The Club has a formal constitution and Codes of Conduct for players, coaches, parents/spectators and team officials, in line with good practice recommended by the Football Association. All of our managers and coaches are required to receive training from the Dorset County Football Association in the various aspects of youth football coaching, which includes child protection.

The Club welcomes players of all abilities in our new Football Development Center, which is aimed at providing additional high standard coaching and support for those who are keen to further improve their technique and skills in the sport.

If you wish to enquire about joining the club, please contact Lloyd Spracklen – lloyddtyfc@yahoo.co.uk for more details.

Join Dorchester Town Youth FC

Dorchester Town Youth FC prides itself on high quality, safe coaching for all your budding stars. We would be delighted to hear from you if you want your child to be part of an ever growing Dorchester Town Youth football club.

Joining any club involves commitment! But it’s not all work, when you join clubs you meet many others who share the same interest. In this case is football! You’ll meet new friends, school friends; you may even meet some famous footballers and, maybe, become famous yourself! With top class folks to coach and support you’re every tackle and goal.

Experience

All our coaches are experienced at both grassroots and academy level. We have the ability to make sessions challenging and fun ensuring every child improves and develops.

Progression

Unlike most soccer centres, we offer routes into junior football for both boys and girls in the local area and provide a clear pathway to maybe one day play in the Dorchester Town FC first team.

Value

We operate mainly outside working hours to allow you to drop off and pick up your child. For the service we offer, we believe our customers receive fantastic value for money.
