Chipperfield Corinthians Youth Football
The Chipperfield Corinthians cater for all boys from the ages of 6 to 18 and girls from the ages of 6 to 11. The aim is to have lots of fun playing and learning, as well as promoting self confidence, social interaction, team building, all in a safe environment.
The teams are organized by age group (currently 4 teams), with junior teams under the age of 10 consisting of 7 players, while the Under 11’s play 11 a side. Each team is run by a manager and a coach, which are CRB checked.
Coaching for the youngest teams is usually held on Saturday mornings and the older teams enjoy floodlit astro turf facilities at local schools during weekday evenings. Matches are played every Sunday during the football season (September to May), and the teams compete in either the Watford Friendly or West Herts Leagues. The teams are also entered into various Cup challenges and 5 a side tournaments at local venues.
A highlight of last season were the Chipperfield Corinthians U 18’s, who won the Watford Friendly League Yellow Division. The team won 14 out of 16 matches scoring an impressive 69 goals, while conceding only 26.
The players also receive individual medals and at the end of the season, each team holds a presentation night where accolades are awarded and special medals given to those players that have contributed the most to the team.
The cost of joining is £50 for the season (payable in two instalments in September & January). Match fees are then £2 per game played and there will be a need to buy a few personal kit items such as boots and shin guards. The team shirt will be provided by the Corinthians and so will all the training aids.
Why not get involved with the club and manage a youth team? It would require a couple of hours a week, liaising on occasions with the various leagues and organisations, arranging pitches etc, and would be suited to someone who not only has time to spare, but who would raise the profile of the Club within the community.
We are currently looking for boys and girls to come along and play football.
To all the Chipperfield Youth out there…get involved!
