DARTFORD FOOTBALL CLUB JUNIORS (4-21)

Dartford Juniors Website www.pitchero.com/clubs/dartfordfcjuniors/

 

Mini Soccer School

Our mini soccer school operates on a pay and play basis meeting every Saturday during the football season – September to May.  Our sessions consist of fun based learning of all aspects of football including:

  • Passing
  • Dribbling (close ball skills)
  • Shooting
  • 1v1 skills
  • Team work

Our aim is to nurture the interest and love of football in boys and girls aged 4-6 (reception- Yr1 only) with the option of joining a Dartford Junior Section team when they reach the appropriate age group.  At intervals during the season, there may be opportunities for players to get involved with tournaments and competitions giving them practical experience of playing in a team.

The coaches who run our Mini Soccer School come from our own Junior Section and are CRB checked, hold FA Safeguarding Children qualifications, First Aid badges and are trained to FA Level 1 standard.

Our Mini Soccer School is run on the 3G mini all weather pitches which is a great surface for children to learn and develop their footballing skills.  All we ask of players is that they attend wearing suitable clothing including shin pads, appropriate football boots or trainers with no metal studs or blades, a drink and of course the desire to have fun.

Parents or guardians are required to remain on the side of the pitch during the sessions and under no circumstances should they leave the ground.

Where: Princes Park Mini Pitches
When: Weekly starting 3rd Saturday in September and every week thereafter until last Saturday in May 10am – 11am (Weather permitting and unless otherwise stated)
Cost: £2 each week

We are always looking for volunteers to help with the Mini Soccer School particularly anyone who would be interested in taking forward the management of a team.  Further information on this can be obtained from Martyn Wilson or Warren Bull who run the sessions each week.  Volunteers will be required to complete a CRB check before running sessions unsupervised.

Dartford Junior Section

Dartford Football Club runs a thriving and successful Junior Section with teams ranging from U 7 through to U21’s. The Junior Section is completely self-funding and all those involved are volunteers, including managers and coaches.

The aim of the Junior Section is to provide adequate facilities for training and matches, arrange matches and social events for the members and the surrounding community, provide a competitive, friendly standard of football for boys and girls aged 7-21 at the cheapest possible price and to promote the game of ‘association football’.

The club holds the prestigious FA Charter Standard status and has been awarded one of the highest levels possible that of a Development Club.

All our Junior Team Managers and Coaches are CRB checked,  qualified to a minimum of FA Level 1 with some going on to achieve  FA Level 2. Each team has at least 1 Coach and/or Manager that has attended the FA Safeguarding Children & 1st Aid Workshops.  The Child Welfare Officer and Committee members regularly carry out checks to ensure that managers and coaches adhere to the rules of the club.  These include ensuring the safety of the children whilst in their care and carry out spot checks at matches to ensure managers have a full first aid kit.

The Junior Section is affiliated to the Kent Country FA and a member of the Selkent League.  Further details of our latest results and forthcoming fixtures are available on www.selkent.org.uk/

We are proud to play our home fixtures in the borough of Dartford and remain very close to Princes Park which is the home of Dartford FC. We have been affiliated to Dartford Science and Technology College since 2016 for our home games on grass pitches and are proud to be further extending our links within the Dartford community.

U7- U10 teams play their home games at Princes Park on 3G all weather pitches.

U11- U21 teams play their home games at Dartford Science and Technology College, Heath Lane, Dartford.

History of our club

The Dartford FC Junior Section was originally formed in 1990 as St Vincent Vikings FC.

In the early days, the younger teams played in the Gravesend Primary League. A team from U11’s played in the Bexley & District Junior Football League.

We have been members of the Selkent league since the 2002/03 season when our under our U7’s team participated in the competitions for the first time

 

May 2003 was an important landmark in our history when, to the delight of all those involved, the club became affiliated to Dartford Football Club.

In order to retain a link to its roots, the Junior Section initially played under the name of Dartford Vikings but in the interest of building stronger links with Dartford FC from the start of the 2006/2007 season we took the name Dartford FC

 

At the time, the deal moved Dartford Football Club a step closer to gaining FA Charter Standard status and was a crucial part of the club gaining the backing which enabled its return to the Borough of Dartford.

These are exciting times for the section.
