AN INTRODUCTION FOR NEW PLAYERS

Firstly, Welcome to Dorchester Town Youth Football Club!

We hope that everything has been explained to you already, however, if there any problems or questions you may have, please take a look at our helpful New Player Introduction.

DO I PAY WEEKLY FEES?

No. Unlike most football clubs, we do not charge fees on a week by week basis. Instead, invoices go out at two separate times of the year (usually July & January)

DO I NEED TO BE A GREAT FOOTBALLER?

Absolutely not! First things first, DTYFC is all about fun. The aim of the club is to produce a fun and safe environment for all children to enjoy learning the beautiful game. If you’re a complete novice, or a long term player, DTYFC will find the right fit for you and will try and help you improve to become the best player and person that you possibly can.

ARE THE COACHES QUALIFIED?

Yes! All of our managers hold at least a FA Level 1 coaching badge.

WILL I PLAY ON AN ADULT SIZED PITCH?

This depends on your age. From Under 7 until Under 10, you will play Mini-Soccer, which will be either 5 a side or 7 a side, on a small pitch. At Under 11, you will move to 9 a side, on a slightly bigger pitch. At Under 13, you progress to 11 a side.

CAN GIRLS PLAY?

Of course! We have a number of girls sides, covering all ages groups!

DOES WINNING MATTER AT ALL COSTS?

Absolutely not. Everybody loves to win, however it is not the be all and end all. As long as everybody enjoys themselves and develops as a player, that’s the most important thing.

If you have any other questions, please contact one of our helpful committee.
