Run entirely by parent volunteers, Dovery Football Club covers each year group from Reception through to Year 4.

Dovery is not an FA affiliated club.

 

Following the FA’s foundation phase DNA we aim to provide an enjoyable and memorable experience for young children.

Priority at this age is fun engagement and the mastery of both the body and the ball. In today’s modern game, children will play on smaller pitches, with less players and with the retreat line rule to encourage players to play through the thirds.

There is now a greater emphasis at all levels to retain and love the ball and you will see very few headers in the game of Mini Soccer.

Coaches use the time they have with players to maximise enjoyment and development of other skills, particularly the fundamentals of working with the ball in their hands and feet.

Focus should be on learning to master the ball and the body through fun activities.

We train on Saturdays at 9am to 10.30am for Year 1-4 and 9am-10am for Reception.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions
