Welcome to Harpenden Colts U14 Homepage
Harpenden Colts caters for players of all abilities in Harpenden and the surrounding district who are keen on football. The only requirements are enthusiasm and a desire to improve.
What is the age range for Under 14s?
We run the age groups based on school year. Under 14s caters for boys in year 9 at school
When do you train?
Squads train mid-week evenings on the 3G pitch at Roundwood Park School.
How much does it cost?
Subscription fee for this season is £170.
What equipment does my child need?
A Harpenden Colts shirt, shorts & socks will be provided to squad members. Players will not be allowed to train without shin pads.
Who will be coaching my child?
Harpenden Colts is an entirely voluntary organisation. Your child will be coached by parents of children in the year group who have volunteered to help.
Do you play matches?
U14s enter squads into a league (West Herts Youth League). Matches take place on a Sunday morning and are 11-a-side. The scores are published as per FA guidelines.
When does the season start and finish?
The season will start towards the beginning of September and final training is typically early May. We will usually not organise training on bank holiday weekends but otherwise, subject to weather, play each Sunday throughout the season.
Can I be involved in the coaching?
Yes, we would encourage any parent who wishes to coach to get involved. Colts is run on an entirely voluntary basis so the success of each year group depends on the dedication of the parents who volunteer to help. No previous coaching experience is required and initially any new coach would be paired with an experienced coach for each session to help them integrate with the group. Colts encourages coaches to participate in FA coaching courses and the club will provide funding for some of these. All coaches will be DBS checked.
