Harpenden Colts FC - Under 9 & 10

Welcome to Harpenden Colts Under 9 / 10 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. 

We run the age groups based on school year.
Under 9 caters for boys in year 4 at school
Under 10 caters for boys in year 5 at school

When do you train?

We train on a Saturday morning from 10.00 - 11.30 am

What equipment does he or she need?

Subscription fees include a Harpenden Colts shirt, shorts and socks for squad members. Players will not be allowed to train without shin pads.

Who will be coaching my child?

Colts is an entirely voluntary organisation. Your child will be coached by parents of children in the year group who have volunteered to help. This season we have enlisted help from Luton Town who will be providing coaches to support our volunteer coaches.

Do you play matches?

At Under 9 and 10 we enter squads into a non-competitive league (West Herts Youth League). Matches take place on a Sunday morning and are 7-a-side, lasting for two halves of 25 minutes. The scores are not published but are recorded by the League as per FA guidelines.

When does the season start and finish?

The season will start in early 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 Saturday 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.
