Warwick Wanderers coach girls and boys of ALL footballing abilities. So if you've never played but you want to come and have a go you'll be made very welcome. Training in the early years is non-competitive and all football at the club up until 18 a side is of mixed gender. You will benefit from qualified instruction using the latest soccer methodologies. Regulated by The FA (The Football Association), all Warwick Wanderers players learn individual skills and personal development as well as collective team development.
Football is about having fun and enjoying regular exercise. Helping players develop will also help to build self-confidence. We, as coaches, believe that everyone can benefit from playing the game and making new friends.

Training is held every week during term time, starting at 6pm sharp on the football pitches at Downagate Community Centre. Please try to be with us on time as the warm-up is an important part of the session. We aim to finish at around 7pm.
We try to ensure that every player has as many touches of the ball as possible during the session and MOST IMPORTANTLY we want the kids to have FUN! We usually start with a football-based warm-up and then break out into a number of skills sessions aimed at developing technical skills and also ABCs (Agility, Balance and Coordination). In-between or after the skills sessions we try to play 'matches' and our aim is to make these small-sided games so the players have more touches of the ball.
What to wear/bring
Players should wear suitable shirts, shorts, socks (usually Replica Kit) and football boots on training days with warm clothing depending on weather conditions. Players are expected to wear clean studded boots (moulded or screw-ins depending on the hardness of the ground) and the club recommends 'NO BLADES' due to the potential dangers associated with them so please bear this in mind. SHIN PADS are compulsory. Please also bring a soft drink (NOT FIZZY) and a small snack for your child as there will be regular breaks for refreshments.
Important Note to Parents
The U6s training is not a 'drop and run' so we ask that parents or guardians remain on the field during the session and encourage the players at every opportunity.
