Mini-Colts

West Bridgford Colts FC has been going since 1990 and has always encouraged children to join the club as soon as they start school.  Mini-Colts in its current hugely popular form started in 2008.

The first session saw 50 eager new Colts in attendance. As we kick off the 2017-18 season, we have some 300 players aged 4-8 passing through the mini-Colts gates every weekend.

Venues
U5s, U6s and mini-Colts girls’ sessions all take place at Nottingham Football Centre behind Rushcliffe School/Leisure Centre.

U7s matches are predominantly at Nottingham Football Centre; week night training takes place at various venues around West Bridgford.

U8s matches are predominantly at Regatta Way; week night training takes place at various venues around West Bridgford.

Coaches
Courtesy of Score Coaching we have a team of highly qualified coaches (all FA Level 1 minimum but mostly FA Level 2 and above, and all very experienced at coaching children of this age) co-ordinating the sessions, all of whom are also DBS checked / first aid & safeguarding trained.

As well as coaching the children, they also mentor the volunteer parents who step forward to help – these volunteers, who will run the WBC teams as the children get older, are the lifeblood of the club.

If your child is interested in joining mini-Colts, please contact Nick via email nick@goalfood.com with your child’s name, date of birth and whether you have a preference for Saturdays or Sundays (subject to availability).
