Club Ethos & Philosophy
At Camberley Town Youth F.C, we’ve thought a lot about what our ethos is and what we want for our young players. Children come to play for us because they want to be the next Harry Kane or Alex Scott, they want to wear an England shirt and score a goal in Wembley. We will always help your kids dream big, develop their football skills, hone talent but we also want the most important thing of all, we want your kids to LOVE football.
In the UK at the moment, there are 1.5 million kids involved in organised youth football. Approximately 180 of them will make it as Premier League professionals. It’s a sobering statistic and as such, we want to offer our services to the majority. How can we help your kids love the game? How can football change their lives for the better? How can we support young people in the community?
All our age groups are organised and run in different ways to account for the different levels of ability we have within the Club. We have teams who have gone on to win County Cups but also teams who play regularly and allow for kids to feel part of a team and enjoy regular sport.
All our coaches follow the FA Four Corner Model in how they teach football and develop our players. Links to this and all the FA educational materials that define our coaching practices can be found under Links and Downloads.
In time, some of our kids may go on to play at Wembley and nothing will fill us with more pride (box seats please!) However, we will be just as proud to see them play from Mini Kickers all the way through to U18 under the Camberley Town Youth banner. We want to witness young men and women have and keep football in their lives. We want them to gain lifelong friendships with their team mates, to learn from big wins and crashing defeats, to enjoy sport, keep fit and healthy and retain all the positives that come from being part of football.
