COMMUNITY

The Community is at the heart of everything we do at Saints Southwest. From Community Football sessions, Multi-Sport camps, school fetes to fundraising. We are always looking at ways to develop and improve the communities we all live in. 

What underpins our Community programmes?

1. FUN - With the main priority being that young people are engaged in making our Community sessions FUN is vital to ensure every person enjoys their first and every experience.

2. EDUCATION - Our sessions help to develop young brains, with number counting, colour recognition, memory games and many more types consistently involved in our sessions. We also ensure young people understand our values to ensure they continue to flourish on and off the pitch.

3. HEALTH & WELLBEING - With obesity and cases of mental health in young people, we encourage young people to lead a healthy and active lifestyle throughout our Community sessions, stressing how important early fitness is to give your child the best possible start in life.

FAQ's

Community

What should my child wear?


We ask that all children are dressed ready for sport and appropriately for the weather. Shorts, t-shirts and football socks are recommended, but tracksuit bottoms and tops are also suitable. Shin pads are essential, your child may not be able to take part in some (or all) of the activities if they do not bring shin pads. In cold weather, we recommend layers, so that your child can take off/put on extra layers if they get too hot or cold. If your child would like to purchase a Saints Southwest Kit, you can do so by clicking here.




Can I stay to watch my childs session?


We do allow parents to stay and watch the sessions, should they wish. Parents are also very welcome to sign their child in and leave them with us for the duration of the session if they prefer. Please bear in mind some of our venues they have viewing platforms, please could you view the session from this area.




What footwear should my child bring?


For sessions that take place on grass, we recommend football boots during the winter months, although Astroturf or moulded boots may be sufficient during the summer months. For courses that take place on 3G Astroturf or synthetic grass pitches, we recommend Astroturf trainers or moulded boots, but NO metal studs. For sessions that take place in a sports hall please wear suitable trainers or Astro Turfs.




Do I have to pay for the full term?


Yes, this secures your place for the term, you will have to book on for a new term once the term has ended. We do offer a FREE trial for all children wanting to join for the first time, which can be booked here




Do you do any discounts?


Yes, we offer discounts. We offer sibling discount, to gain access to this please ring the office on 0330 2234 932. Saints Southwest also run various promotions throughout the year. We also have a Financial Support Programme in palace for those in less fortunate situations, which can be applied for here




What is the ratio of coaches to children?


Ratios differ depending on the type of session delivered; Soccer Tots (2-4 years) = 1:12 Mini Saints (4-6 years) = 1:14 Soccer Centres (7-11 years) = 1:16




Can I have a trial or taster session?


We currently offer taster sessions on all our Community sessions. Free trials and taster session cna be booked here.




What happens if it rains?


We will endeavour to keep the children playing football for as long as possible during all of our courses. If our coaches deem the weather too wet or dangerous to play safely then contingencies are put in place at each venue to move inside and take part in indoor, or sheltered activities. It is worth noting that the small number of venues that do not have indoor facilities to cater for indoor football, then these activities may include quizzes, competitions or other such football-themed games.
