WHO WE ARE
Testlands Youth Football Club was established in 2016, with the backing of Southampton based organisation Testlands, which has led to creating a unique football club.
With the use of the Testlands Hub facilities and the fantastic support of Testlands MultiSPORT Coaching Ltd we are able to offer all teams under the club at one central hub, the opportunity to train and develop with FA qualified coaches.
With all that in mind and transparency high on the agenda, we believe we are creating a great club. A club that kids can develop in all aspects of their game, enjoy playing, competing & being part of our club. But most importantly being part of our fantastic community.
Making A Difference
MINI'S FOOTBALL SESSIONS
The Minis is the Foundation group of Testlands football club we aim to offer the youngest of children, typically 4-7 years old their first taste of football in a safe and friendly environment.
If children are to enjoy and take part in football they need to:
Take an active part in the game
Learn to play as a team
Understand the Laws
Develop football skills
Be able to take part whatever their ability
Testlands YFC sets out to meet those needs. It allows children to succeed and take part in something that is still recognisably football.
Our aims are;
To provide football to children of all ages and abilities, in a safe, fun and friendly environment.
To deliver age-appropriate coaching to support long-term player development.
To encourage all players to try their best and make the most of their abilities.
To offer a challenging but supportive environment where children can learn from their mistakes without undue pressure and anxiety.
To promote good behaviour and respect for others.
