APYFC 2018/19 Season

Alexandra Park Youth FC is an FA Charter Standard clubwith over 30 teams and 400 players ranging from U8s to U18s. Most of these players are boys. The 2013/14 season, however, saw  the club initiated a girls’ sectionwhich plays on Saturdays in the CAPITAL GIRLS LEAGUE. Last season the club fielded one team at U10, one at U11 two at U12, one at U14 and at U16. This season we are  hoping field teams at U9, U10, U11, U13, U15 and U17 ( at the  time of writing). The prime aim of the club is to provide a positive footballing experience to all those girls who wish to play football, regardless of ability or experience.

Teams are run by volunteer parents and require:

  • a manager and assistant manager per team, one of whom must be present at the games.

This is mandatory for starting a team.

· a manager or assistant is also required – at the earliest convenient moment and at the club’s expense - to complete an FA Level 1 qualification (with Emergency Aid and Safeguarding Children certificates included) . Qualified teachers can achieve this with an FA fast track qualification.

· the manager and assistant must also undergo DBS* checks (*DBS checks have to be done by the club. Other checks are not transferable).

· each new team must also supply a volunteer for the main club to help in its running. It can be anything from chairperson and treasurer to helping out at the annual club 5 a-side competition.

Each team has a squad of players, usually enough to field a team with substitute/s and allow for injuries and unavailability. The maximum squad size is usually double that of the team size (e.g. U11s play 7 a-side and can have a squad of 14 players, though only 5 substitutes can be used per game)

Each team has an FA qualified coach, one training session per week (a minimum of 1 hour in length : from October at a floodlit venue) and one game, either in the league or cup where applicable. The FA have phased out leagues for younger age groups so they play regular competitive friendlies without officially recording or publishing results. But they do have cup competitions.

All the above requires commitment not only from the players but also their parent/guardians for the team to function effectively and fulfil its commitments for the season. For those who enjoy the sport there is much to be gained from the experience as a player and as an adult!

*Membership, Subscriptions and new kit

Annual membership and subscription 2018/19is £300 for the season  (cheques payable to: APYFC)

Methods of payment:

  • Full payment of £300 in advance covering membership, registration and subscription;
  • £90 payment for membership and registration fee and three post dated chequesfor £70 each dated 30 September, 30 November  (2018) and 31 January (2019) supplied with application.
  • Or direct bank transfer. Bank details for the club provided on request.

*The club’s preferred option is for full payment as this cuts down on administration.The initial membership and registration fee secures the squad place and ensures the club has adequate funds to pay for kit. No registrationwill be accepted without post-dated cheque payments or an alternative agreement having been agreed (see Financial Hardship below). PLEASE NOTE: The yearly subscriptions also cover the cost of qualified coaches, winter training venues, referees, match pitches and entrance fees to cups.

All newplayers will receive a full kit: orange shirt, black shorts and pair of socks and training jacket.

*Registration for 2018/19 season

By signing for APYFCbecoming a member of the club you are signing up to the Rules and Regulationsof the club. These are posted on the website and you should read the rules before signing

**Financial Hardship

APYFChave a club policy enshrined in our constitution that ensures that no player, whose family is genuinely unable to meet the cost of club and match fees, will be restricted from being a member of the club. The player’s parents or guardians can discuss this with their Team Manager or  directly with the Club Treasurer (findais@yahoo.co.uk) and if necessary agree to either an alternative payment method or reduced payment plan.

CAPITAL GIRLS LEAGUE (CGL) PLAYER & TEAM REGISTRATION:

· e-mail copies of photos and of birth Certificates or passports to the manager by 31stJuly2018

· TEAMS CAN ONLY BE REGISTERED WITH ENOUGH PLAYERS TO FORM ATEAM(e.g. 5 for a 5 a-side team, 7 for a 7 a-side team etc). But the more of the squad that signs up in one go the less likely the team is to be short of players for the first game... Everyone goes on holiday, even those people who register the players... BEWARE!!!
