Under 9’s


AFC Worthing Youth Under 9’s Football Team

It’s a precious, special time working with Under 9’s players. They’re just starting on their football journey: they’re stronger, faster and more co-ordinated than younger players, but still have much to learn about movement, positional sense, teamwork and technique.

That’s what we aim to give them. As a coaching staff, we work with our young players to develop their awareness and their skills, foster a culture of team-orientated dedication and discipline and ensure that they’re always able to express their natural enthusiasm for the game. We focus not on results, but on attitude and application. As the great Danny Blanchflower put it, ”Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to win is”.

It is important to remember Under 9’s football is non-competitive (FA regulations) – teams are 7-a-side.
