The Selsdon Little League Bantams division is great for children of all abilities in school years 2,3 and 4. Here they get the opportunity to play competitive football in a safe and friendly environment that promotes fair-play and fun hand-in-hand with healthy competition. We truly are focused on the development of the player (socially, technically, physically and psychologically) and do not value the all too common ‘win at all costs’ mentality.
After registering players will be allocated to a squad of no more than 10 players and provided with the team shirt (all teams wear black shorts and socks which players provide). In this age group teams play 7-a-side football for the first time on appropriately sized pitches and 6' by 12' goals. Every player (when available) will play in every game with managers using a rolling substitute system to ensure all players get equal playing time throughout the season.
Managers and coaches will hold training sessions either mid-week or on Saturday mornings (before or after the teams match). In addition this season we are trying to arrange organised league wide training sessions during the week on all-weather pitches – to be run by experienced FA qualified coaches.
Every team will play in the same location each week – at 9.30am, 10.30am or 11.30am kick-off times. Each league match will have two 15 minute halves with a few minutes break in between for refreshment and motivation!
With their allocated team they will play a full 20 game league competition, as well as a knock out cup competition and a 5-a-side rules tournament every season.
At the end of each season players will be invited to attend an awards evening where each player will receive a trophy.
Selsdon Little League really is a fantastic way for kids and parents to make new friends and have fun and players to progress as footballers.
Everyone who joins is actively encouraged to get involved - whether as a player, a spectator (cheering on your team) or even becoming a manager!
New players are always welcome throughout the season so please contact us using the form below to register your interest.
