Players Stories

YLPA are committed to making a player the best that they can be at whatever level of play and here are just a few of our current and past player’s and their stories.


What to expect

We welcome children from the ages of 4 to 16 years old. Advanced and Elite players will participate in a warm-up session followed by structured drills to practice technique before engaging in match play. These sessions are designed to help your child develop physically, tactically and technically.

Fun and development players will enjoy a fun and structured approach to the basics of the game working on drills and skills along with match play in a relaxed and non-pressured environment. We introduce the rules of the game and the principles of sportsmanship and the importance of working with a team to achieve the best outcome – and have fun too!

In the course of the taster session, our trained staff will evaluate your child and direct them to the most appropriate group to enable them to feel comfortable and confident. Sessions last one hour (90 minutes for Elite 11+ players ) and we ask parents to arrive 10 minutes before the session begins to allow for preliminary introductions etc…

What to wear

Please wear boots suitable for the playing surface, studs only on grass surfaces (if in doubt trainers or astro boots are perfect), shorts and t-shirt and knee-length socks with shin pads if you have them. We recommend wearing thermals underneath during colder winter months, and a fleece pullover which can be removed once you have warmed up. Please also bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.

If you wish to continue after the trial period, we can order team kit for you at special discounted prices.
