Welcome to Mytchett Athletic Football Club. It is my pleasure and privilege to be Chairman and a coach of what I believe to be a fantastic grassroots football club. Mytchett Athletic FC was founded in 1971 and now boasts more than 350 playing members, aged from as young as 4 right up to and beyond 40. The aim of the club is to promote football in the local community to both boys and girls.
As a club, the health, safety and welfare of every child is our first and most important priority. This is closely followed by our commitment to providing a happy and inclusive environment for children to learn and develop their football skills. All of our coaches are FA qualified, CRC-checked, and trained in First Aid and Safeguarding.
Our volunteers are important to us. Clubs like ours cannot run without the support and hard work of coaches and parents. We are grateful for the time and commitment our volunteers put into the running of the club and organising football for the children. We are always on the lookout for new volunteers to help with coaching or the administration or the many other ways you can help. So thank you to all our volunteers and sponsors without whom we couldn’t function.
Our club is open to all players regardless of gender, race, nationality, ethnicity, colour, religion, sexual orientation or perceived ability as a footballer. We adhere to The FA Respect Codes of Conduct and value sportsmanship, fair play, respect and positivity.
Please remember, it’s a game, the coaches are volunteers and the players are children who always try their best and learn more every time they play – positive encouragement always works best for the individual and the team.
