DUNMOW ROVERS YOUTH FOOTBALL CLUB

New website under construction

It is the aim of Dunmow Rovers Youth Football Club to promote a safe environment for children to learn, develop and enjoy playing youth football in the community. 

We are based at The Recreation Ground in the centre of Dunmow. The committee and coaches work hard to provide football to those who want to play. We encourage football for children of all ages and abilities. Football is a great way to make new friends, learn to work as a team and basically have fun.

We are always looking for new players, coaches and people who want to get involved in a very successful football club.

Whilst our new website is developed the main Club Contacts are below for your convenience.

Dunmow Rovers Youth Football Club has teams consisting of Mini Soccer, starting from under 6 to under 10’s. Junior from under 11 to under 18’s.

All of the club’s teams play in the Blackwater & Dengie Youth League in Essex. Our Under 7 and 8’s play in a 5v5 format whilst the U9 and U10 age groups play in a 7v7 format. These are small sided non competitive games against other age
related teams from the Blackwater and Dengie league with the emphasis on having more ball time, how to play the game, learning fundamental football skills, and most importantly having fun.

At the U11 & U12’s age groups level the teams play a 9-a-side format. The game is aimed at representing their growth from U10’s and younger, but with an outlook of making sure the game, pitch & goals are relative to their size. From U13’s upwards the teams go into the full 11-a-side format.

Additionally, we deliver coaching sessions on Saturday mornings known as “Mini Strikers” for children aged between 4 and 6 years of age.

Mini Strikers was formed in November 2011, offering special FA qualified coaching to introduce children into learning the FUNdamentals of football while having fun, meeting new friends and all FREE of charge!!

There is no obligation to join just bring your child along and see if they enjoy it, if so, bring them along each week during the season and hopefully their football journey begins with “The Rovers”.
