Some hard work behind the scenes means Taunton Juniors have officially become a part of the Community Trust extending the age range we cover in the community from 4 to16.
All of the weekly football sessions will remain the same, and the entire programme will run under the management of Head of Football, UEFA ‘A’ License Coach, Ian Thompson, whose knowledge and passion will only improve and increase the opportunity for the young players of Taunton. Many familiar faces, such as Paul West and Chris Grave, will still be a part of the coaching staff as you have seen since the beginning of September 2020. And to add to this, many former academy coaches, all holding their ‘B’ License, have also joined the coaching team in recent months, adding to the already high standard of coaching.
All social media use will now be via the Community Trust pages, so please give them a ‘like’ and ‘follow’ to stay up to date!
If you would like more information relating to football training for your child commencing from the age of four, please:
For the 2020 / 21 season fees remain unchanged and will be £450 for match squad players and £200 for the training group.
The cost is split over 10 monthly payments, payable on the first day of each month commencing in August. This means the last payment will be made 1 May 2020.
When setting up your payment please use the following ref: Age group - Surname - Initial, e.g. U15-Smith-J
The account to pay into is as follows:
Account name: Taunton Youth FC Community Trust
Account number: 15146685
Sort code: 60-05-06
It is important here to remind everyone that the trust is a not for profit organisation. We will keep revenue under constant review, and if at any point in the future we build a surplus this will be reinvested in the programme or used to lower the fees again. As a charity, our annual accounts have to be published meaning that there will always be transparency.
For new joiners we do offer a cooling off period so that players have the opportunity to work with the coaches. If a player decides they want to leave, as long as notice is given prior to the 30th September, there is no penalty. However, once you have committed to the programme and you or your child decides to leave after the 30th September, then two months advance notice is required. This means, for example, if your son/daughter wishes to finish at the end of March, you will need to give us notice in writing or email by the end of January. You will then be required to pay all fees due up to the end of March.
If a player has a long term injury, then monthly payments are still due, however an assessment will be made at the end of the season and dispensation given if a large amount of play / training has been missed. ie. Player breaks a leg and is off for eight weeks, April's and May's payment will not be required.
The purpose of Taunton Youth FC Community Trust is to advance amateur sport and promote community participation in healthy recreation through the provision of sports coaching and access to facilities for football players in school years 4-16 who live in and around Taunton.
Any child of qualifying age, regardless of footballing ability, is welcome to come and train with us (subject to club capacity).
The programme was granted Charitable Status in January 2019, We are therefore officially Taunton Youth FC Community Trust. The charity number is 1181212.
Taunton Youth FC Community Trust was awarded The FA Standard Charter in April 2020
