The Little Athletes Football Club was set up for the sole purpose of player development. Giving our children the opportunity to progress their development and to continue their interest in football on a more competitive level.​

How does L.A.F.C work?

If your child is still training in our soccer school when they hit their 6th birthday, they will then be given the opportunity to join one of our under 7's teams for the following season. This opportunity is completely optional so therefor should your child still enjoy the beautiful game and want to continue playing football in a more competitive environment, then this is a great opportunity to do so! 

L.A.F.C will give your child the platform to play in and train in a real football team environment with a small squad of players, where they will train once or twice per week and then play a competitive fixture on a weekend. 

Our U7's teams will compete in youth leagues across the city. 

Watching your little one pulling on a red Little Athletes shirt in a competitive fixture for the very first time is going to be an extra special moment for you, and US!

Am i eligible to join L.A.F.C ?

L.A.F.C squad places are only available to children who have graduated from our soccer school at the age of 6, this is to give our children a clear pathway and entry to league football. 

All of our teams are limited to 10-12 players. This is to allow equal playing time to all children within the squad. Although all matches played are 7 v 7, a bigger squad will compensate for when players are missing with illness, injury or holiday.

if your child is approaching 6 and you would like them to be apart of L.A.F.C next season then please register your interest with us at
