East Coast Warriors F.C
East Coast Warriors is a youth football club based in North Norfolk that was founded in 2001 to provide football for young people in a safe environment.
East Coast Warriors
East Coast Warriors Football Club was founded in 2001 by a small group of parents that wanted a fun and safe environment for their children to learn to play football. There were only 6 children at the start. The Club’s ethos has not changed over many years it has been going. It is still a fun and safe environment for children to learn to play football. East Coast Warriors likes to give all young players a chance to develop their skills and get as much out of the club as possible. That is why one of the club rules is that all players get a minimum of one half of football during matches.
Young players develop skills at different levels and at different times, both physically and mentally. Most importantly, young children come to play a game of football with their friends: they learn social skills and enjoy themselves. It is therefore important that parents and coaches do not take the fun out of the experience by pushing them from an early age. Lots of young players give up football because of pressure from parents and coaches and that is a real shame. We must let the game be the teacher. Football, like many other walks of life, is a skill where you learn from your mistakes, and where positive encouragement helps build self – esteem and promotes learning.
Cheering from the sidelines is always welcomed at East Coast Warriors. Let’s all work together to make a fun and enjoyable place for our children to play!
The club has representatives in each age group, and also a Child Welfare Officer. If you have any problems at all, these people are available to help you and your child resolve them. This ensures that any form of bullying or child protection issues are appropriately acted upon.
We hope your children have a great time with us. Football is a game, let’s keep it that way and make it fun!
