West Bridgford Colts FC has been going since 1990 and has always encouraged children to join the club as soon as they start school, mini-Colts in its current hugely popular form started in 2008.
The first session saw 50 eager new Colts in attendance. As we kick off the 2016-17 season, we have some 300 players aged 4-8 passing through the mini-Colts gates every weekend.
This season’s timetable is as follows:
U5s (School year Reception):
Saturdays 10.00 – 11.00am
Sundays 9.00 – 10.00am
Spaces currently available for both
U6s (School year 1):

Mini Colts Girls
Sundays 9.00-10.00am and 10.00-11.00am
All girls from reception to years 1, 2, 3 and 4 are welcome to join us (girls also have the option of joining the above groups).
U5s, U6s and mini-Colts girls’ sessions all take place at Nottingham Football Centre behind Rushcliffe School/Leisure Centre. U7s and U8s venues will vary.
Courtesy of Score Coaching we have a team of highly qualified coaches (all FA Level 1 minimum but mostly FA Level 2 and above, and all very experienced at coaching children of this age) co-ordinating the sessions, all of whom are also DBS checked / first aid & safeguarding trained.
As well as coaching the children, they also mentor the volunteer parents who step forward to help – these volunteers, who will run the WBC teams as the children get older, are the lifeblood of the club.
If your child is interested in joining mini-Colts, please contact Nick via email firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s name, date of birth and whether you have a preference for Saturdays or Sundays (subject to availability).
