FOUNDATION LEVEL

Saturday Football Development Centre:

We operate 3 Saturday programmes: – Leyton Active Minis & Wildcats from the age of 3 – 6 years, Leyton Active Juniors & Wildcats for girls aged 7 to 11  and Leyton Active Seniors for secondary aged children aged 11 to 17 years.

During the football season, new players wishing to join AFC Leyton should attend the Saturday morning development sessions.  From there, players can move to both the Development or League Teams outside of our annual trials.  If you are joining AFC Leyton at the end of season or moving from another club to AFC Leyton, new players can attend our new player trial sessions and/or attend the development sessions for assessment.

The first 2 sessions are completely free!  After that monthly payments are required from as little as £16 per month cancel anytime.    These are fun sessions, that have a good balance of skills training and exercise and are open to girls aged between 3 to 17 years.
