What: Our Under Eights train weekly and play matches against other clubs at least once per term

Matches: Participation for all. We do our best to ensure every player receives equal invites to match days. At this age teams are not picked based on performance, we instead pick teams based on school year groups; this is so we hopefully guarantee players are playing with peers. We stretch high performing players with additional content.
