Why Join Stockport Vikings?
FOOTBALL IS GOOD FOR YOU
Why should children play football? Throughout training one evening a week and playing matches, children will get plenty of healthy exercise and learn the basic skills that will make them into good players. Playing football also increases their co-ordination and balance. But it is the social effects you'll really notice. At Vikings, they can come along and play with their friends, but they will also make new friends and they'll be part of a team. Teamwork is at the heart of what we do. They learn to trust each other's strengths and they get recognition from the other players for their own hard work and skills. Being part of a football team really builds children's self-esteem and confidence. They learn to be sporting - learning to lose is as important as learning to win.
Vikings is a friendly, family football club with almost 230 players from ages 5 to 18. Yes, we want to win things, but not at all costs. We don't shout and scream at the kids and we don't tell the children that they're not good enough to play for us. If they come to training, then they'll play in the team. The club's values and goals are as follows:
To ensure children receive a fair chance, regardless of ability
To provide a positive learning environment in which children can develop their football skills
To ensure the children have fun, enjoy themselves and develop a love for football
To develop the social skills of the children
To develop the skills of the coaching staff on a continual basis
Experience shows that the teams we build still win trophies, but we win friends along the way and the kids play the game in the right way.
We're volunteer parents, but the club encourages us to develop our skills too. The coaches that will look after your children are fully FA Qualified. They're also trained in Emergency First Aid and Child Protection. Parents are encouraged to get involved and help - either on the training pitch, on match days or with the paperwork.
GIRLS & BOYS
Did you know that, in England, more girls play football than any other game? And, because it's the Number One sport of choice for girls, Vikings are keen to get more girls involved in the club. Up to the age of 10, girls and boys play in mixed teams (and the girls more than hold their own). From age 11, girls and boys play in separate teams.
