Youth Team

The Forest Green Rovers Youth experience is tailored to help produce our own locally based players for our football club. We provide great facilities, licensed coaches and a hard-working support network which makes sure that players participate in a fun, friendly and stimulating environment where they can fulfil their potential.

The coaching staff and officials of Forest Green Rovers understand that children participate in football to have fun. We never forget that the game of football is just that - a game. It’s not about how many wins and losses are accumulated. And, it is surely not about how many trophies are collected. It’s not about how many goals we score or concede. It’s all about enjoying the game and, at the same time, learning and developing football and life skills.

All players will be a part of a player pathway from U7 all the way to U18 football in a safe, professional environment. Players will receive coaching and a suitable fixture programme from fully qualified, experienced and knowledgeable coaches.

Our ethos believes that players should participate in age appropriate activities so they are able to experience, comprehend, and execute the game as it relates to where they are at their own stage of physical, social, technical and psychological development.

  • Our U7’s is about learning the basics and skills of football and train on a Saturday morning
  • The U8’s to U11’s play in the North Wilts Youth and Minor League.
  • The U12’s – U16’s play in the Junior Premier League.
  • The U18’s play in the College and South West Counties Leagues
