An Introduction

Originally formed in 1984 as Cosmos Boys Football Club, Dorchester Town Youth now provide football training and competitive football matches for boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 18, with an emphasis, particularly in the early years, on participation and enjoyment. We rely almost entirely on the parents of our players who give generously of their time and effort in coaching, managing teams, refereeing, fund raising activities and carrying out the organisational activities which are performed by the working committee. DTYFC is made up of professional coachers, referees and sponsors.

All our coaches are FA qualified, CRB cleared and first aid qualified. In addition, all actively coach or play at a high level so don’t hesitate and contact one of our reception coaches below for all the information you need in getting your child signed up.

Code of Conduct

The Club has a formal constitution and Codes of Conduct for players, coaches, parents/spectators and team officials, in line with good practice recommended by the Football Association. All of our managers and coaches are required to receive training from the Dorset County Football Association in the various aspects of youth football coaching, which includes child protection.

The Club welcomes players of all abilities and this season sees the introduction of our new Football Development Centre as part of the newly launched academy set-up, which is aimed at providing additional high standard coaching and support for those who are keen to further improve their technique and skills in the sport.
