               Westerham Junior Football Club provides football coaching and matches for 5-18 year olds and ran 19 League teams, 2 non-league teams and 2 Colts teams in 2013-2014. WJFC is affiliated to the Kent County FA and to Westerham Sports Association (WSA), a private members club, which is based at King George’s Playing Fields. We are fortunate to enjoy fantastic playing facilities as well as the use of a clubhouse and our own floodlit training.

 

               The Club was officially formed in 2007 after previously being the Junior section for many years at Westerham Football Club which dates back to 1888. The Junior Club has thrived in the last few years and the commitment and passion of local volunteers has unified the Westerham and district community and grown the playing membership from 40 to over 300 and the Club has been successful in forging links with local schools and other community groups.

               The season 2006/2007 saw Westerham Junior Football Club achieve FA Charter Standard status. The Charter Standard Scheme is the best practice guide that sets standards of coaching, administration and child protection for clubs working with young people. As a benchmark for quality, it improves the playing experience for all.

               Over 95% of the volunteer coaches have official FA qualification coaching badges (23 of them) and most have voluntarily undergone First Aid and Safeguarding Children courses. In June 2014 the Club was the proud recipient of the Tandridge Youth Football League Club Sportsmanship Award for an unprecedented fourth successive year and our nine team awards takes our total to 39 in just nine seasons!

 

What are the aims, objectives and activities of WJFC?

               Westerham Junior Football Club is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable learning environment for young children and youths to participate in Association Football. The Club is committed to ensuring that the player is central to all developmental needs and aspirations, to providing quality experiences for all players and we are committed to follow FA guidelines about Safeguarding Children best practice. The Club is committed to the FA’s policy on equity, anti-discrimination and equal opportunities and implements a democratic, fair and effective Club Constitution and Procedures as well as endorsing a Code of Conduct for Coaches/Managers, Players, Officials, Parents and Spectators.

               The main activities of the Club are the coaching of football and participation in organised matches, both in friendlies and FA affiliated Leagues and Tournaments.

 

What are the achievements of WJFC?

               In addition to the many achievements highlighted above regarding the FA Charter Standard, growth of participation, coaching standards and levels of Sportsmanship the Club has also had great success on the field as well.
