The primary objectives of the Junior Soccer activities at Hong Kong Football Club are to provide children with a fun and enjoyable experience while learning and improving their skills for the game. At the same time we aim to provide the opportunity for children to take part in competitive soccer games and to realise their full potential.
Participation in Junior Soccer at Hong Kong Football Club is open to children, boys and girls, of Hong Kong Football Club Members and non-Members and is organised in academic year groups, starting with Primary 2 and finishing at the end of Year 9. All participants must complete the Club's registration procedure and pay the required registration fee.
Junior Soccer coaching sessions are held on Saturday mornings from September to May with an average of 400 players and 45 coaches registered each year. The Junior Soccer coaches, often parents of the players, give their time freely and, in addition to coaching, also undertake the organisation and administration that is required, with the support of an administrative secretary.
There are also weekly coaching sessions for the coaches to improve their skills and we are always on the look out for new volunteers, the only qualification being enthusiasm.
Junior Soccer teams take part in several competitions internally and also represent the Club in competitive tournaments with other clubs and schools. Our Under 14 team won the inaugural Under 16 Hong Kong Football Association Cup. The Club also organises overseas tours for a number of teams.
