Youth Engagement Solutions’ (YES) School Football Programme was one of the first services offered by the charity, after it was started by players from Cricklewood Wanderers FC (CWFC).
Under the Cricklewood Wanderers FC brand, we currently supply coaches and management for 5 school teams at Quintin Kynaston Academy in Swiss Cottage. Our coaches spend time at the school, engaging with students and with teaching staff; as well as doing what they best, coaching football! Our second year at the school, some of the players are really developing well and may enter the CWFC youth set up next season.
All 5 teams play weekly in the Camden & Regent’s Park Youth League, in addition to a session at their with their CWFC coach.
Our most successful side was the QK U12s, who completed a 2016/17 league and cup double.
We will be continuing to work with Quitin Kynaston Academy next season, and currently have capacity to take on further teams.
YES/CWFC coaches have all passed their FA level 1 coaching badge, as well as passing additional courses in safeguarding, first aid and some have completed FA level 2. Several of them have come through the ranks as players with Cricklewood Wanderers FC senior teams.
