Junior Coaching

OWE Junior Academy

Ormskirk West End FC offers football coaching for current reception and year 1 boys and girls. The sessions are run by a highly experienced FA licensed qualified coaches providing a safe and fun environment. Each session will involve fun games and activities which give a great introduction to football. All the children require is suitable footwear, shin pads and a drink. We will provide everything else.

Club statement 9th February 2024 - Mini shin pads

With the increasing popularity of “mini” shin pads, OWE FC has taken the decision to ban them.  Any child turning up to training or a match without full size shin pads will not be allowed to play.  The primary and obvious reason being we don’t believe they offer children a sufficiently reasonable degree of protection. Also, referees have the right to stop a child from playing if they don’t believe they have adequate protection.  We are aware that this ban will be difficult for the club to enforce and will be reliant upon our managers and coaches to implement it. If you have any questions, please contact your team manager in the first instance. You can also contact the club chairman or either of the club welfare officers for more information. Contact details are on the club website.

I hope you can all support this and thank you for your understanding.

Ormskirk West End FC supporting Play Safe

Ormskirk West End FC is lending its full support to Play Safe – a national FA-led campaign to raise awareness of the importance of safeguarding in football.Play Safe is being run in partnership with the NSPCC and has the full backing of the Premier League, EFL, Barclays FA Women’s Super League and the FA Women’s Championship. It’s also supported and being run across every other level of the game

The main element of Play Safe is a series of short films which emphasise the importance of clubs such as ours having safeguarding as an everyday reality. The films also explain to parents/carers and children themselves know what to do if they feel unsafe or worried, because nothing matters more than making sure football is safe for everyone, especially children and young people. You can see these films here.
