Mini-soccer at Wideopen Juniors

The mini-soccer section at Wideopen Football Club is thriving. More information is available HERE.

Soccer Skills Sessions
Soccer Skills at Wideopen FC forms a strong base to the entire club. Many of our players start here and go right through the junior section and on to play senior football at Wideopen. Quite a large number of our mini-soccer players (7-10 years olds) benefit from coaching at Soccer Skills as well as with their team coach.

During the Summer, Soccer Skills sessions are 6-7 on Monday nights at Lockey Park. There is also a session between 9:30 and 10:30 on Saturdays at Lockey Park. Three groups for 5-6 year olds; 7-8 year olds and 9-10 year olds. Everyone welcome.
They are held at Seaton Burn College during the winter (mid-September to mid-March).
Players from 5 - 11 are welcome (mini soccer and younger) to get skills coaching that will benefit them in a game.

WIdeopen Football Club (junior and senior teams) is a family club whose first interests are those of our members. The Managers, Coaches and Committee are a team off the pitch. Each age group is encouraged to work as a team on the pitch. Inevitably, the whole issue of football comes first and foremost and we aim to ensure that it is an enjoyable experience for the youngsters who represent Wideopen FC week in, week out, in all weathers. We continually strive for better standards in coaching qualifications, facilities, equipment, first aid / treatment of injuries, equality, disabilities, child protection issues and training, as well as further developing school and community links. We encourage fair play, sportsmanship and equity. We have the FA Charter Mark for Quality and have gained the much sought after Kitemark. Our stated aim is to increase the quality of provision for children and to continue to raise our standards in all aspects of football. At Wideopen we have always prided ourselves upon our standards in all aspects of the game. Coaching is an area in which we excel and we have qualified coaches at all levels. We also have several Referees. The facilities will be made available to all children and adults within our catchment area. WFC's website is a central source of information about the club.
