Barton United JFC have begun junior football training sessions in Barrow on Thursday evenings.  The club is providing junior football at all formats; 5v5, 7v7, 9v9, 11v11. At the moment the club runs a Sunday Session which is to attract children into football and make the experience fun and enjoyable whilst making new friends. The age range for this is from 4 up to 12 year olds.  However, we have been known to accept 3 year olds who are ready for football. Children can’t start playing football in an organised manner in accordance with the FA until they become U7’s.
At the moment the club has U6, U7, U8 (x2), U9, U10 (x3), U11 (x2) and U14 teams on our books for the 23/24 season, together with an Open Age Barton United Ladies.
All the coaches have FA Level 1 coaching certificate and one has UEFA C) and all have to have completed the FA specific 1st aid and safeguarding courses. All the managers involved are parents of children in the teams and in many cases this is the same for assistant managers too. The club is heavily reliant on volunteers to support, not only running a team but, support the Sunday session too. This normally comes in the form of parents who come forward to ensure, not only their child has football but others too.
