When and where do you train/play?

Our primary Saturday training venue is in Regents Park.  See Map below. We are on the nearest football pitches to the Broadwalk Cafe.

Our Elite Boys also train at Paddington Recreation Ground on Friday evenings and our Mini-Booters at Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre on Wednesday afternoons.

What program should I register for my son or daughter for?

Boys Foundation - Our foundation program is for boys between 6 - 16 who are wanting to start a football journey at a club, but do not want to commit to playing matches for a team.

Boys Elite - Our Elite boys program is for the more serious footballer, who wants to train twice a week & play matches.  This is invitation only, following a trial.

Girls - Our girls program is for open to all girls between 6 - 16. Our players range from beginners to those who are playing for professional clubs.

Mini-Booters - For all boys and girls from 3 - 5 years old.

All boys & girls are required to become "Saturday Morning Members" (£700 per Season payable in two installments) & buy matchday kit/training top/Rain Jacket and tracksuit (£160).

The £700 covers Saturday training sessions for two hours over the course of the season from September - July (Usually 40 weekends, approx. £17.50p per week) and is our Yearly membership fee.

Additional midweek or extra weekend training outside of the Saturday 10am - 12noon sessions & league teams come at an additional cost.

At St. Johns Wood FC we believe that all players should be able to play for our club, irrespective of their financial situation and therefore are willing to discuss discounted term fees & payment plans.  Please do not be afraid to get in touch!
