Beckenham Town Junior Football Club - Home
Change to Saturday training in January (just for some):
To spare the pitches at Blakes during the worst of the winter the existing U8-U11 Beckenham Town TEAMS will switch their Saturday morning training to GOALS Elmers End Road, BR3 4EJ (adjacent to Elmers End station and Tesco superstore) for several weeks, continuing on 21st January. Please can you note this is a 4G surface and players/coaches should not wear boots with metal studs (just moulds or astros please).
U7s, girls teams and all development teams will continue to be able to train at Blakes (pitch conditions permitting!). Training at Blakes will start at 9.15am as usual. For those training at GOALS please try to arrive also for 9.15am: the training is booked 9.30am until 10.30am sharp (we have to vacate the pitches for other bookings), so we will try to make the most of the time we have by starting promptly.
Frost - if any venue is checked on the morning and deemed to be too dangerous to play on, we will try to update you all as quickly as possible via this website, Facebook etc.....
Beckenham Town Junior Football Club is now a Football Association (F.A.) Charter Standard football club. We are centred in the Beckenham / West Wickham area but with members and a following that spans the London borough of Bromley and beyond.
The FA Charter Standard programme is a kitemark, which recognises and rewards high quality levels of provision in club and league football. The kitemark is awarded to clubs that are well run, sustainable, which place child protection, quality coaching and safety paramount.
Criteria for achieving the award include having a trained Welfare Officer, CRB checks for all volunteers, Emergency Aid-trained volunteers linked to each team, Respect programme sign-up, a Level One coach for each youth team, appropriate club administration in place and a volunteer co-ordinator.
BTJFC, going from Strength to Strength
Beckenham Town Junior Football Club is also registered with and are active participants in the Football Association Respect Programme.
Beckenham Town Junior Football Club is completely staffed by volunteers on both the administrative and coaching side. A large number of our coaches have been trained and accredited by the F.A., provisioning us well to provide a highly professional and well managed organisation for the development of youth football.
At Beckenham Town Junior Football Club our focus is creating a fun environment for our youngsters to develop both as individuals and as young sports men and women.
The club was established in 1991 and has grown to span 12 age groups between the ages of 7 and 18. Each year the club scales up adding a new group at the under 7 level, this will continue until an upper age group of 18 is achieved.
Our current complement is in excess of 350 boys and girls and a staff of 30, each year adding around 25-30 new children and another 3 staff members. Running a club on this scale requires a large amount of material resources, in terms of equipment from balls and cones to football kits and even down to the costly booking of various grounds for training and games.
The club has grown considerably over the past three years and has a strategic vision and desire to grow in quality and evolve further. This will be achieved with the continued support of our staff and the generous contributions made by companies and individuals who want to give something back and help build a legacy for the Beckenham and West Wickham community.
