How does my child join/register interest?
Our mission as a Club is to provide local boys and girls with a range of footballing opportunities. This website will provide you with an overview of the various opportunities available for your sons and daughters.
If they are interested in attending a session or joining a team you should firstly register your interest using the New Player Enquiry form, this is a central register of interested players which our Coach and Player Development Committee manage.
Secondly, you should make contact with the team manager(s) within your child’s age group to register your interest. Managers’ contact details are listed within the Teams section of this website and they will be able to give you an overview of the situation within their team – if they have availability or a waiting lists etc.
When and where are matches played?
As members of the Mid-Cheshire Youth League, Younger teams (Under 7s – Under 12s) play matches on a Saturday morning. Older teams (Under 13s – Under 18s) play on a Sunday morning or early afternoon.
Our home is Helsby High School and we play the majority of our home games there, we also play some of our fixtures at Saltworks Farm playing fields in Frodsham. As members of the Mid-Cheshire Youth League our teams also have away fixtures all over Cheshire.
As members of the Cheshire Girls Football League our girls teams play their league games every other week at Moss Farm leisure Complex in Hartford. In addition, our girls teams play home friendly fixtures at Helsby High and away friendly fixtures across Cheshire.
Are girls able to join the Club and play?
Absolutely yes! In fact we have one of the biggest girls sections in the Cheshire FA with seven teams and over 120 girls registered to play. We are delighted to welcome girls at all age groups!
Girls are also welcome to play in boys teams up until under 16s providing this is appropriate for the player in question.
In addition, we have been selected by the FA to run an Weetabix Wildcats centre, providing girls aged 5-11 with regular organised football sessions in a fun and engaging environment.
What equipment do players need to wear?
For both training and matches players are required to wear shin pads and appropriate footwear – astro trainers when on the astro turf and football boots when on the grass.
This is a requirement for reasons of safety and of our insurance policy.
Are your coaches paid?
No – all Frodsham JFC managers and coaches are volunteers. They give their time, skills and expertise freely.
When appropriate, the Club occasionally pays for external coaches to come in and support our footballing activity.
Who runs the club?
Our Club is run by an elected Executive Committee, which meets monthly. For a full overview of the executive committee, its purpose and the specific roles within it click here.
The Club holds an Annual General Meeting at the end of each season in which any member of the Club can propose business and vote.
Where do you train?
Nearly all of of teams now train at the 3G pitch at Helsby High School, one or two teams train at the 3G pitch at Helsby Community Sports Club.
How much does it cost to join Frodsham Junior FC?
Registration fees are £175 per player.
We also offer a sibling discount of £25 per player for any additional players from the same family.
These fees, paid either in ten monthly instalments or as a one off payment, place us as one of the most affordable clubs in the area when compared to other local teams and every single penny is spent on our Club.
How do I pay my child’s subs?
All subs are paid online through our website as part of the Player Registration Process, either as a one off payment or in ten monthly instalments.
Does everyone play in matches?
Provided your child attends training on a regular basis, turns up on time wearing the correct kit, follows our Code of Conduct, has a good attitude and their subs have been paid, then yes. Team managers, especially at the younger age groups, will try their very best to give every player equal playing time – this may not be every week but should balance out over the season. Older players tend to want to compete more so team selection may be more based upon effort, application and development.
