The Dorset Youth Football League

The DYFL was founded in May 2001, and was formerly known as the Dorset Divisional Youth League,  with the aim to administer youth (boys) football in the Under 11 to Under 16 age groups.

The competition is sanctioned by the Dorset County Football Association.

The League now consists of 51 clubs and 179 teams spread over the six age groups, with approximately 2500 registered players. Although the majority of clubs are registered with the Dorset County Football Association, there are also clubs who are registered with Hampshire, Somerset, Wiltshire and Devon. As the Football Association allows mixed gender teams up to and including the Under 16 age group, there were over twenty girls registered with teams during 2015/2016 season. This season, the first all girls team has applied and been accepted in to the League competition.

In line with the Football Association's directive for Youth football, the DYFL has started to run a non-competitive competition in Under 11 age group from the 2015-2016 playing season. The remaining age groups remain competitive.

Also started in 2015/2016, was an annual League Cup competition which will be run in parallel with the other fixtures. The Cup culminates with a Finals Days which will be played at one venue.

This playing season,  the Finals Day will be held on 7th May 2017, the venue will be Bournemouth Sports Club (East Parley).

Hi Club

 

TWO EVENING LOOKING AT “PRE SEASON FOR YOUTH PLAYERS”

 

We have a fantastic opportunity for the coaches of your clubs to attend a CPD Event with FA Regional Coach Development Manager Martin Dighton, which will be free for Dorset Youth Coaches.

 

Martin will be looking at ideas for training for youth player pre-season, ready for the new season 2017/2018.

 

We will hold 2 evenings, so that the sessions will target age groups, the 1st session will be on Friday 7th July and it will target coaches of ages U11,U12,U13 (season 2017/2018)  and the 2nd session will be on Friday 14th July and it will target coaches of ages U14,U15,U16 (season 2017/2018). Both sessions are from 6.30pm to 8.30pm

 

It will be held at Dorset County Ground, Blandford Road, Hamworthy, BH15 4BF on the new 3g pitch.

 

It will be broken into 2 parts, there will be practical and a bit of classroom information.

 

Coaches will need the correct footwear for the 3G pitch  and I am sure you will all agree this is a great opportunity for the coaches to pick up some of Martin coaching ideas and put into practice ready for the new season.
