Ormskirk FC Kidz (U5s & U6s)

Ormskirk FC Kidz - 19th April 2016

Ormskirk FC Kidz is a football development group for kids in Reception and Year 1.

Children in these sessions are on a pathway to joining Under 7s teams (in Year 2) and playing league matches at a weekend when they're ready and old enough.

The sessions are outdoor on 3G, so players can wear football boots or astroturf trainers. Players should wear shin pads and bring a still drink with them. These sessions will be held in all weather conditions, so please make sure your child is dressed accordingly.


Everyone that goes to these sessions must register online by clicking here. For the 'Team Name', choose 'Kidz' and the school year your child is in. If you have any problems or queries, email us on, or text our Club Secretary, Steve, on 07736464624.


These sessions are £12 per month. We ask for monthly commitment to the sessions to help with our planning (more info here). There's also an annual £10 club registration fee to register. Payment must be made by standing order and the club's bank details can be found at the bottom of our Club Fees page.

Other Benefits

The main benefit is that we like to put on fun football sessions that the kids will enjoy. But there are other benefits that we try to offer too:

  • We have good scouting contacts at Liverpool, Everton, Wigan & Burnley, so we can let them know about any kids that have an advanced ability for their age. In the past 18 months, Ormskirk FC players have had trials at Liverpool, Everton, Man City, Man Utd, Wigan, Preston, & Burnley.
  • We will try to arrange group training sessions at professional clubs. This is a great experience for the kids. In the past few years, our kids have enjoyed training sessions at the Liverpool FC Academy in Kirkby and at an Everton development centre in Preston. We've also sent kids to training sessions at clubs individually too.
  • If we have enough players for an U5s or U6s team, we will try to arrange the odd friendly with other clubs.
  • If we can find a parent volunteer to manage an U6s team, we can try to enter an U6s team a year up in an U7s league (parents - get in touch with us if you're interested!). We've done this for the past 2 years and the teams have developed really well with the extra year of playing matches. One team has 4 kids playing for academies at the moment and won a tournament in the Summer, and another team has been doing so well in the U7s this season, after playing a year up last season, that they were invited to play against Liverpool FC at the Academy recently.
