Caerleon Junior Youth FC was founded in 1988 to support the soccer development of children living in and near Caerleon. It is now one of the largest and most successful youth soccer clubs in Wales with around 270 young players registered.
We are based in Caerleon, approximately 4 miles from Newport City centre in South Wales, UK. The Centurion’s head on our Club Crest represents the historic importance of Caerleon as a Roman Legionary Fortress and our Broadway pitches are close to the Roman Amphitheatre, Baths and Barracks. The traditional green and white colours of the senior Caerleon AFC team are proudly worn by all our Junior teams from Under 7’s upwards.
The Club is administered by a Committee and is funded by players subscriptions, sponsorship and occasional fund-raising events. We run mini-soccer (7-a-side) teams at every age group from Under 7’s to Under 11’s and 11-a-side teams from Under 12’s to Under 16’s. We have links to Caerleon AFC Under 19 and Senior teams. We also provide ‘fun football’ for Under 6’s and Under 5’s.
All our coaches are First Aid trained and must hold, as a minimum, the Football Association of Wales Football Leaders Award. We also have a trained Child Welfare Officer who ensures our coaches follow Child Protection guidelines and best practice.
The Club is very much a community asset for Caerleon and the parents social events are as enjoyable as the football.
