Info 4 U18's
Football is about having fun, being with friends, making new ones, playing games, trying new skills and being part of a team, if you want.
It should be fun to do all of these things - having fun is what is important.
Sometimes adults get it wrong and do things which hurt, frighten or worry children. It doesn't happen often in football, but it does happen.
