Football might seem like a sport for children and professionals, but luckily nothing could be further from the truth. Football is an activity perfect for adults of all ages and occupations, as it combines exercise, socialising, and sports skills. Whether you do it for fun or want to get serious about your training, Kent has an extensive range of academies to choose from.
Kent’s Football Governing Body
Kent FA (Football Association) is the governing body of football in Kent. Formed in 1881, Kent FA offers football training all across the county. While they do cater for the youth, their training is more focused on adult lessons. Their options include local county leagues, 11v11 adult football, flexi-football, futsal, kickabouts and many more focused programs. There also leagues for women and girls, the disabled and veterans, not leaving anyone out.
Canterbury City Football Club
Another football school that offers training to people from all walks of life is Canterbury City Football Club. They offer youth league training in Canterbury City, as well as football exposure and lessons to those with disabilities, an adult male team and leagues for men in their fifties and older, called City Walking Football.
Vinters In Maidstone
A third option of the many available is the Vinters Football Club in Maidstone, Kent. This football school, which started in 1974, has a vast range of 32 teams to choose from, including children aged 6, high school students, ladies and girls, adult men, and veterans. They also have a development squad for new members on Saturdays to improve their skills and techniques.
The accommodating nature of Kent county is clear in the generous and considerate football schools and teams available throughout the area. The careful consideration of children, men, women, girls, veterans and people with disabilities makes for a rich football training community and social environment with a place for everyone.
