Junior Josephs

Junior Josephs are the future of our club. Our development academy is for children aged 4-6 years old and the coaching sessions take place Monday’s 6pm-7pm at Rawmarsh Community School field throughout the summer and at Dearne Valley College during the winter – from 1st October onwards.

The sessions are run by fully FA qualified coaches who have been CRC checked to ensure that they are suitable to work with all young children. The aim of the sessions is to develop basic

football ability, skills and confidence through fun games and football activities. In addition, it also helps the children keep fit and healthy. Furthermore, it creates opportunities for children to develop their social skills and helps them develop new friendships.

Our Junior Josephs Foundation Unit is open to all and you can just turn up, but parents/carers/guardians must always stay to supervise their children, if required. The sessions run alongside some of our older teams, so parents and players can see how the training and coaching develops as the children grow older. Occasionally friendly matches may be arranged with other teams that operate development academies/foundation units.

Children should bring a drink, wear appropriate clothing and shin pads but they do not have to

wear studded boots, trainers will be fine. No jewellery should be worn during these sessions.


The fee for attending coaching sessions at Junior Josephs Foundation Unit is £1 per week, which is payable to the coach or a RSJ representative each session attended. Rawmarsh St Joseph’s JFC are proud to offer high quality football coaching and development at a low cost.
