A coaching strategy to develop FUNdamental skills, technical ability and tactical awareness for all our players.

"Enjoy, Develop, Succeed"

The LDJFC Coaching structure offers all our Managers, Coaches, Helpers and Parents the resources and support required to maximise the benefit to all our players.

The Teams are grouped by age and offered a Coaching Programme to help develop the individual's technical ability, in a fun and challenging learning environment, with equal opportunities to participate in a wide range of footballing activities.


The academy offers Under 5's and Under 6's children an introduction into football through fun games and activities concentrating on the FUNdamental skills (Agility, Balance and Coordination).
