Welcome to the Dover Athletic Football Club Youth website!

Dover has a great history of developing exciting young players. Over the years many have pulled on the famous white shirt of DAFC and ran out onto the pitch as a local hero.

Here at the DAFC youth section our aim is to keep that tradition alive and inspire our young players of all ages to aim for the top.

We have close ties to the DAFC main club and we work with the Board of Directors who are very supportive and want to see local players coming through the ranks and into the squad.

We strive to provide a professional organisation and environment akin to the main club. We aim to improve and develop the knowledge, strength, fitness and football skills of our young players.

Under the tutelage of UEFA qualified coaches and as part of a FA Charter Standard community club, children of all ages are given the opportunity to progress right up to first team football.

We are actively looking for new teams & managers of any age group not currently covered at DAFC. If you have a team or would like to start a new team please let us know.

New sponsors and volunteers are always welcome – if you feel you can help us in any way at all please email us via our contact form. Thank you for visiting the Dover Athletic Youth Section website, please explore and I look forward to meeting you soon.
