Woking Football in the Community Coaching Academy


The Woking Football in the Community Coaching Academy reflects an ethos which combines the provision of coaching in the local community with a full-time education programme.  It was created to bring together Woking Football Club and the local community and over the last 11 years has achieved many successes and won many awards.

The main aim of the scheme is to provide individuals the opportunity to participate in educational, health and fun-based football activities regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or ability with the following themes leading our vision:

  • Increase participation
  • Create opportunities
  • Tackle inequality
  • Improve health

The scheme currently provides over 100 hours of coaching within schools covering sports such as football, netball, tag rugby, badminton, tennis, hockey and athletics.

In addition to its work with schools, the team also administer the Surrey Community League for adults suffering from mental health problems. This includes a successful Walking Football programme for the over 50’s, Cardinal Juniors - a youth football team based in Maybury, and WISC (Woking Inclusive Sports Club) for children who find it hard to access main stream sports. Each year a number of tournaments are held on the pitch at Kingfield for boys and girls.
