Weekly Coaching

AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust offer weekly coaching sessions to a variety of different age groups throughout the week. The sessions cover children from as young as one year olds, to adults over the age of 50 years old. All of our sessions are varied to fit the age group and abilities of participants that we are working with.

Sessions are run in several locations across Bournemouth, Poole and the wider areas. There is no preregistration needed for any of these sessions, as they all operate on a turn-up and play basis, all we do request is you provide the coaches with emergency contact details, in the unlikely event something may happen. This will also enable us to contact you regarding any changes to sessions.
