MISSION STATEMENT

 

The club aims to provide a safe, disciplined, friendly environment for all members. It looks to actively develop all registered playing members regardless of ability to attain improved performance levels throughout their membership of the club. We promote a healthy lifestyle and provide opportunities for children under the age of 18 to participate in regular physical activities.

Our mission is to, through the advancement of education, successfully initiate, develop and implement a structured and progressive coaching syllabus for Cramlington Juniors Football Club. In pursuit of this goal we will promote and provide development opportunities for advancement for all registered players. The implementation of such a coaching syllabus will through time enable the Club to improve the standard of play and the performance of players within the local community.

It is the aim of the Club to provide all registered players with a positive experience of a professional, well organised and well run junior football club. Players will be encouraged at all times to take the opportunities that are presented to them through additional training sessions, with the ultimate goal of providing a pathway into the professional game for those with the necessary talent but also an overall enjoyment of sport for all who participate in our program.

A growing body of research finds that in addition to an improved physical wellbeing, participation in sport plays a primarily positive role in youth development. This can include an improved academic achievement, higher self-esteem, fewer behavioral problems, and better psycho-social outlook. It has long been thought that the many facets of playing sport as a child; the discipline of training, learning teamwork, following the leadership of coaches and captains, learning to lose, all provide lifelong skills for adulthood. This is a philosophy to which the Club fully subscribes.

In addition to the provision of the football programme, the Club are specifically responsibility for the upkeep and maintenance of our Ann Welfare clubhouse buildings as well as the grass pitches at Ann Welfare and Kramel.

The club is run solely for the benefit of the members and all trustees, managers and coaches are volunteers who are not paid for the time that they give.
