Foundation Centre is the club's keystone community initiative and is open to all children primarily between the ages of four and ten.
Foundation Centre runs weekly at Knole Paddock from 09:30 until 11:00 on a pay-as-you-play basis so there is no obligation to attend every week. The cost is just £4 per week.
Foundation Centre is run by club coaches who provide drills, games and matches in a fun environment.
All players must bring a drink, shin pads and appropriate footwear for grass pitches and clothing. No prior registration is required so if you fancy coming along then simply turn up at Knole Paddock on a Saturday morning or send your detail via the Contact Us page
Solefield in our Community with Sevenoaks Town FC
We are delighted to be supporting a community initiative. We are providing our local Sevenoaks Town Football Club with Solefield branded kit for the coaches of their Foundation Centre. Some of our Year 2 and 3 boys, along with Mr Henry and Mr Parker were lucky to be the first to see the new kit at the Sevenoaks Town 3G pitch this week, where Solefield also has a new banner. Chairman, Paul Lansdale said, “It is exciting to have the support of Solefield School. Our Foundation Centre is a community football scheme designed for children aged 4 to 11 years old wanting to give football a go. It is also a coaching programme which allows our youth players teenagers and young adults the opportunity to coach whilst being supervised and mentored by qualified football coaches. They in turn benefit from the skills to coach children, improve their social skills and self-esteem as well as having something positive on their CV. These coaches progress onto taking Football Association Level 1 coaching badges, safeguarding courses and emergency first aid. This all provides them with the steps to help them on their way.” Our former Gap Student and a former youth player at Sevenoaks Town FC, Matt Volpato helped build up the Foundation Centre initiative and says, “I'm very glad that Foundation Centre has become a crucial part of the Club and it will be massively important for a long time to come. This support for Foundation Centre will be incredibly important to enable us to provide the best
experience possible for children in the community.” Coaches will be presented with the branded kit at the Skills School this weekend. Mrs Henry, Marketing Manager
