We are Sandridge Rovers Juniors
A small but powerful group of children, parents and coaches. United in our mission, but unique in our gifts. Founded in our community, but open to all those we meet. We exist to give any young player the opportunity and experience of being part of a team.
Football is our game.
Life is our journey.
A few simple beliefs guide us:
We believe every child is equal in their value, their contribution to the team and each other.
-
We believe that open communication on and off the pitch keeps us strong and together.
-
We believe in mutual generosity of time and effort - sharing both the load and success.
-
We believe sport plays a huge part in a healthy lifestyle, boosting wellbeing both physically and mentally.

The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.
Our values
Our values are clear and are the same for parents, coaches and children:
Teamwork not individual, no matter the consequence.
-
Positive words encourage - useful and helpful is best.
-
Manners and politeness help us show respect to everyone.
-
Trying hard is how we judge success.
-
As coaches we promise to treat you all as individuals, to make training fun, to teach you new skills and to help you become a stronger, better team.
-
As parents and supporters we promise to encourage all the children and contribute where we can. We promise to consistently back the coaches, giving them the space and support they need.
-
As children we promise to listen well to the coaches, learn something new each week and help make the team strong.
A pathway to adult football
the journey continues...
The friendships and bonds our players make coming through the ranks are precious commodities and serve them well as they mature.

To aid the transition from youth football, we’ve created a pathway for our U15 and upwards to connect with the Reserve and First Teams.

Unlike other nearby youth teams, we have a deep connection with the Sandridge Rover Adult team set up.

We want to ensure that when our players leave Secondary education and continue either to college, university or the world of work, they can continue their football journey into adulthood - all within the Sandridge Rovers family.
