  • The coaches, especially Karl, has worked closely with our teaching staff to ensure that pupils are developing their skills. Our teachers have been offered first class support and are more confident in their own practice of teaching PE.

Colchester United Football in the Community Courses

Delivering high quality coaching to over 5,500 participants a week in your community

Colchester United’s Football in the Community is a registered charity that provides high quality sports and education programmes to children, young people and adults from across the East Anglian Region.

In September 2014, Colchester United Football in the Community was awarded charitable status, enabling us as an organisation to be supported by the Charites Commission and Football League Trust.

This also ensures that all the funding and income received is re-invested back into the improvement and development of the organisation. When you book an activity with us, you can be confident that your child will have a great experience and make new friends:

- At an affordable price
- In a safe learning environment
- At superb venues with great facilities

Working in the heart of your local community, parents can rest assured that all activities will be delivered by highly qualified coaches with a wealth of experience in developing young people of all abilities.

Our Football in the Community Development Centres also run in tandem with the club’s successful Academy programme, meaning a clear pathway into the club’s elite football programme for children of all ages.

For any more information on Football In The Community you can all us on 01206 755160. (Please be advised that telephone calls to FITC may be recorded for training and monitoring purposes)



“I’m very excited to be working with Colchester United’s FITC programme. I was impressed to hear that they’re working in over 50 schools and I know the players are looking forward to meeting many of those children this season!”
