"Having fun and learning new skills from age 5 upwards"

Football for all ages


Welcome to FDS Harrogate. It is our aim to help every child fulfill their potential, whether playing in the playground with friends or going on to play in a World Cup final. 


Before any football considerations we aim to play a role in helping children to become good young people. We do not select children on ability as we are confident of producing excellent footballers regardless of past experience. 


FDS Harrogate began in 2003. We coach children from 5-18 years of age, with the training ongoing throughout the year.​
