JOINING OADBY OWLS
Welcome and thank you for visiting our website.
Oadby Owls is a progressive Charter Standard Community Club which provides boys and girls of all abilities the opportunity to enjoy the whole football experience. Our Saturday Academy provides a platform for children, as young as four years of age, to develop in a safe and friendly environment and is the gateway to joining one of our many mini soccer teams.
We ask that you park at the rear of Beauchamp College and follow the crowd across the back pitch to Coombe Park aiming to register there by 9.45am. There are no restrictions as to when to register or enrole a child at the Academy. We have new members joining every week!
The club insists that parents park responsibly as Coombe Rise is not only a residential area but also a bus route. You are able to register on the first day of attending.
The Academy is also very suitable for children not necessarily looking to play in an Oadby Owls team and who just wish to enhance their footballing skills.
Children must wear footwear and clothing relevant to the ground and climatic conditions. If the ground is soft then footwear with studs is required. If it is cold the children must be dressed up so that they are warm.
All children MUST wear shinpads and not have jewellery of any nature on. Chewing gum is also not permitted. The club does sell shinpads, warm base layer clothing, gloves etc etc
The Academy generally runs from the beginning of September through to the end of June, although there is a winter break from Christmas through to the end of January. If you click on the home page tab there is a document which provides details of key dates and when the Academy runs. With over 200 children attending each and every week the Academy really is a Grassroots success story. All our volunteers are CRB accredited.
The Academy costs £3 per attendance and an initial £30 membership. Upon completing six Academy sessions the child will be given a free Academy kit, supplied by the club.
There are no membership restrictions just come along. Further details of our academy can be found on the dedicated Academy web page.
