SPORTING CLUB VISTA
YFC VISTA is a FA Charter Standard and London FA Affiliated Youth Club , we provide Youth football training and development opportunities in Southwark and Lewisham for young people (5-16 years) of all abilities and backgrounds. We currently have 250 members across a range of programmes.
We are an all inclusive London FA affiliated/Charter Standard club providing football development opportunities for young people aged 5-19 in South London, primarily in boroughs of Lewisham, Southwark and Lambeth.
We believe the game is the best teacher in nurturing and developing football talent for the constantly evolving environment of modern football. Our player centred philosophy facilitates young players who join our teams to become students of the game and take ownership of their football education.
The YFC Vista model does not focus on winning at all costs. We focus on long term developmental needs (LTAD) youth players who join our club.
Youth players who join our club youth teams will receive support and guidance focused on preparing them for the challenges faced in regular competitive youth football, our coaches place an emphasis on development of individuals/team over winning at all costs, which we believe creates players who are confident and have the ability able to adapt and solve tactical/technical challenges that arise in match situations independently of (command style) coach instruction.
