As an FA Charter Community Club, we operate to the highest standards set by the FA for youth football clubs. We take the Standard very seriously, and all players, managers, coaches and spectators are expected to adhere to our codes of conduct.
We are based at the Berkhamsted Community Cricket and Sports Club, Kitcheners Field, Castle Hill, Berkhamsted. Matches are normally played on Saturdays (girls) and Sundays (mixed, boys and seniors) between September and April. Each team trains once per week.
