Dome soccer school - website

Run by the Reading FC Community Trust, with our FA-qualified coaches leading the way, it’s a great way for boys and girls of all levels of ability to stay active and make new friends whilst playing footy ‘the Reading way’!

There is a broad range of different courses available for boys and girls aged between 6 and 17,  plus we have some specialised sessions:
–    girls-only courses
–    goalkeepers’ days
–    NEW football workshops for 15 – 17 year olds

As well as courses at the Academy Dome adjacent to Madejski Stadium, we are also running sessions all around Berkshire and the Thames Valley area – including Goals Centre (Woodley), Henwick Playing Fields (Thatcham), Palmer Park and Piggott School in Reading.

Book your place and get ready for a summer full of football!

Community Trust recruiting for next course

In association with Adviza and the Prince’s Trust, Reading FC Community Trust are looking for participants to get involved in their latest instalment of the Team Programme, which starts again in September!

‘Team’ is a 12-week, full-time programme for young people aged between 16 and 25 who are currently unemployed, not training or any form education.  Taking place from Monday to Friday at Madejski Stadium, the programme is designed to re-engage the participants, helping them to think about their futures and move forward, ultimately into employment, education or training.

We will be hosting a Taster Session on Monday 19th September, and the Team Programme itself begins the day after on Tuesday 20th September.
