Welcome to Huddersfield YMCA

The ethos throughout the whole football section is.... ‘It is all about the kids’... and that doesn't just mean the Junior teams, but all the help and support the Senior players and Coaches give the Junior section.


The YMCA football section is going from strength to strength with 15 junior football teams age groups from 5 years to Under 18's competing in the Huddersfield & District RCD Junior League; we have a really healthy Mini Soccer section for 5 & 6 year olds.

We also have two Open Age Teams;The First Team compete in League 1 of the West Riding County Amateur League and the Second team are in League 2 of the Yorkshire Amateur League.

We have both girls and boys playing in our younger age groups and if it was not for lack of space we would be actively pursuing setting up girls only teams.

We ensure that each coach has a minimum of a Level 1 FA coaching badge and that in the younger teams each player receives the same amount of game time regardless of their ability. The objective is to provide a good standard of football from the time you join our Club at the age of 5, through the junior football years and into Open Age football.

We invest a great deal of time and money in our coaches with the aim that the majority of players will stay at the Club beyond junior football as it is our ambition to climb the football ladder at the YMCA in a not too distant future.

We have a financial structure in place to provide each team with all the necessary kit and equipment to make their training and match days enjoyable for the children, their parents and the coaches.
