About the club...

Formed in 1999 Hythe & Dibden Youth Football Club currently runs 32 teams from the under 7 to under 18 age groups and offers training to children from reception year age at our popular soccer school & futsal sessions. We also offer specialist goalkeeper training for all these age groups.
In 2014 we were awarded F.A Charter Standard Status.
The FA Charter Standard programme is a kitemark, which recognises and rewards high quality levels of provision in club and league football. The kitemark is awarded to clubs and leagues that are well run, sustainable, and which place child protection, quality coaching and safety paramount.
Read more about Charter Standard at the FA website here

Hythe & Dibden YFC is not just about progressing as a footballer, it plays a bigger
role in building self esteem, promoting self discipline, team work,
promoting commitment, providing positive physical activity and bringing
a community
together for children and adults alike...

We are not a results based club and strive to provide football for all children at all levels

We would like to give a great big thank you to all our trainers & managers, sponsors & parents
and especially the players who make up such a great football club.
