GROVE

Grove Athletic JFC was born in Hazel Grove in 2016, with just one five-a-side team, from a belief that junior football should not be about how much money a club can generate, rather how much benefit the children can gain in an environment where the coaches really care. 

The club has grown rapidly since its inception and has achieved FA Charter Standard accreditation. With 9 teams - and continuing to expand - Grove Athletic are a club that ensure the children come first. Friendship and camaraderie are important, along with the development of each and every individual, enabling them to reach their potential.

The club believes that each team and age group is different and develops at different paces. As a result, there is no specific structure that teams have to follow - instead, the committee trust the qualified coaches to make decisions for their teams. The teams have plenty of choice, with the club affiliated to three junior leagues - the committee are also open to other leagues at each team's choice.  

This made a partnership between the club and SKFC a perfect opportunity, with such like minded philosophies. SKFC now host the Grove Athletic JFC Academy, beginning in 2020 when deemed safe to do so. We started with a Manchester City FC fun day, in which over 60 children attended the session at Hazel Grove High School.
