Garforth Villa Football Club are very proud of our Mini Villa football training sessions. This is where lots of our football players, begin their journey with Garforth Villa Football Club, with many still playing for our club 10 years later!


Mini Villa are exciting football training sessions, held in Garforth on a Sunday morning between 10am and 11am, for children aged 2-6 years old. All our training sessions focus on the children enjoying themselves, learning new skills and making new friends along the way.


We have some excellent Coaches at the club, who give up their time to provide fun football sessions for children. All sessions are run with a FA Qualified Coach.

Mini Villa is for children aged between 2 and 6 years old and is split into 3 groups: Nursery, Reception and Year One school ages. Training is fun based and progressive football skills are introduced each week in accordance with our coaching philosophy. Training activities are split into smaller groups, so sessions remain age and ability appropriate, offering your child a great first experience to football.

Mini Villa is run during the football season, so between September to May/June each year.

We are always looking for coaches to join our wonderful Mini Villa Team. If you would like to coach with Mini Villa please contact Simon Pinkney,

"I can't wait to get our Mini Villa kids back training"

Mini Villa is a passion of mine. I'm an experienced coach, also training our u15 Villa Whites. I always make sure our coaching sessions are lots of fun for the kids. I'm certain it will be a fantastic experience for those just joining us or returning to Mini Villa.

Any questions don't hesitate to ask me.
