Do you want your children to get involved with Falcons and enjoy weekend sport?
At our recent AGM in June and after plenty of discussion and contributions from all coaches it was agreed to increase subs to £100 for the coming season. The one off annual payment contributes towards the overall costs of training, pitch hire, pitch maintenance, equipment, insurance and league costs. We are a not for profit amateur sports club represented by 23 teams across all age groups, the club is run entirely by volunteers with a passion for football and all funds go towards the running of the club.
If you wish to make part payments that's no problem but please agree details with the Club Treasurer, Geoff Nash (to email click here) or your year group coach/manager.
On club finances, the reason why we maintain a cash surplus and are trying to build up that surplus is because we plan significant investment in equipment for use by the club at TAC and Sowerby Sports Village (part of the Sowerby Gateway development) over the next three years as well as secure our own stadium to bring semi pro football in Thirsk. Our fundraising team has been doing a fantastic job with tea sales, events and grants from various sources but we have taken a view that in order for the club to sustain and thrive over the coming years we need to build up our reserves. It will also mean we can invest in good quality equipment that should last for many seasons.
We hope you agree next season's annual subscription (2017/2018) still represents great value for money for the sporting activities we provide. We do try to keep subs as affordable as possible for all especially in tough economic times. On average over a 10 month playing season the registration fee breaks down to £2.50 a week and is one of the lowest in the County!
If you have any comments please email the club or speak with your age group coach/manager. We take on board any feedback - positive or negative.
Training sessions take place on Saturdays at several venues in town with league matches (for under 7ss and above) taking place on Sunday mornings. We supply kit for all of our teams and league registration fees are covered by the annual subscription.
We are an FA Charter standard inclusive club for all football fans - delivering FA approved coaching and player development. We are proud to have a UEFA B standard coach amongst our coaching team who helps other coaches within the club as well as our young players. Coaches are DBS checked according to FA guidelines and hold a minimum of Level 1 FA Coaching badge
We hold lots of events during the season including a family fun day that gets all of the squads together for a summer tournament and BBQ, and of course end of season presentations night hosted by age groups.

When you register your child for the first time we will need a photocopy of their passport or birth certificate for the league registration process. Then every year we need a completed appilcation form, two passport size photos and the annual subscription fee.
We have updated our registration form to include the name of your doctors surgery as we are required to notify the emergency services in the unfortunate event of an accident.
Use of photography
On the form is parent/carer consent to take photographs for use in club publicity and web promotion (i.e. Falcons Fun Day). If you have any issues please let your team coach know, preferably in writing.
Following FA guidelines on child protection we will not show a child's photo and identify them by name on the site or publicity materials and we will not share your information
