FOOTBALL IN THE COMMUNITY
The Chelmsford City Football in the Community Programme (FITC) offers a wide range of community-based football projects including;
- Coaching for 4-14-year-olds
- Disability football
- Walking football over 50’s
Coaching sessions are held at locations across the City of Chelmsford by our highly-qualified and experienced coaches.
We also have coaching courses during school holidays, with special guest appearances from first-team and Academy players; this also includes goalkeeper coaching.
As part of the Football in the Community programme, we also have an adult disability team who train from 5-6pm on Tuesday evenings at Writtle College. The team compete in tournaments a few times each year, held in Suffolk.
If you’d like any more information on our Football in the Community programme, then please contact Community Officer, Chris Finch, on 07990673213 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to check out our Facebook page for up-to-date information on courses.

Chelmsford City Walking Football Club has been around since the inception of the game in 2012. Walking football is aimed at the over 50’s and the club has over 100 members, ranging from 52 to 80 years of age.
It is a 6-a-side game, with all the skills of the 11-a-side game, except players cannot tackle, put the ball over head height, or, more importantly, run! It forces players to be good at close control, passing and positional play.
