We set up Regent’s Park FC in 2006, but many of our coaches have been coaching for much longer and together the senior team has over [x] years coaching in top flight clubs as well as in children’s football.
We are based in the beautiful Regent’s Park which has lovely surroundings and great pitches.
We try to do our best to be better at giving our Children, Youth and Senior footballers the best environment in which to play football to a high level.
Our aim is to be one of the top community clubs in England. In 2019. we have been awarded the FA Charter Standard Community Club.
Our Regent's coaching system works for all levels players and we have a huge number of players that stay with us from Primary to Secondary School and now move on to both our Ladies and Men's teams.
We believe in giving our players a goal and every year for the last 10 years we have taken teams to the Gothia Youth World Cup in Gothenburg, Sweden, the biggest kids football tournament in the World! Our aim is to win this and we believe giving our players a goal makes them stronger as players and people as well as giving them the opportunity to play at the highest levels. It is also fun.
In addition to the Gothia Cup, we have won a number of Leagues and Cups [list here]
Classes for Regents Park FC are open to all abilities and we run our training classes both in the Parks at weekends and our midweek classes are held at our local schools and sports centres during the week. See where we train for details.

The Regent's Park club team are passionate about supplying the best football coaching programs available and we look to benchmark the very best coaching clubs. This has seen us work with Tahuichi, in Bolivia, Athletic Bilbao to our partnership with Queens Park Rangers. Our coaching team meets on a four to six week basis and our core functions are;
Our Regents way begins with our Toddler and Kids sessions for our 4 to 6 year olds and this program is managed by our wonderful Keeley Kemble. All children are different and learn at different levels, so our coaching sessions will have a variety of ages within them. The key is having fun and in our parents just enjoying watching our young players.
Our coaching way or structure requires specific developmental steps at key moments in the player's growth and to achieve this most effectively and consistently "Age Band Specialists" are appointed to deliver their own key phase of the system.
We base our way on having three to four hours and 2000 touches a week. Increasing to over 3000 with our older players.
U8 & U9 Phase: Introducing Technique,
U10 & U11 Phase: Teaching Technique
U12 Phase: Tuning the Technique
Each session is geared around touching the ball as many times as possible. Basic motor skills such as running, skipping and hopping are emphasised, improving ball control and general movement. But above all the emphasis is on fun for your child!
U13 to U14 Phase: Turning technique into Skill
U15, U16 and U17 Phase: Preparing our player program for University/Senior squads.
We believe our club should be professionally run. We also believe we need to hire the best coaches and pay them properly too. We also need to pay admin fees, league fees, pitch hire, insurance, accounting and legal fees. The website and app also cost a lot to run. This all adds up. We receive no outside funding so your subs go towards ensuring our coaches are paid properly and the club is run well. As a result, our club either breaks even or makes a small loss every year.
Over [30%] of our players are on bursaries, as they would not be able to afford the full fees (of this or any other club). We thank all our parents who pay the full amount for effectively subsidising other families.
