Altrincham FC are both excited and proud to announce that it will be continuing into its THIRD year as a Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Centre and will be offering local young people the opportunity to complete the Bronze, Silver and Gold awards via a structured and supportive programme.

As you will be well aware, completing the DofE award will provide young people with an edge in an ever increasingly competitive world. It says something about the character and wider skills of a young person that both further and higher education institutes, as a well future employers, value highly.

To register your place, please complete the pre-application form here (Silver and Gold only) and attend the information evenings at Altrincham FC Community Sports Hall.

Thanks for all your organising and the time the whole family has given to this – it all seemed incredibly well organised!! Thanks for making it such an enjoyable and positive experience for Henry (despite the rain!) Please send my thanks to the volunteer parents too.

We want to thank you for organising the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, and particularly the expedition. Alex has loved being involved and meeting new people, and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of the camping trip, which sounded fantastic. We’ve both been hugely impressed with your organisation, patient communication with parents and your ability to manage a group of teenagers! Many, many thanks for giving up your time to do this. It’s much appreciated.

I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work getting the group through this and the way you have kept the parents informed of what is happening. The pictures are great.
