The aim of Cambridge Football Club is to provide quality football opportunities for players of ALL levels and grading is the best way to ensure players are in teams with others of a similar ability; this process helps to ensure your child gets the best from their season.

Top teams
We are committed to having high-level competition teams in every grade. Places in these teams are allocated on ability, and also, importantly, attitude.

If having been placed in one of these teams we feel that a player is struggling or not showing the correct attitude it may, on occasion, be necessary to move them down; equally, players may also be moved into a higher level team if it is felt that they show the required skill level. This is done for the benefit of both the individual player and their team, by trialling for one of the top teams you are agreeing to this policy and accept that any decision made by the club is final.
