These are exciting times for the Dundee and District Youth Football Association (DDYFA) with the start of the 4v4 season and the implementation of the new player pathway starting this month.

The pathway is revolutionary as, for the first time in Scotland; all children playing club football will play a format of the game that relates best to their age. The game formats will focus the player on developing the right skills and techniques for their stage of development. Without the buy-in of the Scottish Youth Football Association, who run youth leagues nationally, the pathway would not be ready to kick-off.

The DDYFA in partnership with both Dundee City Council and Angus Council will be providing 4v4 football for 6, 7 & 8 year olds at Gardyne Road, Dundee and Arbroath Sports Centre.
