Altrincham FC are both excited and proud to announce that it continues into its FIFTH year as a Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Centre.

We offer 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.

Places for our Silver 2019/20 cohorts are now available to book.

Bronze & Gold dates will soon be released.
