Youth football Guides

 

A review has been implemented in recent seasons which fundamentally changed the way we provide youth football, introducing 5v5, 7v7, 9v9 formats across different age groups and adapting the competition structure to support player development and improve their experience.

To ensure the communication of these alterations continues to filter through, The FA have created some Youth Football Guides to assist with their implementation. You can view this guide in 'Related Documents' below or you can download a smartphone app.

Reporting Concerns

It'S EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY 

If you feel that an adult connected to your league or club (e.g. a referee, coach or a volunteer) is mistreating someone under the age of 18, there are various confidential ways you can report this.

By ‘mistreating’, we mean behaving towards under 18s in a physical or verbal way you believe is threatening or makes the young person feel scared or bad.

Find out more and watch a short film The FA has produced explaining how to report your concerns. Of course, everything is completely confidential.
