Youth football in Northamptonshire

YOU'RE NEVER TOO YOUNG

Across Northamptonshire every week, thousands of children lace up their football boots and play in mini soccer or youth football. Hundreds of football clubs exist in all four corners of the county, run almost exclusively by volunteers, to provide high quality, safe and enjoyable football for children.

The FA provides a Charter Standard scheme to raise standards in coaching, administration and child protection. All affiliated mini soccer and youth football in Northamptonshire is Charter Standard.

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.

Wildcats

Girls across the county will be provided with increased opportunities to play football after a new nationwide participation programme was announced.
