Youth Football in Hertfordshire

Get involved in local youth football

There has never been a more exciting time to get into children's football.

Hertfordshire FA support an incredible grassroots community of leagues, clubs, coaches, volunteers and parents to provide a safe and fun environment for young people to football.

We work hard with these partners to provide children, teenagers and young adults of all abilities with a wide range of opportunities to get involved in the game.

Small-sided formats such as 4v4 and 5v5 are at the forefront of delivery within our youth leagues as the Youth Development Review takes shape.

The future of the game is designed to increase the number of touches of the ball, develop confidence and skill in 1v1 situations while assisting with the long term player development of young footballers in this country.

Why do we make our kids play like adults?

Let’s provide a safe and fun environment for young people to develop in football.

Hertfordshire FA encourage a modern, child-friendly approach to youth football, challenging the win-at-all-costs mentality that is stifling development and enjoyment for young people.

Working together with a proactive attitude, adults can help develop a better learning environment for young people that put their development needs at the centre of the process.
