Youth Girls Football in Hertfordshire

Under 16s

Opportunities for players aged U7 - U16.

Youth Football in Hertfordshire is thriving.

There are so many exciting opportunities for young players to get into the local grassroots game.

From Mini-Soccer for youngsters taking their first steps in the game, to kickabouts for those who don’t want the commitment of joining a club.

England’s success at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup captured the attention and hearts of the nation, as we look ahead with excitement to their adventure at the UEFA Women’s Euros this summer.

The bronze medal-winning Lionesses spoke of inspiring the next generation and creating a legacy. They certainly did just that – and The FA and Hertfordshire FA are here to foster that legacy.

Check out all the opportunities below to get involved in the local game.

Youth Player Development

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.
