Keeping football safe and enjoyable
Let's Talk About Keeping Children Safe in Football
Everyone with a child involved in the game should be clear about safeguarding. Watch this video to find out more about how you can play your part in keeping football safe.
What Qualifications Are Required?
Working together we can create a positive environment where young people and adults at risk are protected from harm. An essential element of this is ensuring all involved are appropriately qualified for the role they are carrying out.
This document lists the requirements for different roles across grassroots football in the 2023/24 season.
Supporting Young People in Football
If we are to build a bright future for football in our county, we need to ensure the voice of young players, coaches, referees and volunteers are heard. At Hertfordshire FA we are committed to helping children have the best possible experience in football.
To help with this we have pulled together a range of information, guidance and resources for young people, along with a survey you can complete to tell us what you think about the game.
