Shropshire FA Youth Council
Shropshire FA Youth Council
The Shropshire FA Youth Council is made of up some of the most passionate young volunteers in Shropshire football and we pride ourselves on delivering a service for young people by young people which benefits all! Our purpose and vision as a youth Council is to inspire, empower and most importantly provide a voice for all children and young people to influence change and develop a lasting legacy in football for Shropshire.
What we do
We do this through creating, delivering and supporting events which aim to improve the leadership skills of young people within various areas of football from coaching to refereeing, administration to disability. We aim to provide young people with the knowledge and support they need to either get involved or enhance and develop their skills in a fun and active environment. Examples include:
- Supporting County FA Events
- Supporting the work of The National FA Youth Council and fellow West Midlands county youth councils
- Supporting the Kick It Out Campaign - See Event held on Sunday 10th Feb 2019 in partnership with the Shropshire Junior Football League
- Representation on Shropshire FA run leagues and committees
- Offer opportunities to get involved in national leadership schemes
- Youth Leadership Programme:
As a youth council we aim to run an extensive programme throughout the year including multiple events across a range of topics including refereeing, coaching and much more. These events will be run by the youth council with the support of experienced and qualified tutors in partnership with the Shropshire FA to provide young people with a wealth of opportunities to get involved in the game in many ways. Whether you're qualified or not we would love to see as many young people get involved to learn new skills or develop existing skills to create a strong and enthusiastic group of young volunteers within Shropshire with opportunities to grow and develop. For more information and to see these great events please follow the link below.
The Youth Council aims not only to improve and support the youth volunteer workforce in the community and subsequently youth football but also develop its members in becoming more confident, knowledgeable and employable people. Members will receive CPD training to allow their personal development and support in their roles on the council. All members are reliable, passionate, active and approachable with high values and expectations of one another and themselves for optimum teamwork and results. Our Youth Council is a fun and friendly environment in which a great group dynamic allows everyone’s voices to be heard and have their say in the way youth football is run and developed in Shropshire whilst enjoying one another’s company.
