Shropshire FA Youth Council

About us


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:

- Deliver an Annual County Leadership day
- Supporting tournaments and festivals
- Supporting the football futures programme
- Supporting County FA Events
- Supporting the Kick It Out Campaign


Our members


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.
