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
Our aim is to support the County FA to achieve their targets, whilst working with members by providing CPD to help with their personal development.
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 have included:
- 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 23rd February 2020 in partnership with the Shropshire Junior Football League
- Representation on Shropshire FA Grassroots Football League and Shropshire FA Committees
The Shropshire FA are currently looking at different ways to now make an impact due to COVID so they will be looking at different ways in engaging with the young people of Shropshire.
Shropshire FA Youth Council:
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.
