New Youth Affiliation Requirements for 2016-17
We would like to highlight that The FA now requires clubs with youth teams (U18 and below) to have a named Welfare Officer who has the following;
- An in date FA accepted Criminal Records Check (CRC). (A check that is no more than 3 years old at the time of affiliation.)
- Attended a FA Safeguarding Children Workshop.
- Attended a FA Welfare Officer Workshop
In addition all youth team (Under18 and below) managers, assistant managers and coaches are all required to have an accepted FA CRC disclosure that is no more than 3 years old at the time of affiliation. Unlike last season there is no discretion for managers and coaches to be nominated without a valid CRC.
Failure to comply with The FA’s mandatory affiliation policy will mean your club will not be able to play within any County member leagues or competitions.
