Latest news from the Essex FA

Clubs and leagues which are well run and sustainable, rating child protection, quality coaching and safety as paramount, are invited to chat with Essex FA staff to discuss the benefits of securing FA Charter Standard status.

Members of the Development Team will be available for 30-minute, one-to-one ‘slots’ to advise on putting together an application, the ongoing criteria and the advantages of the club and league kite mark, which include England tickets and special training events.

Chelmsford’s County Office in Springfield Lyons Approach is the venue, with the first slot at 3pm. Further spaces are then available every 30 minutes until the last at 8.30pm.

The FA Charter Standard programme, supported by McDonald’s, recognises and rewards high quality levels of provision in club and league football.

There are three levels, each requiring set criteria to be met. Benefits include tickets for youth and women’s internationals, local in-service coaching events, administration support sessions and help with funding applications.

The ‘hidden’ benefits are key to most clubs working towards the kite mark. Achieving an FA Charter Standard award demonstrates to all members, parents, sponsors and the public, that a club is well organised and safe and that it offers opportunities for all.

Ian Bent, the Essex FA’s senior football development officer, has urged clubs and leagues to attend and said: “Whether a club is thinking about taking their first steps towards achieving Charter Standard status, whether they’re ready to submit a completed application, or if they’re somewhere in-between, this is the perfect opportunity to have a personal discussion with our Development Team in more detail and get the support and information they need.”

To book your time slot, or for more information, email ian.bent@essexfa.com or call 01245 393094 with your name, your club’s name and a contact email address and/or phone number.

Further details on the FA Charter Standard programme can be found at www.essexfa.com, on Twitter from @EssexCountyFA and by searching for ‘EssexFootball’ on Facebook.
