"Creating a Fun, Safe Environment for All"
There has never been a more exciting time to get your children playing football.
There are over 2,200 players of all ages involved in football who are supported by 500+ volunteers working alongside the Jersey FA to ensure the grassroots game flourishes and continues to be the Island's number one participation sport. In association with the Jersey Football Combination League, clubs and schools, there is now a pathway for young players to develop and enjoy the game.
Small-sided formats such as 5v5, 7v7 and 9v9 are at the forefront of delivery within our youth leagues as the Youth Development Review takes shape, and the future of the game is designed to increase the number of touches of the ball, develop confidence and skill in 1v1 situations while assisting with the long term player development of young footballers.
