Jersey FA Youth Council

Providing a voice for young people in football

The Youth Council is made up of young people between the ages of 14 and 24, who passionately involve themselves within the grassroots football community, whether that is as a player, coach, referee, volunteer or fan. 


Being a member of the Youth Council also provides opportunities to support the County FA. Examples include helping out at local club football festivals, running projects, running competitions for the youth or sharing discussions on how football can be improved on the island.
