Creating a fun, safe environment for all
If your child wants to play football in Jersey, there are many opportunities regardless of their ability.
Whether it's through our Community Programme, Centre of Excellence or Player Development Centre, or through one of the island's clubs or schools, there is a pathway for all young players to develop their skills and enjoy the game.
Small-sided formats such as 5v5, 7v7 and 9v9 are at the forefront of delivery within our youth leagues 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.
The Jersey FA Combination League runs youth divisions from U11s up to U18s. Younger players don't miss out though, as many affiliated clubs run "Minis" teams for children between 5 and 11 years old. Girls and boys can play together in youth and minis matches and football is centred around creating a fun, safe and enjoyable environment for children to take their first steps into the game.

YOUTH FOOTBALL IN JERSEY
If you feel that an adult is mistreating someone under the age of 18, there are various confidential ways you can report this.
By "mistreating", we mean behaving towards under-18s in a physical or verbal way you believe is threatening or makes the young person feel scared or bad.
Find out more and watch a short film that the FA has produced, voiced by Jersey's Graeme Le Saux, explaining how to report your concerns. Of course, everything is completely confidential.
Girls across the island are provided with increased opportunities to play football through this nationwide participation programme...
