Youth Football

A Youth football development plan has been purposely set out as a simple and direct document which clearly identifies the key priorities based on detailed research and consultation with clubs, leagues, local authorities and others involved in the game. The purpose of this document is to set out The Football Association’s long term vision for the development of facilities to support the National Game.

The Football Association has a clear grassroots strategy for the game as a whole – the National Game Strategy 2011 – 2015. This document explains how the National Game will be supported through the development and improvement of both existing and new football facilities in the country. The role of facilities will be critical in developing the game in England.

This document has been developed to link into the National Game Strategy and through facilities investment, will support the wider ambitions of The FA to develop the National Game. Football foundation grants will be available to improve facilities in this period. Within the strategy will be the need to replace all the dangerous heavy children’s goalposts and replace all the inadequate plastic goalposts with dipping crossbars. 

ITSA Goal will be able to help replace badly designed goalposts and provide football clubs with better and easier to use equipment over the coming years.
