FA Youth Review Guides

A Youth Development Review was implemented by The FA 4/5 seasons ago, which fundamentally changed the way youth football is provided, introducing 5v5, 7v7, 9v9 formats across different age groups, adapting the competition structure to support the development of the player and to help improve players experience of the game. There was initially a lot of communication to the parents, coaches and volunteers about the changes, however, there hasn’t been anything since and it is important that we continue to communicate and raise awareness around the reasons behind the changes.

Please find below a simple, easy to use guide to download, that parents, volunteers and coaches can utilise to get a quick understanding of what youth football is now all about.
