The Football Futures programme

The FA Football Futures programme will anable the FA to enthuse, retain and develop young people regardless of their background, gender or level of ability.

The programme will play a vital role in developing the volunteer workforce within the game by creating an effective pathway for young leaders to continue their volunteering experience in FA Charter Standard clubs or other appropriate agencies.

A football club is about far more than just the players on the pitch. A successful club needs volunteers to help with coaching, managing accounts, dealing with child protection issues, ground maintenance, first aid, fundraising, web design etc. All these roles play a vital part in the development of a successful club.

The Surrey County FA is committed to recruiting new volunteers that can have a positive contribution to football in Surrey. We have therefore set up a volunteers ‘Football Futures’ Programme which is designed to mentor new volunteers and provide them with the skills and experience required to make a real difference.

By simply registering your details and logging your volunteer hours you will become part of the Surrey County FA ‘Football Futures’ Programme and as a result will be kept up to date on volunteer opportunities local to you, together with new and existing training courses and special offers.

In addition you will also be invited to attend the annual volunteer’s celebration evening and will also have the opportunity to be nominated for the annual County, Regional and National FA workforce awards.
