Game Sense United attended a workshop last night based on the new reformatted FA Charter Standard kite mark and all the support we can receive.

The FA Charter Standard Programme is The FA’s accreditation scheme open to all grassroots clubs and leagues. It aims to raise standards in the grassroots game, supporting the development of clubs and leagues, recognising and rewarding commitment, quality and achievement.

Proud to support clubs get up to the standard

The FA Charter Standard accreditation is for clubs who can be proud to be places where people want to play. These are the clubs who demonstrate they offer well-run and sustainable football. Clubs which achieve The FA Charter Standard status are proud to prioritise qualified coaching and safeguarding as well as the values of The FA’s Respect campaign as part of their game.

There are two different entry levels for The FA Charter Standard club accreditation:

  • The FA Charter Standard Youth

  • The FA Charter Standard Adult

Advanced levels are for clubs who look to grow participation, involve a variety of different people and offer different formats in their football environments:

  1. The FA Charter Standard Development is aimed at clubs who are enhancing the quality and scope of their football offering

  2. The FA Charter Standard Community acknowledges the most advanced level of club development and football provision

Clubs which achieve The FA Charter Standard accreditation are challenged to maintain high standards and, where appropriate, to improve and progress to new levels.

The accreditation makes a positive difference to the way clubs are run and to people’s enjoyment of football. The FA aims to support all grassroots clubs to reach Charter Standard status through our network of County FA’s.

Clubs and leagues work in partnership with County FAs to meet the criteria needed to achieve the accreditation. From 2018 funding toward The FA Level 1 Coaching Football qualification is available for clubs.

The next steps for GS United is to meet with the Jersey Football Association's Development Manager and discuss our Club Development Plan and submit this plan before 31st March 2019.

Thank you to FA Tom Lee for the presentation and to our JFA's Brain Oliver and Bob Lawrence for organising and hosting.

GS United travelled to Haute Vallee today to play our first ever fixture vs Jersey Scottish FC Minis. Games for players in school Years 2&4 where some incredible goals were scored, speculator saves made and some wonderful goal line clearances helped entertain the crowd in two evenly matched games. 

Thanks to James Scott and the Jersey Scottish coaches for hosting us, and for all parents and players who played the games in great spirit creating a positive environment.

Today also saw GS United host St.Lawrence FC Years 3&5 at Grainville. After the temperature plummeting below zero last night, a pitch inspection took place at 8:30am where due to the ice on the pitch and surrounds a last minute change from outdoors to indoors was made.

With the games moving indoors this created some different challenges to normal by creating plenty of learning opportunities for players and coaches to overcome. 

Thanks to Luca at St.Lawrence for his co-ordination of the St.Lawrence fixtures. 

As always a massive thanks to parents and players for all their support and to our dedicated coaching team who continue to provide up-to-date player centred coaching that helps our youngsters develop week on week. 

We're very proud of the progress our young players are making and how our club continues to make great strides forward.
