Youth Leadership Days

The Gloucestershire FA Youth Council is delivering two Youth Leadership Days, as part of the Football Futures programme in May and June of 2017 for young people aged 14-24.

The Football Futures programme aims to recruit, retain, develop, reward and provide a progressive pathway for young people in football. The Youth Leadership Days will provide a great opportunity for young people to develop key knowledge and skills that are vital for working / volunteering in football and transferable across other areas. The Leadership Days also aim to support leaders that attend to get involved in football through coaching, refereeing, running events and various other ways if they are not already.
