Transitioning from Youth to Adult Football
Gloucestershire FA wants to support young female players transitioning from youth to adult football.
The Gloucestershire County Women’ League and Bristol Women's Football Casual League offers players the chance to play in open aged football from the age of 16 in either their traditional 11v11 league.
Finding it hard to balance your studies, social life, football and part-time job? Gloucestershire FA also have Turn Up and Play and Walking Football sessions that you can play in from the age of 16.
Use the England Football 'Find Football' tool below to find all the Adult Female Clubs within the County that are near you or contact Rich Todd, our Football Development Officer with the details in the Get In Touch box.
It'S EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY
If you feel that an adult connected to your league or club (e.g. a referee, coach or a volunteer) is mistreating someone under the age of 18, there are various confidential ways you can report this.
By ‘mistreating’, we mean behaving towards under-18s in a physical or verbal way you believe is threatening or makes the young person feel scared or bad.
Find out more and watch a short film The FA has produced explaining how to report your concerns. Of course, everything is completely confidential.
