Youth Foobtall (11-18)
YOUTH FOOTBALL IN GLOUCESTERSHIRE IS THRIVING
There are so many exciting opportunities for young players to get into the local grassroots game.
From Mini-Soccer for youngsters taking their first steps in the game, to kickabouts for those who don’t want the commitment of joining a club.
England’s success at the UEFA Women's Euro 2022 having reached the semi-finals of each of the last three major tournaments - 2015 & 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup and UEFA Euros 2017 - has captured the attention and hearts of the nation.
The winning Lionesses spoke of inspiring the next generation and creating a legacy. They certainly did just that – and The FA and Gloucestershire FA are here to foster that legacy.
Check out all the opportunities below to get involved in the local game, either through the England Football 'Find Football' toolbar or you can use the contact details in the Get In Touch box to speak with Rich Todd, our Football Development Officer.
Tuesday (Term Time Only)
Lockleaze Sports Centre, Bonnington Walk, BS7 9XF

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.
The FA Girls' Talent Pathway
The FA Girls’ England Talent Pathway was put in place to support the identification and development of those with elite potential.
It also ensures that appropriate playing opportunities are in place to enable players to fulfil their developmental needs and reach the ultimate goal of producing elite English female players to compete on the world stage.
