| ||Surrey FA Club & League Roadshows 2019 || |
| ||Surrey FA is hosting three Club & League Roadshows across the County which will take place in February and Early March.|
Please indicate below which Roadshow you are interested in, and also which workshops you would like to attend on the day - as well as the organisation you are from.
Each Roadshow will have four workshops, of which you may attend only two. Please find a brief summary of each workshop below:
Attendees will have the opportunity to receive guidance on how their club or league can benefit from The FA and Football Foundations funding streams for facilities, which will include the process to apply for new 3G pitches & the ‘Pitch Improvement Programme’. Information will be given on what is involved behind the scenes in terms of what is a ‘good’ application and what is involved in making it successful to receive funding. There will be an opportunity to dispel some myths around grant funding and to provide guidance on what makes a successful funding application. We will also share some case studies of good practice from grassroots clubs locally in Surrey and across the Country.
Club & League Development
This workshop will look at opportunities for clubs & leagues to develop & continue to offer a great footballing experience and will be tailored to those attending the workshop.
Areas covered could include; i) how to increase participation & offer opportunities for all through FA initiatives such as flexible football, Wildcats Centres & Walking Football; ii) current funding pots available such as Surrey FA own pots and Football Foundation; iii) how to achieve Charter Standard for your club or league and iv) Coach Education and how to ensure that your workforce is up to date.
Attendees will have the opportunity to see the FA player registration systems and receive practical guidance about how to make the process work for their clubs/leagues. We will demonstrate the use of FA software and highlight new programmes including the innovative ‘Match day’ app.
There will also be the chance for clubs/leagues to book a bespoke training session with County staff to showcase the systems to their respective committees.
Phil Rendell (County Welfare Officer) will assist with matters of safeguarding to include discussions and practical examples in relation to understanding the DBS process, the re-launch of the FA Respect programme and will also outline best practice relating to club discipline.
