School Club Links

School Club Links

Establishing links between schools & clubs 


Establishing links between schools & clubs brings local communities together.

Most communities do not know what clubs are in their area - so working with local schools is a great way to ensure that children & young people in your area know about opportunities to participate at your club.

School Club Links encourage young people to take part in sporting and physical activity. It allows youngsters to try out new sports and feel comfortable in a club setting, making them more likely to continue participating in sport once they leave school.

FA Charter Standard Clubs all have to form a link with a school as part of the process of securing their Charter Standard status too.

For a school looking to develop your community links, this is a great place to start!
