FA Charter

Achieving The Charter

Hutton Football Club is proud of the fact that we have achieved the F.A. community Charter Standard for Youth Football.

The charter is actually split into three levels of recognition, comprising of :-

a) Charter Standard Club
b) Charter Standard Development Club
c) Charter Standard Community
Hutton FC are one of very few clubs in the whole of Essex to achieve the highest level of the FA Charter Standard.
Meeting the criteria for this award clearly illustrates our comittment to ensure that all children within the club receive the highest level of management and training and that all club staff act in the childrens best interest.

Some other quotes from Premiership players :-

Graeme Le Saux
“As a parent I am pleased to support The F.A. Charter Standard for Clubs and its commitment to raising standards and recognising good practice for young players at all levels”.

Gareth Southgate
“As a father I am delighted that The F.A. Charter Standard for Clubs recognises the importance of Child Protection Training and Codes of Conduct in the successful development of youth football at all levels”.

Jamie Redknapp
“My dad knew where to send me to get a proper football education but most mums and dads aren’t so lucky. That’s why The F.A. Charter Standard for clubs is such a good idea. For the first time, parents will know the best clubs in their local area to coach their children”.

Mo Marley Everton FC and England Women’s Captain
“This project will increase the opportunities for girls to play football and will help the development of women’s football as a sport in this country”.

Raising The Standard in Clubs

The F.A. Charter Standard Clubs programme, supported by England Team Sponsor Nationwide, was launched in February 2001 with the aim of setting standards of coaching, administration and child protection for clubs working with young people.

The programme is aimed at boys and girls under sixteen years old and will help children and parents find a club in their local area that meets F.A. standards.

The project is at the heart of The Football Association’s investment programme for grassroots football that will see £32 million spent this year to improve facilities and coaching across the country.
