We are proud to announce that Southwater Royals has been awarded 3 star accreditation by Football England. The Football England accreditation has replaced the Charter Standard scheme awarded to qualifying football clubs for the past twenty years.
Changes to the grassroots football club accreditation scheme were announced last year as part of The FA's rebranding. These changes have been brought in as a foundation to safe, respectful and inclusive pathways and environments for the game of football in England. In addition the FA want to recognise Clubs that provide one or more of the accredited player pathways, either for male, or female, or for disability players. In the FA's words "The star that a club achieves and is then recognised for, demonstrates that they have football teams within their set-up that support the three accredited player pathways. It helps us to align the relevant support and services you need to become the best version of the Club".
Southwater Royals is lucky to have a small group of dedicated volunteers working tirelessly to provide the best for all of our players. This includes the Managers, Coaches, the Senior Management Committee and other volunteers who assist in valuable areas. If you can spare a couple of hours a week and would like to be a part of this thriving football club please speak to your team Manager or a Committee member.
