FA Chartered Status
Mayford are proud to have achieved FA Chartered Status.
The FA Charter Standard programme supported by McDonald’s is a kitemark, which recognises and rewards high quality levels of provision in club and league football. The kitemark is awarded to clubs and leagues that are well run, sustainable, which place child protection, quality coaching and safety paramount.
The criteria is challenging and once awarded, FA Charter Standard clubs are given an annual health check to ensure the standards of provision are maintained.
Criteria for achieving the entry level award include having a trained Welfare Officer, CRB checks for all volunteers, Emergency Aid-trained volunteers linked to each team, Respect programme sign-up, a Level One coach for each youth team, appropriate club administration in place and a volunteer co-ordinator.
The benefits for an FA Charter Standard club include free tickets upon application for England youth and women’s internationals, local in-service FA/McDonald’s coaching events, administration support sessions and support with funding applications.
By achieving an FA Charter Standard Club Award, Mayford are demonstrating to all members, parents, sponsors and the public, that we are a well-organised, safe Club offering opportunities for all.
