Bergholt Heath win FA Charter Standard
West Bergholt’s own youth football Club, Bergholt Heath YFC has just received official notification that the Football Association has awarded it the prestigious “FA Charter Standard Club” accreditation.
After a long period of assessment starting some 9 months ago that included an audit of its polices & procedures, finances and of course both its youth coaching and child welfare qualifications, the Football Association has recently confirmed that Bergholt Heath now holds this official national standard.
The accreditation recognises that the Club provides structured coaching by FA qualified people for children of all ages and abilities to both train and play football in a safe environment.
Bergholt Heath is affiliated to the Essex Football Association and enters youth teams into the Colchester and District Youth Football League from the ages of 6 to 18. The Club currently has teams playing at under 8, under 10, under 12 and under 16 age groups and will be looking to add at least one more team below the current under 8 age next season (September 2015).
If you have a child interested in playing football please contact Club secretary David Bowden on 01206 241201 for further information.
