It's about doing things properly. About making sure everyone has a chance to be involved in football, regardless of ability, race, religion or background. About encouraging and increasing the involvement of groups at all levels of football by recognising that inequalities exist and taking steps to address them. It's about making opportunities available where currently they are limited.
We are here to support your organisation in any way we can. We now have a BBFA Services Brochure "Your Journey" which is available as a snapshot of the activities and services we provide. If you have any questions or require support please contact Development@Berks-BucksFA.com
Get Into Football Leagues
As part of an ongoing commitment to the development of grassroots football, the Berks & Bucks FA are running a recreational league aimed at getting more adults to play 11 v 11. With costs soaring a large number of teams are now finding it difficult to continue. Combining that with increased work and family commitments playing 11 v 11 is becoming increasingly more difficult. Please visit our GET INTO FOOTBALL LEAGUES page.
FA Mars Just Play
Developed by The FA and supported by Adult Football Partner Mars, FA Mars Just Play! is an easy and informal opportunity for adults to play football in an enjoyable environment. Looking to play some informal football with a group of existing or new friends?... both men and women can choose how and when they want to play by just turning up or signing up on the website to a FA Mars Just Play centre, where a co-ordinator will organise games chosen by the players. For further information please visit our FA MARS JUST PLAY section.
This section is devoted to referees and includes information about all aspects of officiating. Referees perform a vital role in the game and with the growth in popularity of football the demand for match officials is increasing. For all information on refereeing please visit our REFEREES section.
FA Football Futures
Berks & Bucks are committed to recruiting new volunteers that can have a positive contribution to football across the area. We have therefore set up a volunteer ‘Football Futures Programme’ which is designed to support young volunteers (aged 14-19) and provide them with the skills and experience required to make a real difference. For all information of FOOTBALL FUTURES please visit here.
A football club is about far more than the players on the pitch. The FA is committed to supporting the volunteers in club football that make up the backbone of grassroots football. A well-run club should feature the backroom staff of a Fixtures Secretary, fundraisers, a welfare/child protection officer and a Chairperson to oversee the club’s constitution, as well as the frontline first aiders to act as physios and team coaches.
