Welcome to the page of the BBFA Youth Network
“Giving young people a voice across Berks & Bucks”
The BBFA Youth Network is a collective of passionate and enthusiastic young people who want to make a difference to youth football across Berks & Bucks.
Within Berks & Bucks we have over 2300 youth teams that exist to provide footballing opportunities for young people. Over recent years we have witnessed young people taking on more responsibility within the game and becoming involved in areas such as refereeing, coaching, volunteering and marketing. The Youth Network provides a platform for those young people to share their ideas, gain experience and work with other like-minded young people with the support of the BBFA to plan and deliver projects.
Example projects and opportunities could include:
- Overseeing our 'Young Volunteer Programme'
- SEN schools festivals
- Youth engagement projects
- Supporting Wildcats provision
- Supporting regional Futsal events
- Attending Council meetings
Members of the BBFA Youth Council will also receive a benefits package (coming Summer 2020) which will include aspects such as:
- Branded Nike Kit
- CPD training opportunities
- Work placements and internships
- Attendance at the national FA Leadership Academy at St. Georges Park
- Reference and CV support
- Travel bursary
