County FA ahead of the game with annual health checks

Mon 7th Feb 2011 | Football Governance

Sheffield & Hallamshire FA are number one in the country for completing Charter Standard annual health checks/renewals with a total of 91 clubs completing the process to date.

The FA announced a number of changes back in July 2009 to make improvements and update the national Charter Standard scheme including the introduction of annual health checks this season 2010/11 for all clubs.  The annual health checks replace the three year renewal requirement previously in place. 

The development team have a further 40 clubs to administer through the process and are well on the way to a 100% completion before the 31st March 2011.  Sheffield & Hallamshire FA have streamlined the process for its clubs making the process as easy as possible. 

The team targeted clubs by league and set designated dates by which the clubs need to have completed their renewal.  By setting these dates’ clubs have a deadline to work towards to collect all the necessary information and make sure volunteers have attended required workforce education courses. 

Sheffield & Hallamshire FA thanked the Leagues for their support with the new process, which has contributed to this positive start.  The Leagues have been extremely positive and have effectively communicated and worked with their respective clubs to complete their health checks or sign posted clubs to liaise with the relevant development team staff.

Matt Handley, Football Development Officer said “As a County FA we see these renewals as a great opportunity to work closer with local adult, youth Leagues and Clubs. These new relationships can only amalgamate the current interaction we have and support the development of football in the area and offer even more opportunities to get involved at a variety of levels”.
