Youth Clubs and Leagues

There is 1 Youth League and 1 Mini Soccer League affiliated directly to Huntingdonshire FA that provide Mini Soccer to Youth Football participation. In addition there are Mini Soccer/Youth Leagues in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire which our clubs also play in.

As part of the FA Charter Standard Leagues Programme, all of the leagues affiliated in Huntingdonshire have been awarded the FA's Charter Standard League Status. This demonstrates that they are committed to implementing the contents of their League Development Plans into Grassroots Football which have been constructed alongside the Huntingdonshire FA Football Development Team.

With the Youth Football Review due to be implemented from season 2013/14, there has never been a more exciting time to get into grassroots football. Small sided formats such as 5v5 are at the forefront of delivery within our mini-soccer league, designed to increase number of touches of the ball, develop confidence and skill in 1v1 situations which will assist in the long term player development of young footballers in Huntingdonshire. Central to the Youth review is the ability to enable players and parents to enjoy a fun, high quality game in a safe environment where they can play, learn and watch grassroots football.

The work of League Committee Members often goes on behind the scenes and is a vital part of delivering Grassroots Football. Huntingdonshire football development team provides Youth Leagues with resources and advice which assist in the following areas:

  • Increase Participation throughout the Game
