Young Volunteers

The Hunts FA Football Futures programme is intended to support young people interested in volunteering in football by rewarding them for their volunteering and providing opportunities for them to receive training, gain experience and meet other young volunteers in the game.

Football Futures is currently open to any young person in Huntingdonshire between the ages of 14 and 24. Young people are encouraged to volunteer in one or more of the following themes:

Coaching and working with teams

  • Refereeing
  • Running and supporting events
  • Promoting the game (media)
  • Respect ambassador
  • Running and developing the game

Volunteering is a great addition to any young person’s CV and brings its own rewards, but being part of the Hunts FA Football Futures programme also gives some extra benefits which you can find in side our Football Futures guide.
