The FA realise that for a variety of reasons teenagers drop out of playing regular club football, but still love the ‘beautiful game.’ There can be many factors why you just want to play socially whether it is part-time employment, homework, exams and other reasons for having less time to commit, or simply because it’s not as fun as it used to be. Whatever the reason we do not want that to result in you have to stop playing altogether.
The FA have developed Mash Up to encourage boys and girls aged 14-16 years old who have dropped out of regular football to get back into the game, basically a kick-about, overseen by an FA Licensed Coach who will ensure that the sessions are fun, safe and sociable with you and your friends getting to choose how you would like to play.
