YOUTH FOOTBALL LEAGUES IN LEICESTERSHIRE & Rutland

Youth football is no longer just about replicating the adult game with 11 v 11 in far to big goals. New formats have been introduced to encourage more touches on the ball at an earlier age with a big emphasis on a young players development.

YOUTH PLAYER DEVELOPMENT

WHY DO WE MAKE OUR KIDS PLAY LIKE ADULTS?

Let’s provide a safe and fun environment for young people to develop in football.

Leicestershire & Rutland FA encourage a modern, child-friendly approach to youth football, challenging the win-at-all-costs mentality that is stifling development and enjoyment for young people.

Working together with a proactive attitude, adults can help develop a better learning environment for young people that put their development needs at the centre of the process.
