The FA Vauxhall Youth Programme is dedicated to helping players keep playing!
The FA, in partnership with Vauxhall, has recently launched Football Mash Up, a dedicated programme aimed at 14 to 17 year old boys and girls. Dedicated after-school sessions will be delivered by FA Vauxhall Youth Football Officers typically between 4 – 6pm in a high quality football environment (5-a-side centres). The FA coach will facilitate a fun and social session where the young people will play a range of 5-a-side games, with the focus on enjoyment rather than it being excessively competitive.
At the end of the 10 week Football Mash Up sessions, The FA will work with local partners to carry on offering a format of 5-a-side football for the young people to continue enjoying and playing football on a social and recreational basis.
The FA Vauxhall Youth Officers will also be able to sign post you to different options available to stay in the game, whether it be 5-a-side football, 11-a-side club football, or trying something new like becoming a coach, referee or young leader.

If you have any questions or thoughts about how you would like to stay in the game, your FA Vauxhall Youth Officer will be very happy to help!
