Safeguarding For 16/17 Year Olds In Open Age Football

The FA is implementing new guidance for Safeguarding 16 and 17 year olds who play in adult teams.  Adult leagues and clubs need to know these new regulations and have a plan to get them in place.

What you need to do:

  • Identify adult teams that have 16 and 17 years
  • Make sure that team managers/coaches for these teams apply for a DBS and book a place on the Safeguarding Children workshop
  • Make sure that your Whole Game System has managers/coaches listed for these teams
  • Adopt the FA Safeguarding Children policy if you don’t already have this in place
  • Recruit and train a Club Welfare Officerif you don’t already have one
  • Inform the 16/17 year olds about safeguarding
