An exciting opportunity to become a member of the SHCFA Disability Football Development Group

This is an exciting opportunity to become a member of the Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA Disability Football Development Group. The group will play a crucial role in transforming the disability football landscape across this region.

The Sheffield and Hallamshire CFA is a Company Limited by guarantee and a registered charity. We exist to lead football locally. Making football easy to access and creating a safe and enjoyable experience FOR ALL.

The Disability Football Development Group will be expected to meet a few times during the season & it is possible we may invite guest speakers to join as part of the group. The first meeting will be held at SHCFA but they could be based around different areas of the County in the future.

The role of the disability football development group will be:

  • To share local plans for disability football including those of: The County FA, Grassroots leagues, FA competitions & Talent Identification
  • To check & challenge the Counties plans for the development of disability football
