We are seeking individuals from across grassroots football to join our Council and help develop football in our region.
The Council represents football in our county and members contribute by providing first-hand knowledge and experience to help to inform plans, priorities, and programmes.
As such we currently have 12 elected council members vacancies, and we would welcome nominations from groups who are currently under represented on our Council.
Who should apply?
The modernisation of our structure provides an ideal opportunity for a wider range of voices to be heard. Football in our region is played by people from many different backgrounds and we are keen to ensure that our Council better represents the diversity of football in our county so that we can continue to develop the game for all.
In particular, the rapid growth in female participation across football in recent years means that we are particularly keen for more women to be involved in our Council, giving their unique perspective on the challenges facing this specific area of the game.
Whatever background they may come from, it is vital for prospective Council Members to be dedicated supporters of local grassroots football. Their role is to add value through expert first-hand knowledge, ensuring the Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA is connected to its products, programmes, and people and serving its participants, volunteers and coaches.
This does not mean you need to have run a club or league before, and this could be your first formal role in the game. You do however need to have significant experience of grassroots football in our region.
Most importantly, you will care deeply about making a difference to how football is developed in our county and be able to represent the views of those within the area of the game for which you are looking to be nominated.
What does the role involve?
The Council Member role adds value to the Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA. The core requirement is to attend four Council meetings a year and if required to engage in a working group looking at the specific area of the game you represent.
How does someone get nominated?
In order to be nominated you will first need to have the support of two Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA affiliated clubs.
As a first step we would suggest approaching clubs and discussing your intention to stand, your suitability for the role and if they are willing to support your nomination.
Once you have this confirmed you can complete the form below to provide us with your contact details and those of whoever has agreed to put you forward. Clubs must also confirm their support for your nomination via a short confirmation email to the County FA. Clubs may only nominate one candidate.
Please be aware that nominations close on Monday 10th January 2022 at 5pm
