The Scottish Football Association

Standard Award

Girl 7v7s

 

The Standard Award ensures that basic club operating standards are in place. Putting basic criteria in place will make for a more robust and sustainable club strucuture. Participating clubs should consist of one or more teams.

By establishing a basic club strucuture, the Scottish FA will continue to work with clubs who wish to grow to 'Development Club' status.

 

This Standard Award is also aimed at those clubs which cannot grow their club due to geography or population but where quality of football provision is clearly visible. An example of this being clubs in the more remote areas of Scotland.
