Community Award

Harmony Row and coaches

 

The key objective of the Community Club Award is to ensure that participants are encouraged to stay with the club and continue to play, train and compete at their chosen level whilst developing a sense of community belonging.

 

These clubs will have a minimum of eight teams representing children, youths, adults and girls/women.

The club should also seek to identify talent, develop it, and produce young players capable of performing at their maximum level.
