Community Standard ......

In 2009 Welland Junior Football Club was appointed a Community Club by the FA. To achieve this prestigious award the Club had to build upon the foundations of the Charter Standard scheme in placing the Club at the heart of their community.

As a Community Club we have achieved the pinnacle of the club development pathway by developing a high quality, multi-team (minimum of 10 teams) set up with excellent social, training and playing opportunities for all. As such, the number of Community Clubs is one of the truest measures of success for The FA Football Development strategy.

To become an FA Community Club we are required to meet FA criteria, ensuring we provide opportunities for players irrespective of age, gender, religion and ability. We also have to provide qualified coaches, first aiders and child protection officers.
