FA Charter Standard Clubs

The FA Charter Standard Club programme was established in 2001 to provide recognition that Clubs are well run, sustainable, with child protection and safety paramount. It also recognises the club’s commitment to coaching, player and coach development and the raising of standards of behaviour in the game.

In Dorset we now have over 70 Clubs in the County that have attained this kite-mark award. We can support your Club through the process from start to finish. We also offer a Charter Standard Club Rewards Package to all clubs who have achieved the Award.

All FA Charter Standard Clubs are continuously monitored through the Dorset Charter Standard Working Party, who regularly look at issues relating to discipline, safeguarding, attending matches/training, and adherence to CS criteria. With the introduction of Annual Health Checks for Clubs, the standard of these Clubs is continuing to aid the environment that their players play.

If your Club would like to commence the process to become a recognised FA Charter Standard Club please get in touch via 01202 688279, jemma.tewkesbury@dorsetfa.com
