Charter Standard

FA Charter Standard - Pitstone and Ivinghoe JFC
What is Charter Standard?

We were very proud to have received the prestigious FA Charter Standard Club award in February 2004. This is a scheme introduced by the Football Association in 2001 with three main aims, to recognise good practice, raise standards and reward quality in grassroots football.

In order to achieve this award we had to demonstrate that we are a well organised club ensuring child protection is paramount and we now undertake a continuous review of all aspects of the way the club is administered and managed to ensure that these standards are maintained and improved.

We have an ongoing education programme which enables us to provide FA qualified coaches for all age groups. As well as good practice in football coaching skills, this qualification also includes courses on Child Protection and First Aid.

The club now has approximately 20 FA Level 1 Coaches and plans to send more coaches on Level 2 courses during the coming seasons.

We take our Charter Standard mark very seriously and all players, managers, coaches and spectators should read our Codes of Conduct thoroughly so that they know what is expected of them.
