Hampshire FA monitor the teams in each league on FA Full Time and the division they play in. The information is compiled onto a spreadsheet along with 9 different characteristics which are: cancellation of fixtures, struggling to field a full team, no contact with league/referee/opponent, poor organisation on match days, late kick-offs, excessive admin fines and/or non-payments, loss of playing or training venue, resignation / retirement of key volunteers and lastly host pub/business closing down.
League secretaries are then sent the compiled spreadsheet and are asked to rate their teams based on the characteristics.
E.g. if a team has cancelled one or more fixtures, they will be indicated as 'at risk'. The spreadsheet is then sent back to Hampshire FA. All teams 'at risk' are then grouped together based on where they require support such as 'player recruitment' 'admin support', 'funding' or 'facilities'. Infographics are then circulated to the teams directly to offer guidance on how Hampshire FA can support them based on their 'at risk' status. This is then followed up with an email if there has been no communication.
Hampshire FA will review the current process in the 2018/19 season. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated regarding the current process. Please email your feedback to: Pedro.Viveiros@HampshireFA.com.
