Many grassroots teams tend to recruit from a fairly small group of people – friends, family and work colleagues.
Hampshire FA can extend the range of your recruitment by using our Communication Channels (website, Facebook, Twitter, noticeboard, local news, etc.) to advertise on your behalf. Check out Hampshire FA's Marketing pages for more details.
Hampshire FA is keen to work with adult clubs to setup Youth Club Links with suitable clubs in the local area which will aid the transition of players from youth to adult football. The Club Development Fund can also be used to facilitate this.
Football teams are often unsure of where they can find new players, Hampshire FA work with and deliver football in a variety of different organisations - Universities, Colleges, Recreational/Drop-In Centres - across the county and can offer you access to these players and signpost them to you.
Sometimes in extreme circumstances Merging Clubs is the only viable option to keep the players involved in the game.
Hampshire FA can identify suitable partnerships and facilitate the process; again the Club Development Fund can be used for financial support if necessary.
