Southampton FC - Grow Your Game
Learn the Southampton Way
Hampshire FA is delighted to be supporting Southampton FC with the new Grow Your Game campaign, supporting the grassroots football community in Hampshire.
The free membership scheme is open to team coaches whose club is affiliated to Hampshire FA and offers support programmes to provide coaching education, as well as a range of fantastic experience events for grassroots teams from the 2021/22 season.
The programme, supported by Hampshire FA, will be delivered by members of the Southampton FC Academy coaching team. There will be opportunities for team coaches to engage in various coach education sessions, including live workshops and online webinars.
Coaches enrolled on the scheme will receive a bi-monthly newsletter, providing an insight into The Southampton Way with access to a range of coaching resources, such as session plans and coaching videos.
Furthermore, coaches signed up to the programme will access unique opportunities, including special ticket offers to attend both men’s and women’s first team fixtures, signed Saints merchandise, and the chance to have a coaching session delivered by Southampton FC Academy staff for your team.
Former Hampshire FA Coaching and Workforce Football Development Officer, Alice Weaving, said, "We're really excited to be working with Southampton FC on this new campaign, which will offer wider support and resources to our growing community of coaches across the county. This unique opportunity is something you don't want to miss out on.".
Mark Abrahams, Director of Business & Community Development at Southampton FC, commented, “Southampton has always had a strong reputation for its work in the community and we’re committed to expanding that approach to support grassroots football.
The National game is built on the strength of the football pyramid and the numbers of young people playing the game. Grow Your Game aims to share good practice both on & of the pitch, as well as creating unique experiences & memories for local players.”
