Tots Programme

The Programme Was Introduced Last Season To Support Charter Standard Clubs That Deliver Entry Level Programmes For U5 And U6’S To Sustain A Pool Of New Players, Introduce Them Into Football & Transition Them Into U7 Teams Playing In A Developmental League System.  

All Hampshire FA approved Tots centres are subject to FA Safeguarding requirements with all coaches/deliverers undergoing an FA Enhanced CRC check with the Children's Barred List via the Disclosure & Barring Service. 

This is quality assured through Hampshire FA spot visits and means parents can feel confident that their children are experiencing football for the first time in a safe environment.

The programme also enables future coaches to be identified early and supported through an FA Playmaker course and free membership with the Hampshire FA Coaches Community.

This ongoing support network and direction to appropriate qualifications will mean the coaches are ready to hit the ground running with the newly formed U7 team the following season.

Clubs: 62 

U5: 47 teams/376 players

U6: 77 teams/616 players
