Hampshire FA Launches New Youth Engagement Project of the Year Award

Hampshire FA has introduced the new Youth Engagement Project Award for the 2023-24 season.

The award is open to all Hampshire FA clubs and/or leagues, welcoming members from across the county to put forward their nominations and best practice examples to be considered for the award.

As this is a new (pilot) award for the 2023-24 season, the county FA also welcomes submissions from the 2022-23 season to ensure we can maximise the opportunities for members to nominate. The conditional requirement is that the youth engagement project nominated MUST still be active within the club or league in the current season.

Nomination examples can be in the form of establishing a youth committee, organising a consultation event, allowing young people in your set-up to lead on an event or allowing them to create and execute a campaign on behalf of the club. The nomination process is flexible to allow everyone the opportunity of listing varied examples of work.

Please note that only one award is available for one club or league based in Hampshire and affiliated to Hampshire FA. The club and/or league must be able to demonstrate how their project has made an impact in terms of youth engagement for the club or league.
