Get Accredited - Standard Award

The central aim of the Club Accreditation Programme is to increase regular participation among boys and girls. This will be achieved through clubs delivering a quality assured football programme. Therefore all junior clubs must achieve standard award accreditation in order to participate in a junior league. Here we provide you some simple steps to becoming accredited on the scheme:

  1. Your Junior Football League Secretary will issue a Club Accreditation form to all clubs when asked to register to the league. This is usually done at the Junior League AGM but make sure your contact your League Secretary to confirm. Forms are then to be completed and returned in accordance with respective Junior League Club Accreditation administration timelines. Emails for all league secretaries can be found below.
  2. All junior clubs must upload their details onto the ‘FAW Junior Football Portal’. A club’s ‘portal pages’ must be completed by the 31st August. The league Secretary (or other) will be able to access a read only version for registration to the Club Accreditation Scheme for league affiliation purposes. Guidance on how to do this can be found here.
  3. The Junior League will decide whether the club has achieved the minimum requirement of standard award and is therefore eligible to partake in structured fixtures. All clubs will retain the same level of accreditation received in the 2014/15 season if they are accepted into their Junior League for the 2015/16 season.
  4. If your club wishes to progress to the next level of award (Gold, Silver or Bronze) then it will be provided the opportunity from November 1st 2015 to January 31st 2016. To find out how to progress through the levels of club accreditation click here.
  5. As part of McDonald’s sponsorship of the grassroots programme within Wales they are awarding a free kit for every club that becomes accredited on the programme. For more details on this fantastic opportunity click here.
