We are very proud to announce that we have been awarded the 3 star highest accreditation by England Football, which has replaced the FA Charter Standard Scheme awarded to qualifying clubs for the past 20 years.
England Football announced the changes as part of The FA re branding “On-pitch and off-pitch criteria is the foundation to providing safe, respectful and inclusive pathways and environments for the game of football in England. In addition, we recognise Clubs that provide one or more of the accredited player pathways, either for male, or female, or for disability players. The star that a club achieves and is then recognised for, demonstrates that they have football teams within their set-up that support the three accredited player pathways. It helps us to align the relevant support and services you need to become the best version of the Club”.
A small group of volunteers work endlessly to provide the best for our players, supported by the volunteer managers, coaches, admin teams and supporters, and we continue to do this for the future of all the footballers of our local community.
If you can spare a couple of hours a week to help behind the scenes, in areas such as fund raising, social media marketing and book keeping please contact us
Beacon Hill Junior FC and Hindhead Athletic FC merge to form Beacon Hill Football Club
There’s good news for football in the Beacon Hill, Hindhead and surrounding area, as Beacon Hill Junior Football Club and Hindhead Athletic FC have merged to provide football for all, from age five right through to adults and vets!
The rebranded Beacon Hill FC club now has over 440 members covering all ages including 120 female players and 58 coaches.
This week the club launched a brand new logo to create a new symbol of the combined clubs integrating both the stag of Hindhead Athletic FC and the green and black of the old Junior club.
“By merging our resources and our teams we are now able to offer a pathway for 16–18 year old players as they leave junior football and move to adult football. Previously players have drifted away to other clubs or given up playing altogether, now we can offer continuity and support as a single club.”, said Mark Babb, Director of Men’s football at BHFC.
Alex Gowing, Chair at Beacon Hill FC, said “Combing our two clubs brings so many additional benefits to our members. We can help our adult teams access additional facilities and resources. We also have the opportunity to apply for extra funding as a more inclusive club, we can grow by adding more teams with a greater number of age groups and offerings for all abilities. This season we have been able to add a second Men’s team doubling the number of men playing football at the club. Some of these players are now helping to coach the younger players. Next stop is adding our first Women’s team!”
The new 2021/22 season is now underway and as we return to grassroots games up and down the country it is important that we update everyone on the Respect codes of conduct that need to be adhered to.
As a parent of a youth player, creating a fun, safe and inclusive environment for all on and off the pitch can make a difference, therefore it is important that we follow the codes of conduct set for us.
The Respect codes of conduct are in place to ensure that everyone involved within grassroots football is playing their part to give everyone a positive experience.
