On Saturday 6th October prior to our 1st team home game against Probus, St Day AFC club officals, players and youth players were presented with the Charter Standard Award, by Cornwall FA Vice-Chairman Mr David Bray.
The Charter Standard Scheme is best practice guide that sets standards of coaching, administration and child protection for all clubs outside the Football League and Premier League. As a benchmark for quality, it will improve the playing experience for all. The FA, in conjunction with various bodies, has drawn up the following set of criteria for clubs wishing to reach Charter Standard: A written constitution, FA CRB checked volunteers, All managers to have minimum of FA Level 1 Coaching Course, Commitment to attend in-service training, Acceptance and promotion of Codes of Conduct, Commitment to provide Mini-Soccer opportunities for Under 10s, Commitment to promote schools liaison and equal opportunities for all.
There are four levels to the charter standard award, adult, club, developing and community. The award that we have been recognized for is because of the adult and youth set up on show here at St Day. The overall aim is to acquire community charter standard, which is awarded to clubs with 10 teams at all levels including a disability team.
This opens many doors for the whole club to new grants and really shows the standard of St Day FC as a whole. We are very proud of our award.
