TROPHY EVENT FINAL

WHAT IS A TROPHY EVENT?

Leagues will have flexibility during the blocks of competition to organise different events that still promote the importance of winning and losing but build this progression as players get older. Leagues cannot publish league tables throughout the season up to U11 as part of the new approach to a child-friendly competition. However, they will be able to promote and publicise the winners of the different competitions.

The new approach to youth football will phase out the one ‘season-long competition’ for young players and bring in a mixture of learning opportunities. This will provide youth leagues with the ownership to run different approaches to competition that capture the attention of young players in modern way. This will allow recognition of winners where appropriate but without the pressure of three points and goal difference on the children every week for 26 weeks.

The FA has found from research that one of the main reasons children drop out of football is due to increased pressure from adults on the expectations to win every week. Being creative with competition and building development as the children get older is a great way to keep children playing football longer. Furthermore, this variety will give children the excitement of looking forward to what happens next – the new format of the game and new competitions to play in!

This becomes like an addictive computer game for children, “We have completed this level. What might I find on the next level?”. Currently, we provide children with the same experience year-on-year and wonder why many drop out the game at 14-18 after six to ten years of doing the same thing over and over again!
