SCI Commitment to Youth Football

We pride ourselves on being the leaders in Youth Football and know the importance of safety and welfare for the young people attending our Festivals. Our staff have attended and completed the F.A. Safeguarding Children Workshop and every Festival will have a member of SCI who has completed the F.A. Child Welfare Officer Workshop.


SCI is committed to following FA Guidelines on youth football and with this in mind we are introducing respect barriers at all of our SCI Youth Football Festivals. This will create a great playing atmosphere for all players to enjoy their football in.


Here at SCI we are fully committed to introducing new concepts from the F.A, this has led to us introducing 9-a-side football for boys under 11’s & 12’s teams at a few of our venues across the UK. All matches for the NEW 9-a-side concept will follow the F.A guidelines, and the pitches will of course be complete with the F.A respect barriers!!

Call us today on 01305 768555 to find out how you can join SCI for a great end of season Youth Football Festival experience.

With SCI your team can expect Professional Event Organisation, Experienced Festival Directors & Staff in attendance, Superb Pitches, Mitre Ultimatch footballs, Official Referees plus the brilliant SCI Football Celebrity Presentation Evening where every single player receives a trophy & gets to meet a top football personality – truly A Night to Remember!
