Keeping football fun since 1973...

 

Summer tournament

At Fawley Falcons we are proud to host probably the biggest and definitely the best summer youth football tournament around. To avoid disappointment we advise to get the entry forms in early, as there will be high demand and limited spaces available.

How much?

A few people have enquired as to the actual running costs of the club, in relation to how much we charge players to sign on. I have looked into this based on the financial records for the 2014-2015 season.

Covering all age groups, we had 95.625 players who paid to sign on last year (although 106 players were signed on). At £80 per person for the 2014-2015 season, the club raised £7650 from signing on fees. This is a shortfall of £832 which was not received. 

The clubs total expenditure was £23,402.33.
This includes:

  • league registrations,
  • Insurance,
  • Winter training,
  • Pitch fees,
  • Referee costs,
  • Training equipment,
  • Kits,
  • Coach & manager training
  • CRBs
  • & the costs of our tournament and presentation evenings. 

Based on these figures, it comes out at costing £221 per player for the season. Due to the club raising just over £7900 in fundraising, sponsorship & in donations (not including tournament or presentations), this can adjust the actual cost per player to £146.25

The club increased in size for the season 2015 -2016, rising to 16 teams and potentially 180 players signing on. If 9 teams cost £15,502 (106 players) then 16 teams would potentially cost £27,559 at a cost of £153 per player. A £90 signing on fee would mean the club subsidize every player £63 (meaning the club must raise £11,340 in fundraising to break even, through events like the summer tournament, presentation evening raffles etc). Hopefully this will show yourselves, and the parents of your team, how our players are getting a good deal for their money!

As a club, we try very hard to keep the costs for parents down because we strongly feel that playing football and belonging to a club should be available to all. For managers, it also reduces the need for a collection of weekly and match days subs, allowing them to focus on what is really important, the children and them playing football!

Charter Standard

charter standard

Fawley Falcons achieves another year’s charter standard accreditation

Fawley Falcons has achieved Chartered Standard status for another year. Launched in 2001, The FA Charter Standard Programme is The FA’s accreditation scheme for grassroots clubs. Its goal is to raise standards in grassroots football, and to reward clubs which prioritise child protection and high quality coaching. Maintaining the accreditation means maintaining a continual improvement within the club, in terms of coach development, sustainable financial policies, and the critical area of child safeguarding.

As reflected in the standard, Fawley Falcons invests in coaching qualifications for the coaches and managers who work across our 20 teams. All managers have attended at least the FA Level 1 in Coaching Football, with some having attended specialist youth modules or goalkeeping courses. A number of coaches will be working on the FA level 2 modules this year, to ensure we continue to improve the coaching environment for the players.

The club’s stated aim is to achieve the next level of accreditation, that of a FA Charter Standard Development Club, by the start of the 2018/19 season.

Andy Elkins, Club Chairman, said “Achieving the standards needed for FA Chartered Status reflects a lot of hard work for those at the club, and shows our commitment to delivering good quality coaching across our teams. We believe that by delivering in a safe, friendly, environment we can the fun back into football, while helping the players develop their love of the game.”

Child Welfare

The CWO (CHILD WELFARE OFFICER) is responsible for coordinating and delivering the Child Protection agenda for the Club. The safeguarding children policy, anti-bullying policy and equality policy.

We have responsible recruitment processes in place including the taking up of references and submitting appropriately qualified and checked in line with FA Charter Standard Guidelines which include  a rigorous process of checks and screening of all club managers, trainers and volunteers.

The FA Respect Programme codes of conduct

The CWO ensures that all teams operate within guidelines laid down by charter status and that the welfare and safety of children are paramount and without compromise.
