Most communities do not know what clubs are in their area - so working with local schools is a great way to ensure that children & young people in your area know about opportunities to participate at your club.
School-club links encourage young people to take part in sporting and physical activity. It allows youngsters to try out new sports and feel comfortable in a club setting, making them more likely to continue participating in sport once they leave school.
FA Charter Standard Clubs all have to form a link with a school as part of the process of securing their Charter Standard status too.
For a school looking to develop your community links, this is a great place to start!
