Introduction

Contemporary Studies in Physical Education For Football I will research the following information on the governing/organising body. This is the England and Wales Football Association known as the FA. I will include their general details, the structure, coaching awards, schemes, competitions and their doping control and testing procedures. Address: The Football Association, 25 Soho Square, London, WID 4FA Website: www.the-fa.org Regional Structure The FA started in 2001 the FA Charter Standard. The programme, supported by England Team sponsor Nationwide, was launched in February 2001, with the aim of setting standards of coaching, administration and child protection for clubs working with young people. The programme is aimed at boys and girls under sixteen years old and will help children and parents find a club in their local area that meets F.A. standards. They have yearly Regional Awards held at Soho Square. The awards are divided into four categories and were selected by The F.A. Charter Standard working party, chaired by F.A. Council Member and Dorset F.A. Secretary Peter Hough. The categories are: Charter Standard Club, Development Club, Coach and Administrator, and nominations were received via County Football Associations across the country. ...read more.

Regional and National Competitions There are many different competitions set up by the English FA. There is the FA County Youth Cup, which was launched in 1944-45 by The Football Association to provide representative football for the best young players who had not signed up with professional clubs. Players are under the age of 18 and are affiliated to County Football Associations. There also is the FA Youth Challenge Club which ha been very successful for skilled school leavers who find it difficult to find a senior team to play for. In 1999, 312 clubs entered, with three qualifying rounds preceding six proper rounds and the semi-final and a two-legged final. The players selected must be under the age of 18 as at midnight on the 31 August of the current season. A player who is 18 or over on this date is not eligible to participate in the competition. Paul Gascoigne, Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt and George Best have all played in FA Youth Cup-winning sides. In 1969 The Football Association introduced The FA Challenge Trophy, a knockout competition for non-League clubs with the incentive of an appearance at Wembley for the finalists. ...read more.

Conclusion

It can go from, House Level in Secondary School, to College Level, to County Level and Finally Regional Level. So players in performance ability levels are very varied to the standard of the players. Then there is Excellence where players are reaching nationally and internationally recognised standards of performance for country or professional level. For example playing for any of the four professional divisions of football or for England. I am at the performance level and I feel that is where I will stay I am currently playing at college level and I am not to far off county level, but I think I would have been in the county team by now if I was going to be. My goal when I was younger was to achieve excellence but now I have realised I am happy with my performance. I have had help from coaches over my footballing career since when I started at around 6. Until now at college is where I have received some proper coaching, as before the coaches before haven't had the right training or football knowledge. I feel that if I had sufficient coaching previously I may have progressed further up the pyramid; also there aren't as many professional clubs in the area that means I would have had a greater chance of being scouted by some clubs. ...read more.
