Huish Tigers FC have been awarded Charter Standard Club of the Year
Coaches and volunteers at Huish Tigers FC have been rewarded for their hard work, picking up Charter Standard Club of the Year at the Somerset FA awards just two years after receiving their Charter standard status.
The FA grants Charter Standards Status to Grassroots clubs that are recognised as being well run and sustainable, who prioritise quality coaching, child protection and the implementation of the FA’s Respect Programme. The FA programme aims to help raise standards of Grassroots football across local communities.
Huish Tigers FC have gone from strength to strength since receiving their Charter Status and now offer over 100 young children the opportunity to become involved in the game they love. They developed three new branches of the club this year; the incorporation of young girls aged 5-11 through the FA’s Wildcats programme, the merging with local pan-ability football side Tone Ability as well as the launch of the new Veterans team. Huish Tigers FC now offers individuals from a variety of different ages and backgrounds to get involved.
Connor Sidley-Adams, Sports Development Manager at Richard Huish College commented; ‘The outreach and community work is something that we have really focused on in recent years. We are starting to see some real successes within this not only through Huish Tigers FC but also through the Huish Tigers programme. The aim of our outreach work is to make sport as fun as possible for the young people. Being rewarded the Charter Standard of the Year award is credit to the fantastic work that the numerous volunteers put in to make our aim a reality.’
