YEL U8s results are regularly monitored and the teams are moved around ability groups to ensure that everyone gets good, close games where the emphasis is on fun and enjoyment.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

No – Scores are never published by the league and should not be at this level. Scores are collected by the league for grading purposes and to ensure children are playing at the appropriate level. FA guidelines also make it clear that scores should not be published by parents, coaches or anyone on social media.

At this level, EVERY child should be getting equal playing time when the matches are played. This is an FA guideline which every club and team should be putting into practise as this is one of the key ways a child can develop. Have a word with your coach and if this fails speak to your Club Welfare Officer.

Size 3 – these size balls are perfect to allow 7/8 year olds to continue to learn and develop as they are lighter and smaller.

Neither the YEL nor the National FA has a mandatory policy on the wearing of glasses as this is down to the individual clubs and players/parents. However, the guidance/best advice available is for them to wear specific prescription sportswear glasses. The risk is not just to them getting injured through being hit by a ball but also injuring another player through an accidental clash of heads. Speak to your club for their club policy. Cautionary Note: Any officially appointed referee does have the power to insist on the removal of any item (including day to day glasses) that they feel is a danger to the participants in a game. This is very subjective and will vary from referee to referee as to what they deem to be dangerous.
