Dear Colleague,

The Craven, Aire and Wharfe Junior Football League in partnership with the West Riding County FA are holding an FA Junior Football Leaders (JFL) course for aspiring young leaders on Wednesday 16th April, 2014 10am – 4:30pm at Salts Sports Association, Victoria Road, Shipley, BD18 3LA.

This course is completely free of charge to candidates thanks to funding secured through the FA Football Futures League Development Fund to deliver this programme. The course is open to candidates aged between 14 and 18 years old who have a real interest and passion for football and want to get involved in club / league activity away from just the playing side. This course provides a basic introduction to leadership skills required when involved in football. The course will primarily introduce 4 areas: Assisting Football Activity Sessions, An introduction to refereeing, Helping with a Team & Different Football Events – in addition to these areas, Respect, Promoting the Game & Developing the game will be embedded. Following the 6 hour course, candidates are required to complete 4 hours voluntary work experience within a club or league setting. This will be arranged by West Riding County FA, Craven, Aire and Wharfe JFL and the relevant FA Charter Standard Club. Upon completion of the course and work experience, all candidates will receive a certificate and individual action plan for future development. In line with the funding received through The FA Football Futures League Development Fund, the Craven, Aire and Wharfe JFL plan to establish their first ever Youth League Committee. The hope is that a number of candidates from the JFL course will show and desire and willingness to join this committee and can therefore become a part of this very exciting new initiative. The course is open to a maximum of 32 candidates. Candidates must be involved with a club who play their football within the Craven, Aire and Wharfe JFL. To register candidates on this course, we require the club secretary, C, A & W League team manager or parent of the candidate to complete the attached registration form and return it via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Places will be given on a first come first serve basis; the deadline for submission of candidate registration forms is Friday 4th April 2014.  

Regards

What a GREAT day out we had at Burnley.

We had 3 coaches take over 170 people to the Burnley v Leeds game.

Our Junior players enjoyed various activities including some coaching sessions in the Elite Training Centre. SJFC Burnley-110The players all seemed to enjoy the sessions and took part in a number of exercieses and small sided games.

On the pitch we had members taking part in a pre-match pitch parade, some were flag bearers as the players came onto the pitch, we had some do a half time pitch parade and our younger players got to play a mini match on the Turf Moor pitch at half time.

We have a selection of photo's on our FACEBOOK page so go take a look.

As you may be aware we are asking our open age managers to stand down at the end of the season. There are a couple of reasons for this. In our club contitution it states that if a challenge is made for a managers role then the candidates will go up for a vote by current paid up members. We have recently had a few names put in the hat for various managers jobs so this has triggered the option to open up the position for new managers.
The club are also trying to gain a higher level of Charter Standard which would require us to re-align the managers role to a specific job description and we see this as the correct time to do that to avoid us having to do it again mid season.

We are now asking current managers and players if they wish to apply for the role of Open Age Team Manager as specified in the Managers Job Description document, available from the link below or by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

Applications need to be returned by 20th April 2014
Any questions about the reasons and process please contact a member of the Core Committee named below.
