21st August 2020 Herts Youth Inclusive Football – Corona Virus – COVID-19 update

We hope everyone is safe and staying well. 

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we took the decision to cancel all tournaments, festivals and other events we were involved in for the rest of the 2019/20 football season.  

We are still taking guidance from the FA and working towards a return in October 2020.  This will be a staggered return initially with some friendlies.  The HYIF committee are working hard to ensure best practice is in place ready for a return to tournaments early 2021. 

If you don’t already, please follow Herts Youth Inclusive Football on Facebook and @herts_youth on twitter.

Please continue to follow all the government guidelines, your club guidelines and stay safe.

All the best from The Herts Youth Inclusive Football Committee.

Two films about Herts Youth Inclusive Football here and here.

Herts Youth Inclusive Football organises regular Match Day Tournaments for inclusive teams to play matches and also runs regular Inclusive Football Festivals and Football Fun Days across Hertfordshire to encourage more players of all abilities to try football.   

Through our partnership with Watford FC CSE Trust there are some fantastic opportunities for players throughout the season, including being chosen to play for Watford FC CSE Trust Inclusive or to play for Herts Youth Inclusive Football, and play against other premiership teams.  

Being involved with Herts Youth Inclusive Football gives players of all abilities the opportunity to play sport, make friends, have fun and enjoy other social activities linked to football.

Herts Youth Inclusive Football are committed to supporting players with a disability and/or additional needs to play football.  We also support clubs to start inclusive teams and provide advice and support to coaches and anyone else involved in Inclusive Football.

We continue to strive to grow Inclusive, pan disability football across Hertfordshire.  Please get in touch to find out more.
