See the Herts Youth Inclusive Football program of events below for 2021/22 

Affiliated Football Clubs across Hertfordshire work together to run Inclusive Match Day Tournaments for inclusive teams, Football Festivals and Fun Days for young players.  Events are for boys and girls, with a disability and/or additional needs – U12’s, U16’s & U20’s.

Inclusive Football Festivals & Football Fun Days are run to encourage new players and for existing players to enjoy skills and mini matches for fun.  Mentors from existing teams are there to help and encourage new players when they first come to an event for the first time. All abilities welcome.  Siblings and player’s friends are also welcome to join in.

Match Day Tournaments are for pre-registered club players only.   If you are not a registered inclusive player, please contact your nearest inclusive team. Details here or download the HYIF booklet.

Herts Youth Inclusive Football also have an U12’s and U16’s team which is set up to take players to various Premiership tournaments and also to enter HYIF tournaments.  So if your team doesn’t have enough players, there is still a chance of playing in the tournament.

Important notes: For all events, all teams and players must be pre-registered direct with the organiser of the event.  Player details are held on a secure system via Watford FC CSE Trust for registration at Inclusive football events only and details are never shared or used for any promotional campaigns or any other use.  All players, parents, carers need to follow the latest COVID-19 government guidance and information provided by the event organiser and club hosting the event. 

All players should have a parent/carer/supervising adult with them at each event unless agreed that another adult/carer will have responsibility for the child/young adult.  Herts Youth Inclusive Football cannot take responsibility for your child/young adult at any time. 

For safeguarding reasons, photography at Herts Youth Inclusive Football events is not permitted.  Only approved event photographers can take photographs of players.  Photo permission forms from players should be completed before an event so that photographs can be used on social media and for public relations purposes relating to inclusive football only. For safeguarding reasons, do not take photographs of other children at events or upload them to social media.
