See the Herts Youth Inclusive Football program of events below for 2019 

Affiliated Football Clubs across Hertfordshire work together to run Inclusive Match Day Tournaments for club inclusive teams and Football Festivals for young players, boys and girls, aged 6-16 and 16-25, with a disability and/or additional needs.

Inclusive Football Festivals are run to encourage new players and for 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 a Football Festival. All abilities welcome.  Siblings and player’s friends are also welcome to join in the at the Football Festivals.

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

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 are not shared or used for any promotional campaigns. 

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

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.
