Football opportunities in Primary and Secondary Schools
Often schools provide the first introduction to football for children.
Schools football in Herefordshire is ran through the Herefordshire Schools FA, the local affiliate to the English Schools FA, they oversee both Primary and Secondary football within the county.
The Herefordshire Schools FA has a season long events calendar which includes futsal, mini soccer, 11v11, disability and representative football. The HSFA is also responsible for organising a variety of different festivals, tournaments and cups throughout the season for boys and girls.
HSFA primary & Secondary Events
The Herefordshire Schools FA have a proud tradition of organising events across both primary and secondary schools across the year to try and provide as many opportunities as possible. Year on year the HSFA look to grow schools football and allow more children the access to represent their schools.
For primary schools, the HSFA run tournaments and festivals throughout the year across all age groups and for both boys and girls. Events are either competition based which either qualifies a team for regional or win a trophy or participation which aims to get children out being active through playing football.
Secondary schools have leagues which run from January to March/April, with then finals for each age group in May. Leagues run for all age groups and across boys and girls. For the first time this year, girls in our secondary schools will all have an opportunity to represent their school in football. The HSFA also run a Rural Cup competition in Year 9.
We host the finals for both primary and secondary schools at Hereford FC's Edgar Street stadium.
