Potton United Youth (formerly Potton Colts) is an FA Charter Standard Club

The FA Charter Standard kitemark is awarded to football clubs who provide a high quality football experience. FA Charter Standard clubs are proven to be well run, sustainable, and importantly place child protection, quality coaching and safety paramount.

Once awarded, FA Charter Standard clubs and leagues are given an annual health check to ensure the standards of provision are maintained. Kitemark awards can be withdrawn if a club has a poor disciplinary record, fails to attend in-service FA Charter Standard events or is unable to continue to meet the criteria.

  • A trained Welfare Officer

  • CRB-checked volunteers

  • Emergency Aid-trained volunteers linked to each team

  • Respect programme sign-up,

  • A Level One coach for each youth team,

  • Appropriate club administration in place and a volunteer co-ordinator.
