Secretaries Report – Ian Woods

 

  • The possible use of Beaumont grass pitches was discussed in the previous meeting: the school are currently not hiring out the grass pitches, but this is subject to change.
  • Any teams that are NOT planning on continuing into the 2018/19 season then can they let Ian know as soon as possible.
  • The club are still looking for volunteers to run the catering at both the boys and girls summer club tournaments. We need a response by next week, please get in touch with Ian if interested.
  • Samuel Ryder Astro should be available for usage next season. We are hoping to be able to rely on just Nicholas Breakspear and Samuel Ryder for all training slots, this should help continue the club player pathway plan. (See Mervyn item)

Safeguarding

Safeguarding Course @ Nicholas Breakspear

11 April 7:00pm

To book a Safeguarding Course go to: http://www.hertfordshirefa.com/coaches/development-and-courses/fa-safeguarding-children-workshop

You will recall that before Christmas the Herts FA carried out a verification visit to Nicholas Breakspear (one of our training nights) to check that all involved are (1) tagged to the team and (2) had an in date and valid DBS. The results, although in the context of the size of the club are not too bad, they were still embarrassing for the club as the audit found a couple of people helping teams that we did not have any records for (i.e. no DBS). Given that this is raised at every meeting and all the details are published it is a disappointment. The County FA have advised all clubs that they will be carrying out further verification audits in the coming weeks.

Safeguarding Courses, there face to face courses available, go to the Herts FA website for details. The FA have tweaked the Safeguarding process for recertification somewhat, the full details are on the website but providing your first Safeguarding qualification was the ‘Face to Face’ then you can renew via the online option as many times as your involvement in the game lasts. (or until the procedure is altered in the future)

Just another reminder please check that your Safeguarding certification is up to date, if not then please put it right. To check go to the Herts FA website and log into Members Services with your FAN Number.

Remember:

1. The individual stops any involvement as a coach until he has a valid DBS

2. If you have a parent who wishes to get more involved and wishes to help out then before the start they must have a DBS Check

For any of the above contact Ian or Mervyn to start the DBS process.

Additional Welfare Office

As you will all know a club of the size of City Youth needs more than one trained Welfare officer, we currently have two (Ian Woods and Mervyn Morgan), I am pleased to announce that we will shortly be having a third, Chris Samways, one of the clubs Community Coaches has agreed to attend a Welfare Officers training course at the end of March.

Club Business Manager

As you know I am trying to off load some of the behind the scenes work that I do for the club, with this in mind the I have been working with Laurence Wilson, who has agreed to become the clubs Business Manager. Laurence will be looking after the day to day organisation of many of our projects. Between now and the start of next season I will be meeting with Laurence on a regular basis to implement systems and to hand over various chunks of the work.

Back to the top

Samuel Ryder Academy

Update, Planning Permission has been granted, the Football Foundation has agreed funding, City Youth agreed to support the project with a contribution of £40,000. This is in addition to contributions from the School PTA and other bodies. However, there was still a small shortfall, so the club have agreed to increase their contribution by an additional £5,000. Hopefully work should commence in the next 6 to 8 weeks. A big thank you to the Samuel Ryder Head Matt Gauthier and his team for some great work in getting the project to this position.

Back to the top

Training Slots for Season 2018/19

Our new Business Manager Laurence Wilson will be starting work on next seasons training allocations shortly. Mervyn Morgan and Geoff Watts will be meeting with Laurence to discuss the process. One point I must highlight is that once slots have been agreed teams cannot change their mind and ask for a change, the process for this season was complicated by some teams asking for several changes, this makes the whole process unworkable. A word of warning, Laurence is a detail person, he will contact each manager, they must respond, if they don’t the team will be allocated a slot.

First Aid Courses

Several managers need to renew their First Aid Qualification, there are courses available on the Herts FA Website, go to:

Online Player Registration System

The new online system for Club Player Registration has gone well this season. Parents who paid via the two instalment option have had the second payment requested.

This years Presentation day will take place at the Alban Arena on Saturday 16th June. As in previous years it will be over three sessions and we will be publishing the age groups for each session in the coming weeks.

As in previous years each team has a page in the Presentation Day Programme, this comprises of a team writeup and team photograph, for the new managers and example of a previous years programme is available if you click on this link : https://www.cityyouthfc.co.uk/images/downloads/Presentation%20Day%20Draft%20programme%202016%20final%20200616.pdf

Young Saints Membership Scheme.

The club is committed to working closely with our local schools and clubs, such as St Albans City F.C, hence the chance to be part of the saint’s supporters club. The Young Saints enables children to attend up to five league matches free of charge, with an accompanying adult paying half-price on each occasion, making local live football both affordable and hopefully enjoyable! Along with these significant discounts on entrance fee, the Young Saints members have opportunities to enter free draws for signed shirts, signed footballs and mascot packages. Children will also receive regular updates, posters and player profiles through e-mail, along with football competitions and other special events over the course of the year.

The partnership between St Albans City F.C., St Albans City Youth and our local primary schools is a key factor in supporting bids for grants at club level and we are fully committed to developing stronger links and working closely together within our local community. Both St Albans City and St Albans City Youth are working together with the EJA teams to ensure a player pathway for the youth of the district.

Membership costs just £5.00 per year per child and we’d like to think that this is great value for money. If you do decide to go along just once or twice in a season, the membership card would enable a parent to take their children along and all gain entry to the match for less than a tenner!

For any children wishing to sign up, you can join online by going to www.cityyouthfc.co.uk/book in addition paper forms will also be made available to your team managers. Once you sign up for a Young Saints Membership you will be sent your membership card for the season and we will send you all the player profiles that have already been distributed to current members. Best wishes for the rest of the season and it would be great to see as many young St Albans City Youth players possible coming along and enjoying a match or two at Clarence Park.

We are looking to issue these cards direct to all our players for next season.

Playing Time

I have been receiving several calls from parents of younger teams (up to Under 11) about players not getting equal playing time.

Remember the FA Guidance: ‘All team members should receive equal playing time where possible, with a best practice recommendation of at least 50% per player for each game.’

Coach Education Week

The club has donated £2,000 to the Herts Sports Partnership to support this years Coach Education Week (February Half Term) in memory of David Wray. The donation will fund a local bursary programme as well as enabling the organisers to offer a range of courses either free of charge or at concessionary rates. In doing so, it will ensure that the 2018 Coach Education Week programme is fully inclusive. For details of what courses are available go to www.sportinherts.org.uk.
