Our Mission Statement
To make PSG FC a club where children are safe at all times and to help make football an enjoyable, safe and fullfilling activity for all. To create a culture of respect for all people, openess and best practice to safeguard and protect the children and adults involved with the club.
We are a non profit making organisation and have no paid staff. All of our committee members and coaches give up their time for free to ensure all funding goes directly towards laying the foundations for present and future generations of girls football in the Saffron Walden area.
Our Club Rules are based on the Football Association template. We have a dedicated Welfare Officer to ensure our Safeguarding Policy is implemented and monitored. All adults involved with the club are DBS / CRB checked and we have at least one qualified FA Level 1 Coach per team.
We are affiliated to the Essex FA and have U13, U11, U10 & U9 teams in the respective S-Tech Cambridgeshire Leagues . This will be expanded to include other age groups as membership increases and our current players move up through the age groups.
What We Do
We provide a safe, fun, supportive and inclusive environment for school age girls of all abilities where they can develop their football and social skills, build personal confidence and improve personal fitness through participation in a team sport.
We actively promote a culture of teamwork, fair play and RESPECT for themselves, their teammates, the opposition and officials. We follow the FA RESPECT codes of conduct for Young Players, Spectators, Parents & Carers, Coaches, Team Managers, Club Officials and Referees. We encourage a friendly, positive, nurturing atmosphere where players are praised for their individual and collective achievements.
Coerver® Partner Club
At the start of the 2016/17 football season PSG joined Barclays Premier League club Stoke City FC and Scottish giants Rangers FC to become one of the first grass roots football clubs in the country to become a Coerver Partner Club.
Coerver Coaching, which is widely regarded as the World’s leading youth development programme and provides the club with cutting edge support to enhance the learning and development of all club players, coaches and parents. We believe better coaches mean better players and we are confident that our players will benefit significantly and enjoy their football even more as a result of our association with Coerver.”
