Opportunities for players aged U7 - U16

​Boys' Football is moving forwards!

There are so many exciting opportunities for young players to get into the local grassroots game.

From mini-soccer for those taking their first kick of a ball to teams for boys looking for regular football and kickabouts for those that don't want the commitment of every weekend our aim is to offer football for everyone. Small sided formats such as 4v4 and 5v5 are at the forefront of mini-soccer within our youth leagues, with all youth leagues then offering a 9v9 format before moving to 11v11 from U13's onwards.

There are 2 youth football leagues across Cornwall for boys and mixed teams, the Kernow Youth League and the East Cornwall Youth League. You can visit the league websites for more information using the quick links below.

Our new Youth League will be starting in 2023/24, bringing the existing leagues under one umbrella while continuing to offer fantastic football opportunities to both boys and girls. For more information about the merger please contact our Youth League Co-ordinator Ami Dickens: ami.dickens@cornwallfa.com

Make football fun and safe for young players

Let’s provide a safe and fun environment for young people to develop in football.

Cornwall FA encourage a modern, child-friendly approach to youth football, challenging the win-at-all-costs mentality that is stifling development and enjoyment for young people.

Working together with a positive attitude, adults can help support a better learning environment for young people, putting their development needs at the centre. Download the FA Development Review on the link below to find out more.
