GAME PLAN FOR THE SEASON

As stated in the league handbook (pages 29-31) After teams have played each other the specified number of times the leagues will be split into sections (this varies depending on the age group). This is something the KicKStart League has always done, we believe that all teams should be playing opposition of equal/similar ability. This has always been our philosophy to aid the children's development, this philosophy is now being rolled out by the Football Association!

 

The following age groups have new fixtures allocated;

 

Under 7's (4 groups for spring fixtures)

Under 8's (now 3 groups for spring fixtures)

Under 9's (2 groups for spring fixtures)

Under 10's (Premier League, Challenge League & Presidents League fixtures now allocated)

Under 11's (Premier League & Challenge League fixtures now allocated)

Under 12's (Premier League & Challenge League fixtures now allocated)

Under 13's (Premier League & Challenge League fixtures now allocated)

Under 15's (Premier League & Challenge League fixtures now allocated)

Summer League - Club Application Form Summer League - Team Application Form

NEXT SEASON 2014/15

Club and Team application forms for next season will be available to download from our website soon along with guidelines to assist with the re-registration of existing teams and the registration of new teams.

 

Club Secretaries will also receive an email soon, advising them about how to re-register their existing team(s) or register any new teams, and also how to re-register exsiting players and new players.

 

Because the league has taken over the Player Registration System from next season it has allowed us to make the whole process much easier.

 

New player registration forms will be available to download from our website but NOT until 1st June 2014, to help prevent illegal approach of existing registered players. Guidelines will accompany this form to assist you.

 

Player re-registration forms, complete with guidelines will be distributed direct to Team Managers at pre-arranged photo sessions. These sessions are currently being organised to take place at Debdale Park, Mansfield Woodhouse and The Bentinck, Kirkby in Ashfield. Club Secretaries and Team Managers will be advised when their session is in due course. It is planned that Clubs with more than one team will be invited in first followed by age groups sessions.
