Sponsorship packages are now available for the upcomimg season. These are always very popular (especially age group sponsorship), so register your interest early.
If you or your company are considering a sporting sponsorship which benefits the whole community, especially young people, it would be difficult to find a better opportunity locally than to work with the KicKStart Youth Football League.
We have developed a range of sponsorship opportunities at all levels of affordability for individuals, organisations and businesses which allow them to get involved with the football league and to feel a part of what is going on.
Prices start from as little as £50...
All of our sponsorship packages develop the theme that KicKStart Youth Football League is an FA Charter Standard League. We are committed to integrating our sporting activities with local individuals, organisations and businesses, making it our business to ensure that they enjoy the experience and that the sponsorship package they choose achieves its aims.

How are the scores worked out?
Every Sunday your oppenents will give you two scores out of 5 and the match official will also give you two scores out of 5. Giving your team a possible 20 points.
How did your team do?
Each team scoring below 90% will be monitored going forward & if improvement is not displayed, the team (including spectators) will have to attend one of our Respect education evenings.
Every team that has scored above 90% can be congratulated on the way they are upholding the values of the Respect programme.
Those teams at the top of the league will be entered into Respect Awards at the end of the season and could be nominated to enter the County Respect Awards where a prize of £250 is awarded along with a chance to be nominated for the National awards.
We would like to thank Steph & all the team at i-Jump for their support of our league and for sponsoring the Under 8's for this season.
They have agreed to also offer 25% discounts of open jumps to all our members. In addition to this They could also offer the Park for Christmas Parties or Behaviour Rewards for the teams and players.

Nottinghamshire FA and Derbyshire FA Respect weekend
Over this coming weekend, Notts and Derbyshire County FA’s will be holding a Respect weekend. The theme of the weekend will be...
So what does a Silent Sideline involve?
Well the main aim is to encourage all of the adults involved in mini and youth soccer to give some thought to the things they say and shout, whilst watching their young players take part in football.
Does a Silent Sideline mean total silence?
No. We appreciate that this would be a little false, and probably not the thing that people want at football. What we would like to hear is parents and spectators applauding good play from both teams, praise where praise is due, but try to keep this to a minimum. We are going to ask coaches to keep their instructions to an absolute minimum. The whole idea is to let the children play, free from the pressures that can often come from the sidelines.
How do we want YOU to get involved?
Get the message out to your coaches, teams, parents and spectators, that you are taking part, all in the name of Respect. Do something innovative, as a group or individually, and take their photo. Either using your smartphone at the game, or when you get home, post your pictures on social media, using the hashtag #LetThemPlay.
We’d like to make it clear that this isn’t a pilot, trial or dry run of any rules change that would make this a permanent part of the game in either Notts or Derbyshire. It’s a one-off, for one weekend, all in the name of Respect.
There are some great resources now available from the FA which explains how Respect can help the development of our young players, to help them become better players, better decision makers, and help them to love the game. This is far more likely to happen if they can just play, free from the pressure of endless, often well intended, instructions and ‘guidance’ from the sidelines.
If you do one thing at the games on the 18th/19th November 2017, makes sure you #LetThemPlay
