About Stretton Eagles JFC
Stretton Eagles JFC is a junior football club based in Stretton, near Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire.
Founded in 1995, Stretton Eagles began as a single team and has since expanded to have teams in most of the age groups available.
The overall vision of the club is to provide a safe, friendly and fun environment for young people of all ages, genders, abilities and ethnicities to play football.
Although we do not play to lose, our emphasis is on allowing the children to have FUN whilst expressing their ability, skill and flair - as well as developing from structured guidance by our DBS checked coaches.
Like most grassroots clubs, Stretton Eagles is run entirely by volunteers, for the benefit of the local community. If you would like to become involved in any capacity, please get in touch to see what you could do to help.
The FA Charter Standard
The Football Association launched The FA Charter Standard Programme in 2001, with a view to raise standards in grassroots football and support the development of clubs and leagues around the country.
The FA Charter Standard accreditation is only awarded to clubs and leagues rigorously adjudged to be well run and sustainable – and which prioritise child protection, quality coaching and implementation of the Respect programme.
Stretton Eagles proudly subscribe to the values and standards set out in the programme.
Information For Parents
We ask that parents adhere to the information below for the safety and well being of all of our players:
- It is essential to bring your child a drink to all training and match sessions.
- No Match kit to be worn on training days
- Dress your child appropriately. Skins or baselayers are advised on wintery match days as well as a jacket for when not on the pitch.
- Shin pads must be worn at all matches, friendlies and training sessions
- Footwear appropriate to the playing surface must be worn. If in doubt, please consult with your child's coach, as referees do carry out spot checks.
- Please clearly label all clothing and kit worn by your child.
We'd like to remind all parents that Coaches, Players, other Parents and Match Officials must be treated with respect. Many referees are still minors themselves, and as such, abuse directed at them is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
The Respect Campaign from The FA aims to tackle the mass drop-out of referees from football due to abuse. Thousands of referees are leaving the game each season, which has led to the number of match officials hitting its lowest ever level.
Respect also aims to bring the fun back to football for young players. Parents and coaches pushing too hard and pressurising impressionable children for three points is having a negative impact on their development and enjoyment of the game.
