The SFA recognises that both football clubs and schools should be rewarded for attaining enhanced standards of playing, coaching and administration of the youth game.
The SFA Quality Mark Scheme in conjunction with Glasgowlife offers clubs and schools working with young people the opportunity to work towards three levels of accreditation award as detailed as below:
Each award is related to both, the capacity and specific football infra structure of the club / school which should coincide with the level of award that they wish to attain.
