Competition Opportunities

The Football Development Section will promote and support The Scottish FA and the Scottish Youth FA’s joint venture to enhance the development of young players in Scotland.

All young people playing recreational football will now follow the new National Player Pathway, which starts with small-sided games and grows with the child.

The Associations researched best practice both in Scotland and across the world (Brazil, Portugal, Spain, Holland and Croatia amongst others) to produce a National Player Pathway that will fit into a Scottish context and help young players to reach their potential.
