"nurturing future talent"

 

Tower Hamlets Youth League (THYL)
 
 
 
Introduction
The THYL is a joint league run by BFA and Sports Network Council (SNC) and is affiliated to the London FA. The partnership came about in 2011 after both organisations felt that a combined league would serve the community better than running their own separate leagues. He league is played all year round winter and summer.
 
 
The aim of the league is to:
 
1.     Provide local children and young people the facility to play organised league football all year round
2.     Improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people through regular exercise, personal and social development
3.     Reduce anti-social behaviour and youth crime through positive engagement
4.     Reduce estate based gang violence between young people by bringing together young people from all over the borough
5.     Improve better understanding and tolerance between children from different backgrounds
6.     Increase youth volunteering in sport and in their community
7.     Develop young people as leaders, coaches and managers
8.     Capacity build youth teams so they have qualified coaches and officials to improve the skills of their players but also to meet the legal requirement for working with children and young people
9.     Identify talented players and signpost them to professional pathways
