Team Sixteen

Team Sixteen is a new intra-school football programme developed by The FA along with delivery partners The English Schools FA (ESFA) and The Independent Schools FA (ISFA).

It forms The FA’s Level 1 School Games offer, which has been identified as football’s priority level for school games delivery. Team Sixteen aims to engage secondary school children who are not currently participating in sporting activity outside of regular Physical Education lessons – it’s a great way to give an opportunity to play football for boys and girls who are not part of the school team.

The programme also provides leadership opportunities for pupils, encouraging students to be placed in organising roles. At category 2 and 3, we will provide a ‘Team Sixteen Maker’ pack. The ‘Team Sixteen Maker’ will be a student from within the school whose role it is to encourage his or her peers to participate in Team Sixteen, making Team Sixteen a programme delivered by Young People, for Young People.
