Stroll On - The Walking Football Membership Scheme

North Riding FA is pleased to announce details of its 2019-20 Stroll On Walking Football Membership – a scheme which offers a range of benefits to participating organisations, enabling Walking Football to grow across the county.


Measuring the impact of activity is an essential element of our beautiful game. This ensures that we have a solid understanding as to how many people are involved in football and where they are participating.

The Stroll On membership scheme offers support for any organisation delivering Walking Football and sets out to ensure that all types and levels of football take place under an overarching set of Laws, Rules and Standards. In order to safeguard everyone involved it is necessary that partners ‘affiliate’ their activity with the North Riding County Football Association.


1. Recognition from the players/participants that the activity is taking place under the protection of the National Governing Body for Football. This will assist in the promotion and recruitment of participants.

2. Ensures that players and officials are safeguarded in competitive activity.

3. Access to FA Qualified Referees. FA Qualified Referees are only permitted to officiate in affiliated football and any insurance they carry is not applicable in unaffiliated competitions.

4. Affiliated competitions have the opportunity to post their results on ‘Full Time’ at FA.com - the Football Association’s official website.

5. Access to monthly walking football events at the Herlingshaw Centre in partnership with Middlesbrough Football Club Foundation.

6. Access to funding programmes to increase participation levels at your club.

7. Support from North Riding County Football Association football development officers.


The total cost for Stroll On Membership is £35. This cost includes Public Liability Insurance through Sportsguard. Further payment information can be found within the application pack.
