TRSC are delighted to announce that the Club has been granted Charter Standard status by the FA.

The FA Charter Standard programme is a kitemark which recognises and rewards high quality levels of provision in club and league football. The kitemark is only awarded to clubs that are well run, sustainable and which place child protection, quality coaching and safety paramount.

Criteria for achieving the award include having a trained Welfare Officer, CRB checks for all volunteers, Emergency Aid-trained volunteers linked to each team, Respect programme sign-up, a Level One coach for each youth team, appropriate club administration in place and a volunteer co-ordinator.

All of these criteria have been met by the Club in the space of just six months.

Graeme Howlett, Chairman of Thundersley Rovers Sports Club said: "I am delighted that the Club has been able to achieve FA Charter Standard status, which is a hugely prestigious accolade. I would like to thank all the personnel at the Club who have contributed to this achievement."

The FA Charter Standard kitemark was launched in 2001 and now has more than 4,500 clubs. The kitemark is a major focus of The FAs 200 million FA National Game Strategy and has improved coaching, the number of girls' football teams and safeguarding children.

The award comes as Thundersley Rovers Sports Club are preparing to celebrate their 50th anniversary - more details of which are to follow in the coming weeks.
