Football is the National Sport of Scotland and the People’s Game. It contributes to
the health of our nation and has the power to make a positive impact in our local
communities. Football is intrinsic to Scotland’s culture and can create a sense of pride,
having the capacity to lift the spirits of our nation and provide a sense of purpose.

The beating heart of our game lies within grassroots football. Through the participation,
passion, energy and dedication of players, coaches, volunteers and officials our game
is enjoyed the length and breadth of our country, providing extensive benefits to all
involved.

For the good of our nation and for the good of our game, non-professional football
needs to be vibrant. For all ages, for all abilities and for people across all walks of life, our aim should be to make the game available, attractive and rewarding, widening its impact and the obvious benefits such as citizenship and health.

This plan has been developed during a challenging but exciting time in our game and
with the willingness of all major partners to collaborate and work collectively towards an
agreed vision for football.

The NPGB is the strategic bodywhich will drive this plan forward.These partner organisations, in addition to the extensive work of delivering footballacross our country also promote, develop and foster the game of football, administeringleagues, competitions, clubs and schools as well as registering players from acrossScotland. In recent years, the Scottish FA and partner organisations have collaboratedmore closely and have now created this National Plan for the benefit of everyone in thenon-professional game.Working together NPGB members and the Scottish FA have developed this plan whichsets out clear aims for the future of non-professional football and builds on the good inour game at present. The basis for improvement is evident. With strong, well organisedand committed partners, coupled with a highly recognised Football Development staffingstructure the building blocks are in place to take our game forward.This plan builds on the ‘strong quality growth’ aspect of the Scottish FA’s Corporateplan ‘Scotland United - A 2020 Vision’ and incorporating the views and feedback fromthe non-professional game via consultation nationally and regionally and through themember associations. This plan also seeks to strengthen the existing partnerships andtake our game forward to 2015 and beyond.STRATEGIC FRAMEWORKPlayersOUR MISSION STRATEGIC GOALSPerform and WinStrong, Quality GrowthBetter Financial ReturnsRespected and Trusted to LeadScottishFAScoreboardOur MissionThe Scottish FAleads the nationalgame with integ-rity and innovationto foster a cultureof performanceunity and trustPage // 5ONE NATIONAL PLAN

  • ONE NATIONAL PLANPage // 9Working together our game will……• Establish a culture of improvement where standards are continually raised acrossthe board• Increase participation with ‘football for all’ and an emphasis on fun and enjoyment atthe heart of provision• Thrive in our communities with excellent people leading and growing the playingcommunity through a pathway which inspires participation from school to club andfrom childhood through to adulthood• Be modern and attractive, inspiring players and volunteers to ensure the positivevalues of our game are central to the way we behave in football and in life• Establish strong, vibrant, well run clubs and schools at the heart of their community• Work with government and local authorities to provide good access to more andhigher quality facilities• Provide innovative and sustainable financial models to clubs with empowered andskilled leaders to take forward continued improvements to our game• Support a valued and passionate volunteer and coachworkforce who shape a culture across our game ofintegrity, trust and respectSECTION 4: HOW SHOULD OUR GAME LOOK IN 2015?4
  • ONE NATIONAL PLAN For Non-Professional Football in Scotland 2013-2015Page // 10Working together we will create a game we are all proud to be a part of. With thesupport and direction of everyone involved in the game and uniting behind these agreedobjectives we will ensure we have a game fit for the future:• INCREASED PARTICIPATION IN OUR GAMEo Particular attention must be paid to attracting young people into football as well ascreating better and more connected pathways to minimise drop out. Work will bedone to link youth and adult football more effectively as well as to develop focusedprogrammes for groups such as the over 35 and masters ageso Through more focussed and better connected community programmes thegame will provide an increase in high quality opportunities for people to play ournational game at all levels, with a focus on giving everyone who wants to play, thechance to play football regardless of age, gender, ability, ethnicity and social ordemographic circumstanceo An expanded provision of programmes and expertise will further promote diversityand equity and the ‘football for all’ culture in our game. Recently, the Scottish FAthrough Scottish Government ‘CashBack’ funding has employed staff to focus theirwork in the areas of Girl’s and Women’s football and staff to provide more footballfor black and ethnic communities. By reaching out to these groups, being moreproactive and inclusive we will further grow our gameo Through better connected schools and clubs we will direct more young players intothe non-professional game. Schools and clubs will be encouraged and supportedto work more closely on providing suitable pathways into existing clubs, leaguesand affiliated associations for lifelong involvemento Developing alongside this there will be a modernised and integrated system tounderstand better the trends of participation in football across Scotland.• DEVELOPING CLUBS AND SCHOOLSo The Scottish FA will work more closely with affiliated national associations, clubs,schools and local leaders in the game to raise standards through the Quality MarkAccreditation Scheme and Schools Awards Scheme to further develop strong,sustainable, well run community models with increased capacities and improvedprovision. Regional staff with a specific responsibility for this area will provideexpertise and support to clubs and schools at all levels of the non-professionalgameo The continued development of school to club links will be a feature of our ongoingwork, with the aim of working closely with local authorities, education and ActiveSchools to ensure players have local opportunities to progress into the pathwaySECTION 5: OUR OBJECTIVES5

  • ONE NATIONAL PLAN For Non-Professional Football in Scotland 2013-2015Page // 12o Clubs and schools will also benefit from National and Regional Development Forums wherebest practice will be shared and where ideas on developing the game can be exploredand allowed to flourish. This will include a greater degree of ‘Project Based Support’ andpastoral care for clubs in particular for those working on larger scale projects. Developing abusiness approach to club development and recognising the potential in areas such as socialenterprise will be other areas of work undertakeno The Scottish FA will provide a more modern, interactive website with a rangeof information to support the non-professional game.• VIBRANT VOLUNTEER WORKFORCEo People will be at the heart of the plan. Initiatives will be establishedto attract new volunteers into football from parents, ex-players,further and higher education students to people simply with apassion for the game. We will also look at developing relationshipswith business, commercial and financial institutions to recruit skilledvolunteers in these critical areaso To ensure the quality of our game is strong, we will work with a rangeof partners to develop the skills of volunteers in football, giving ongoingguidance and support in areas of finance, facility development, governance andleadershipo Volunteers will be better valued and recognised for their work through increased resourcesand focus to highlight their importance to our gameo An increase in quality and quantity of officials go hand in hand with the increase inparticipation. National and regional schemes including referee SVQ programmes inconjunction with schools and further education will be delivered to enhance this area alongwith the creation of a new referee short course.• COACH EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENTo Coaches are central to providing good quality activity and establishing a positive culturefor all players to flourish in. Through improved quality of courses, improved resources andbetter access to coach education courses we will engage with more coaches more often.The comprehensive coach education structure will provide a range of courses suitable forvolunteers just starting out in the game through to those looking to continually develop andimprove their knowledgeo A vibrant In-Service programme for coaches will be established and delivered across thecountry to ensure coaches at all levels are up to date with modern progressive techniqueso Through an improved and updated website, ‘Coach World’ will provide access to the latestinformation on coaching, allowing best practice to be promoted and shared instantly to thewhole coaching community
  • ONE NATIONAL PLANPage // 13• MORE ATTRACTIVE MODERN GAMEo Having established national and regional facility forums, the Scottish FA will publish andpromote our first Facilities Strategy. The core aim of the strategy is to improve the quality,quantity, access to and availability of facilities for all of non-professional football. It willbe used as a point of reference to engage more closely with Scottish Government, localauthorities and private providers and will drive forward the need to work more collaborativelywith all partners to develop new and improve existing facilities across Scotlando Whilst the Women’s game and children’s football have taken the step to move to a changeof season, playing and training from March to November and making use of better weatherconditions, there is a need to fully explore the potential benefits this would have for the wholeof the non-professional game. A comprehensive study into the feasibility of this will take placeconsidering all aspects and involving all relevant partnerso Our game when delivered well can be both a joy to participate in and can have such a positiveimpact on the lives of those involved. To ensure this, volunteers, coaches, officials, leaders,parents and players will be asked to unite behind the ‘Positive Coaching Scotland’ programmewhich will integrate key messages into all aspects of the plan. This project seeks to establishthe right culture of respect and improved touchline behaviour through ‘Honouring the Game’.The programme also seeks to address the ‘win at all cost’ culture and put the developmentof confidence and self-esteem at its core. We must all work together to deliver a game whichis fun and enjoyable to play in and which, for parents, displays the benefits and merits offootball beyond just health and happiness. Attention will also be given to limit drop out inparticular at key stages such as at 14 years into adult football.• MORE TALENTED YOUNG PLAYERSo Contributing to ‘Perform and Win’ within the ‘Scottish United A 2020 Vision’, this plan will seethe implementation of a network of Development Centres across the country. This programmewill support the best young grassroots players to improve and develop,helping ambitious young players to meet the target of 10,000hours of quality practice and developmento In addition the Scottish FA will provide coaches, clubs,schools, volunteers, parents and most importantly playerswith a series of resources and online support. This willbe aimed at stimulating progressive practice in orderto help improve the technical, tactical, physical andpsychological qualities of our future top young players.STRONG EFFECTIVE GOVERNANCEo We will underpin the delivery of the plan through growing astrong national, regional and local infrastructure that includesgood people and supportive partners. This will be governedthrough the Scottish FA, NPGB and regional committees. It will alsoinvolve the ongoing input from affiliated national associations and member leagues and willbe delivered through the football development department, regional teams.

  • ONE NATIONAL PLAN For Non-Professional Football in Scotland 2013-2015Page // 16THE NATIONAL PLAYER PATHWAYThe National Player Pathway developed from the Scottish FA ‘Developing Talent Plan’, is an agreedlong-term approach to the development of players at each age and stage of the game fromchildhood through to adulthood which may evolve based upon best practice from across theworld as well as research into the development and retention of players. At each of the stagesthere are agreed principles of practice set out to ensure there is a modern and attractive gamefor all to participate in and with the development and welfare of the player at its centre. Fromthe first stage of the pathway of 3 to 5 years where we encourage basic fundamental activity anddiscovery through play onto the adult game there are a series of progressions which allow thegame to grow with the player. Crucially during the Primary School stages of 6 to 8 and 9 to 12years, the pathway follows the small-sided game formats of 4 v 4 and 7 v 7 on a developmentaland trophy free basis, focussing on effort, learning and fun rather than match results. The 4 v 4games are based around festival formats with multiple games to maximise activity and the 7 v 7stage can be more structured towards the provision of home and away fixtures, always followingthe developmental philosophy. Later at youth and adult level the 11-a-side game becomes thefavoured match format, although small-sided football should remain an option which offers varietyto the different levels of ability and the varying commitment people have to football.The player pathway diagram opposite shows the various stages of development in thegame and the role of the various non-professional game members in its delivery.
