Kent FA Licensed Football Provider

The Kent FA licensing programme aims to promote those providers that demonstrate high quality, enjoyable and inclusive playing opportunities in a safe environment. This is achieved by evidencing that appropriate insurance, policies, and qualifications are in place and remain so. The criteria required builds on the FA Charter Standard programme to ensure the benchmark achieved is of the highest quality, and once accredited you hold the license for two years before having to reapply.
