The Youth Framework provides a clear, coordinated national approach to the development of youth players aged 13-17 years. Its main aim is to provide all youth players, regardless of their ability, with high quality experiences in order to retain them in or attract them to the game. The Youth Framework provides clear pathways for players ensuring that young footballers can access opportunities to play at an appropriate level. During the youth years, growth and maturation, as well as interest and commitment to the sport, do not develop at the same rate for all players. It is important that football activity shapes both the player and the person in a challenging, safe and enjoyable environment.
