About us

The Harrow Youth Football League is a premier football organisation for the Under 12 to Under 18 age-groups (inclusive); Under 12 at the 9-a-side level, and Under 13 to Under 18 at the 11-a-side level.

The Harrow Soccer Combination is a premier 5-a-side, 7-a-side and 9-a-side football development scheme for the Under 7, Under 8, Under 9, Under 10 and Under 11 age-groups.

The Harrow Youth Football League and the Harrow Soccer Combination comprise some 100 clubs and over 750 teams, facilitating football for around 10,000 boys and girls each week in the Under 7 to Under 18 age-groups.

Both organisations have been recognised by The Football Association as Accredited and award-winning Charter Standard Leagues and FA Respect Leagues.

We exist for the benefit of children (boys and girls), where the emphasis is on enjoyment, team participation and the development of footballing skills and techniques; alongside the associated benefits of physical, mental and social well-being.

There is nothing more important in football than keeping players, coaches, spectators, match officials and everyone involved safe. If we can do that, we can all enjoy the game we love.

Both organisations and all its member clubs support The FA’s Respect programme. We recognise that everyone involved in football has a collective responsibility to create a fair, safe and enjoyable environment in which the game can take place. We value the courtesy and fairness by all players, officials and spectators. We seek all matches to be played in a fair and competitive but not antagonistic environment.

If we do not have respect for the opposition players and coaches, and especially for the match referee, then we do not have a game of football.

In both organisations, equality, diversity and inclusion means valuing and celebrating our differences. Every one is welcome and every single participant has the right to play the game with confidence and without prejudice, regardless of ability and background. We are proud of the achievements and progress made so far across the football family, as we all continue on the journey to make the game truly FOR ALL; we hope that you will join with us.
