SFA Initiatives

Ross County's SFA Development Officers deliver coaching pathways to the local grassroots coaches who are keen to progress up the coaching ladder. The courses are hugely popular and attract around 213 participants a year.


McDonald’s Fun Football aims to provide children between the ages of 5-10 across Scotland with a fun, safe and enjoyable football experience. The programme is delivered in two ways:


At the match centres

At the match sessions are delivered in a festival format for children of all backgrounds to enjoy. Free of charge, those in attendance will be led in a variety of fun, small-sided games and skill development stations by qualified Scottish FA coaches.

New participants can sign up via our online form or can drop in to a local session, with on-site staff available on the day to assist with any enquiries.


At the club centres


At the Club sessions are delivered alongside Scottish FA Quality Mark accredited clubs and/or senior professional clubs, providing boys and girls from around the country with a chance to further their football development.

Each session will allow participants to develop their skills under the watchful eye of qualified Scottish FA coaches, with sign-up available via online only.


The Scottish FA quality mark is an initiative designed to support grassroots development in youth football. The club's coaches work with and support local grassroots clubs and schools to increase youth and community participation as well as enhancing player, coach and volunteer development.
