Developing young footballing talent with over 150 clubs throughout the UK
The Junior Premier league launched for the start of the 2011/12 season and was originally conceived by a group of large clubs from the Midlands & Southern England who were interested in developing their players through better coaching and better quality matches.
The league is aimed at clubs who want to develop their players through a ‘best with best’ ethos – the NERF JPL is not aimed at single teams looking for a new challenge.
The ethos of the League is always development before results and the main aim is to give a season’s worth of top quality competitive matches to every team participating.
We have high minimum standards in terms of coaching qualifications and all coaches must be members of the FA Licensed Coaches Club – we are still the only league in the country to be designated as an FA Licensed Coaches Club league and the only national league to have been awarded FA Charter Standard.
