Keeping Sussex football safe and healthy...

Sussex County FA is committed to Health and Safety in all of our operations, whether that be in the County Office or out in the community.

We work hard with players, coaches, referees, clubs, leagues and facilities to take every reasonable step to ensure an acceptable standard of health and safety for all who want to play affiliated football in Sussex.

Concussion Guidelines

If in doubt sit them out!

Helpful information and advice about how to recognise and manage a concussion from the time of injury through to a player's safe return to football.

The guidance, which is designed to support those managing head injuries in football at all levels, is available in two forms - a free-to-download document and as an online resource.

Personal Accident Insurance

Personal Accident Insurance protects players, committee members, managers, trainers and assistant referees/officials in the event of an accident arising from football activities.

This insurance is mandatory for all age groups and formats of football, including youth. This means that your club will have purchased this insurance as part of their affiliation to the Sussex County FA.
