ITFC HOST FAMILIES

 If you would like to become a host family and can provide a warm and welcoming environment for our young players as they continue their full-time football development, we would like to hear from you. 

We require host families to look after either our boys or girls aged 16-20, preferably with the ability to accommodate at least two players.
Lodgings should provide good quality accommodation in an area which provides easy access to the training ground (Playford Road, IP4 5RQ); in addition, homes must provide a safe setting for the apprentices to live during their weekly training schedule.

The actual accommodation required should have a room which the young player will not share with any other family member and can grow and thrive in your living environment.  

Access to public transport and local amenities is desirable. The role will require residential accommodation either from Sunday evening until Saturday morning each week during the football season (usually last week in June until second week in May) or, for those players living further away from home, for seven days per week.

Within our girls programme the current commitment is only a Tuesday night although this may expand in the future.  The host is required to provide high quality nutritional breakfasts and evening meals with the potential of occasional lunches. Really we are looking for a ‘home away from home’.

This is a very rewarding role and can obviously make a big impact on the lives and development of our young players. 

 We are also looking for homes that can provide temporary accommodation paid on a nightly basis for our trialists.

If you would like any more information or wish to discuss this further please get in touch.
