The Youth Football Association (commonly referred to as the 'Youth FA'). It started with the founding of the Educational Sports Centre at Marsa in 1972. That was the very first nursery in Malta. Hundreds of Children attended once or twice a week to train in football, basketball, athletics and gymnastics. Slowly, the early eighties gave birth to the football nursery practically in every small and big town in Malta. The Youth F.A. was established in 1982 comprising first 8 nurseries and clubs progressing rapidly to the present day. Each nursery caters for children from 6 years to 17 year old youths In the categories of Under 7, Under 9, Under 11, Under 13, Under 15 and Under 17. Nearly each nursery participates in Under 10 & 12 Festivals as well as in U/14 & U/16 Competitions (Under 19 teams do not form part of the Youth F.A. but of the Malta F.A.). The aims of the educational sports center, as the name denotes, was to educate children through sports. Although the Youth F.A. and all the nurseries do not refer directly to education in their names, the spirit of the aims remain those of forming the characters of children and youths through the game of football.
