Southwater Royals was founded as Royal United in 1997 in Southwater, Horsham, West Sussex.

We are a Southwater based club however recently moved to play all our Under 7 - Under 11 age group games at Christ's Hospital School.

Southwater Royals is committed to promoting high standards of football coaching in a safe and rewarding environment for all children. In 2005 the club submitted its application and was successful in gaining The FA Chartered Standard Award.

Southwater Royals (Royal United) was one of the first clubs in the area to be given this award and reflects the very high standards our Club Officers, Managers and Team Reps set.

The award is only available to clubs that can demonstrate they meet high standards in:-

  • Football Coaching – All Managers must hold formal FA Coaching Qualification
  • Child Protection
  • Equal Opportunities
  • Administration
  • Football Conduct
  • Fair Play


In addition to the requirements of the FA Chartered Standard the club continues to strive to raise standards and has already implemented the following:

  • Managers undertake full Criminal Records Bureau Disclosure
  • Managers are supported in undertaking additional coaching qualifications
  • Managers are all trained to emergency first aid standard
  • Managers maintain their knowledge through membership of Sussex County FA Coaches Association
  • Assistant Managers are supported to take formal FA Coaching Qualifications
