In support of The FA Respect Campaign and the new #WeOnlyDoPositive mantra, the Leicestershire & Rutland County FA are seeking to collate and share good practice examples of how all those involved in the game play their part to create fun, safe and inclusive playing environments for young players.
The good practice could be a specific moment on a match day which embodied the respect values, it could be an example of how a coach or referee creates a player centred environment, or could be a wider example of how a league, club or team really embeds respect in what they do; week-by-week and season-by-season.
Good practice received will be reviewed by an independent panel on a monthly basis, who will then select one “Good Practice of the Month” to be shared across County FA communication networks.
Each winner of “Good Practice of the Month” will be presented with a certificate and an automatic nomination into the end of season FA Community Awards, where the winner will receive complimentary tickets to the FA Community Shield in August 2019.
Leading the way in showcasing good practice this month is our FA Charter Standard League of the Year for 2017/18, the Leicestershire & Rutland Inclusive Football League, who highlight some effective ways the league embed Respect within their offer via pre-season parent talks, respect signage and a consistent messages in line with the league ethos.
