Greentowers Hinckley FC – How the club use Respect to create a positive environment!
In support of The FA Respect Campaign and the new #WeOnlyDoPositive mantra, the Leicestershire & Rutland County FA have been seeking and sharing examples of 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.
In this feature we showcase how Greentowers Hinckley display Respect branding and messages through signage, boards and the clubs kit as a constant reminder to players, parents and coaches of the clubs support for the initiative.
Rachel Gallop, Designated Safeguarding Officer said, “Respect has become culturally imbedded in this club by the regular and consistent messages they communicate and display. Every training session and match day the club display respect resources in view of players, parents, coaches, referees and visiting teams as well as having every player displaying a respect logo on their sleeve. Their understanding of Respect gives young player a positive mind-set both on and off the pitch”

This is just one example of so much good practice that occurs throughout the game, and we want to hear from you and your examples too!
This 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.
Each “Good Practice” that is shared 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.
