Make a Positive Statement
Grassroots clubs and leagues across Berks & Bucks can now apply for discounted vouchers for new Respect equipment.
The latest roll-out of an FA-funded campaign is aiming to use positivity to help create safe, fun and inclusive match day environments and with the chance to save 50% on selected merchandise now’s the perfect time show your support.
Respect, which celebrates its tenth anniversary year, will now see a new focus placed on the impact of positive behavior, and will contribute to both the performance and overall enjoyment of young grassroots footballers.
The campaign’s new mantra, ‘We Only Do Positive’, will specifically focus on the behaviours of parents and coaches.
The changes come after independent research commissioned by The FA found 90% of young footballers say they play better with support and encouragement whilst 92% get greater enjoyment from the sport when they play in a positive environment.
The new-look campaign will also see significant changes made to the associated Respect equipment scheme, which is delivered by the UK’s largest sports charity, the Football Foundation.
As part of the scheme, clubs and leagues across Berks & Bucks will be given the opportunity to redeem vouchers enabling them to access half-price Respect packs. Two packs will be available, an on-pitch pack and the other an off-pitch pack to help shape a more positive environment.
The new equipment will contain brand new ‘We Only Do Positive’ messaging to promote the importance of positive behaviour at football and encourage players, parents and coaches to be respectful whilst in attendance.
