How do we make grassroots football an enriching experience for all?
The answer lies in understanding the collective beat of our community. The Culture Survey emerges as a tool to gauge this - to tap into the thoughts, opinions, and experiences of those who breathe life into the grassroots football.
As part of our ongoing commitment to inclusion and creating safe, fun and welcoming spaces for all in football, we are pleased to introduce the BBFA Culture Survey, providing a new avenue for engagement for every player, coach, volunteer, match official and parent involved in the beautiful game across our region and providing a place to give feedback for improvement.
The central purpose of the Culture Survey is to shape our ongoing efforts to support players and enrich their football journey. We recognise the importance of clubs in our local communities with many serving as vibrant hubs where relationships, growth, and passion displays. Collating insights from the Culture Survey will offer a holistic view of what works well and where there's room for growth. We also understand that each club's dynamics are unique. Therefore, the anonymised information collected will be shared directly with the individual clubs. This sharing of insights aims to empower clubs with the necessary tools to tailor their environments to best suit their members' needs.
The power of the Culture Survey lies in its ability to tap into the collective knowledge of our community. Coaches bring insights from the training ground, referees from the pitch, parents offer perspectives from the sidelines, volunteers contribute their dedicated efforts, and players voice their aspirations and concerns.
Rest assured, the data collected will be treated with the utmost confidentiality. It will not be shared outside of the BBFA or the respective clubs. Your candid responses will be used solely to enhance the football experience within your local clubs and, by extension, the entire grassroots football landscape.
