The Cleveland Youth Football League has become the FIRST Youth League within North Riding County FA to become a Respect League
Respect is The FA’s programme to address unacceptable behaviour in football – on and off the pitch.
On average, 7,000 referees quit football every year at because of the abuse they receive from players and from the sidelines. Lots of children also pack it in because of the attitude and actions of over-enthusiastic and pushy parents.
In response, The FA’s Respect programme provides a series of tools for leagues, clubs, coaches, Referees, players and parents from grassroots to elite football to ensure a safe, positive environment in which to enjoy the game.
These tools include agreed codes of conduct, in-service training for Referees, Respect club packs, spectator sideline barriers funded by the Football Foundation and ensuring captains work with referees to manage player behaviour.
The FA has also launched a free online Respect Parent Guide to highlight examples of poor behaviour and, more importantly, how it can be improved. To see the Guide for Parents and carers click here
They stand on a field their hearts beating fast the whistle has blown, the die has been cast.
A goal at this moment would send the team home.
Mum and Dad cannot help, he stands all alone the ball near his feet he kicks and it misses, There's a moan from the crowd some boo's and some hisses a thoughtless voice cries, Take off this bum, tears fill his eyes it's no longer fun.
If your tempted to shout or moan remember it's a child who stands alone, so open your heart give them a break. it's moments like this a player you make.
Keep this in mind and please don't forget they are only children not adults so please be fair and RESPECT the child out there!
