Respect Campaign: It Starts With You

We've Published Some Useful Guidance and Handy Hints

Respect isn’t just earned on the pitch, its earned off of it as well. When we talk about Respect, we are talking about the positive environment we want to encourage across all of football. We're taking the opportunity to remind grassroots football participants of the positive impact of the Respect Campaign.

It’s about making the game a better place for all to enjoy. To achieve this, we understand the importance of the role of our coaches across the game in implementing a positive environment to make their players better, on and off the pitch.

A coaches dedication takes players to the next level. Tactics, skills, fitness - all these things are important, but there’s one big factor that can make a huge difference to the people you coach - and it could be the simplest change you make this year to transform your team.

You can hear directly from our England stars on the importance their grassroots coaches played on influencing and shaping their footballing journeys and setting them on the right path to a successful career on our Twitter/X page. And when England Football spoke to the former grassroots coaches, they told them that their ethos revolved around making the players feel positive and respected.

Studies have even shown that players who feel positive on the pitch actually play better. While, as a coach, you can’t control each moment on the pitch, you can set the tone before and during every match, at every training session, in every interaction with your team.

You can see some handy tips for help to instil a more positive environment for your club on this website. You can also interact with us via the @EssexCountyFA Twitter/X account and by searching for ‘EssexFootball’ on Facebook.
