This October we're joining forces with all of Norfolk's Youth Football Leagues to promote positivity - join us!
Football is Positive - Join us!
This October we and all five of our Youth Football Leagues
are working together to tackle negative behaviour within Norfolk Football with
a localised campaign - Norfolk Football is Positive.
Our campaign’s aim is for every young person to enjoy the game within their
own environment. Young people choose to play our game and this campaign is only going to highlight the positives of playing football.
Football is a
game which is For All and everyone should get an opportunity to play, enjoy the game, have fun with
friends and grow their love of the sport.
We have highlighted four key areas from The FA’s National Campaign
of We Only Do Positive that we feel can improve the behaviour on the side-lines
Developing an anything possible attitude
Understanding your players better
Creating the right environment
Leading by positive example
Our four key areas will be highlighted in further detail
every Friday through October, prior to games taking place on the Saturday or
Football Development Officer (Women’s & Girls’) Harry
Diggens said, “This is a fantastic initiative
and something which I’m very passionate about. I have been working with all
five of our Youth Leagues as well as our Youth Council over the past 10 months
to develop this localised campaign. We are wanting to reach out to every youth
team playing Norfolk Football and are wanting to make sure the game is played
in a fun, safe and enjoyable environment.
“My challenge to
Norfolk Football’s coaches, parents, spectators and club officials is to make your
football environment the best it can be for the players.”.
