Hampshire FA And Portsmouth Join Forces
Wed 11th Nov 2015 | Football Governance
Hampshire FA in partnership with Portsmouth FC will continue the good work of its FA Respect programme as they join forces once again to put on a Respect Education Workshop which will take place on Monday 23rd November 2015 to promote the message further.
The first Respect Education workshop for Grassroots Football Clubs will take place at Portsmouth FC’s home ground, Fratton Park from 6 - 9pm.
Hampshire FA fully endorses and supports the FA Respect programme and as such the County FA has several local initiatives in place to provide education and guidance on best practice procedures.
The best practice procedures are sent to Clubs and Leagues; with their support this is then disseminated to players, officials, parents and spectators, ensuring all are fully aware of the programme and the positive impact it can have on the grassroots game.
The key aims and objectives are to ensure that Respect initiatives are fully implemented to promote a safe, fun, enjoyable and friendly environment which aids to the enjoyment of the football experience.
As part of the County FA Plan and Raising Standards of behaviour in grassroots football, a Respect Education Workshop was produced and rolled out to clubs in September 2014. This presentation includes education on respect, discipline, laws of the game, social media, equality and diversity.
To date 32 Hampshire FA affiliated youth clubs have received this presentation and the feedback provided has indicated that the presentation was informative and educational.
The workshop will be the first of a series with the club, ensuring there are plenty of opportunities for all to attend and be involved, finding out more about the FA’s programme and how individually we all contribute and play a part in the programme overall.
Head of Safeguarding & Inclusion at Portsmouth FC Colin Farmery, discussing the joint partnership work with Hampshire FA, says: “The club is delighted to host this workshop. While raising the profile of the Respect programme at events like the Yeovil game is important, the follow up and partnership work with Hampshire FA is of equal, if not more significance.
“I see this as an ongoing relationship, which can only help underpin the core message that anti-social, abusive or discriminatory behaviour in football at all levels will not be tolerated.”
The workshop is targeted towards grassroots youth football clubs and clubs in the close vicinity of Portsmouth. To register for the November workshop, please click here: http://surveys.thefa.com/TakeSurvey.aspx?PageNumber=1&SurveyID=n2L23nlK&Preview=true
