2019/20 GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL SURVEY ANNOUNCED BY THE FA
The Football Association has announced its annual survey for participants in Nottinghamshire to provide feedback on the grassroots football provision in the local area.
Players, coaches, parents, supporters, volunteers, referees, club and league officials across Nottinghamshire now have the opportunity to highlight areas where they require support, suggest areas for improvement and outline the impact of particular campaigns or schemes.
Since the online survey was originally launched, the responses of more than 100,000 grassroots participants have helped to inform the decision making and allocation of resources by The FA and respective County FAs. Results from the 2018/19 edition identified five key areas – both on and off the pitch – where a renewed focus is required:
- Identify the resources and tools that clubs need the most support with
- Foster the right experience for participants at this level of the game
- Encourage young people to stay active in different roles across the game
- Ensure the RESPECT campaign has a positive impact on all participants
- Adapt to the changing nature of modern grassroots football
Last time around you said; ‘Nottinghamshire needs more 3G facilities with floodlights’ and ‘want more development courses for coaches (CPD events)’
So, we did; Obtain £1.2 million facility grants from the football foundation and re-launches our Notts FA Coaches Club. We now have over 400 coaches signed up with 10 CPD events planned for throughout the season.
Here at Nottinghamshire we see the grassroots survey as a wonderful opportunity for everyone connected with grassroots football within Nottinghamshire to share with us their views. We positively encourage everyone involved in grassroots, be that a coach, a club and or league official, a helper, parent or spectator, a match official and of course those who play the game to share with us their views of football. The annual survey is now live until the 5th November 2019 and this is a crucial resource which will enable us to action views to improve.
