The Football Association has today announced its annual survey for participants in Cheshire to provide feedback on the grassroots football provision in the local area.
Players, coaches, parents, supporters, volunteers, referees, club and league officials across 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
James Kendall, The FA’s new director of football development, said: "The Grassroots Football Survey provides us with invaluable insight into the constantly evolving nature of the game at this level and relays the views of our participants within the decision-making process.
"Approximately £1 million is invested into community football each week and the opinions of all those directly involved helps to ensure that we are serving and developing the areas of the game that really matter the most."
