Everyone's actions at the weekend speak louder than words. The Oxfordshire Youth Football League is joining in with the first National Silent Support Weekend to promote Respect in Youth Football, and our teams and clubs will play an important part.
We are encouraging spectators and coaches to show their support during the match through applause only. This will reduce pressure and confusion and give players a better opportunity to find their own voice and develop their game.
So, all you have to do is not talk, you can applaud good play from both teams, and then tell us your thoughts about the experience so we can feed into a national campaign to make improvements for the future. A digital link to a survey will be shared after the weekend for you to complete to collect this information.
Join us and play your part on Silent Support Weekend 5th and 6th November 2022.
You can download your club asset pack using the link below:
This has marketing guidance, letters, posters, social media assets and some suggested copy so you can let your parents and coaches know you’re taking part and what they need to do.
Many thanks for your Support.
