Sign up to be part of 2020's 21 Days of Positvity
Sign up now to be part of the campaign!
Last year The FA ran '21 Days of Positivity' campaign for the first time ever. Almost 4,000 coaches took part last year. The aim of the campaign was to share positive hints, tips and challenges with youth coaches across the country.
Why 21 Days?
21 days is the time it takes to form a habit and the ideal amount of time to understand you, your club and begin to find the best methods to use for your coaching style.
For 3 weeks from the 20 January 2020, there will be a mixture of information, hints, tips and suggested actions to take to strengthen your relationship within your teams and help create a long-lasting positive environment for them to continue to enjoy the game for many years to come.
This is also perfect opportunity to get parents more involved in the game, teaching them how to adapt their behaviour and help create a more positive environment on the touchline for their children.
We want everyone to get back the core reason we all play, coach and watch football - the love of the game. Registration is open 13 December 2019 - 17 Jan 2020. If this is something you feel passionately about it as we do, then sign up to take part today!
Have a read of what some coaches thought and learnt from the campaign last year:
“I have found this has reinforced my desire to make coaching fun and reduce the pressure and stress for both me and the players.”
“We now celebrate players and their achievements. Our players aren’t influenced by score lines.”
“We get parents to play a bigger part in creating a positive environment. They’ve enjoyed being included within the sessions and it really helps the team.”
“I’m now more aware about giving players space to think and play without me stepping in too much.”
“I have reconnected with my love of the game and am focused less on winning now.”
"After 21 days, getting the parents away from the attitude of let’s thrash them to let’s play good football.”Every coach that completes the 21 days will receive 1 hour towards their Continued Professional Development and be in with a chance to win a Respect pack (Terms and Conditions below).
