youth football survey findings


Over the past year we have surveyed over 400 Children and Young People to understand how they feel about football. The following dashboard provides a summary of how the children felt about various areas of the game


Whilst surveying the Children and Young People we also asked them what they would change if they had the opportunity. Here is what they said:

You Said...
We Did...

We don’t like our kit…

Contacted the relevant clubs and highlighted the FA Charter Standard Kit Store and FA Nike Partner Club Programme.

Parents shout to much …. 

We spoke to the club and league and highlighted The FA’s ‘We only do Positive Campaign’ 

The pitches we play on are wet and muddy…


We have contacted the club/s to promote The FA Pitch Improvement Programme. 

We also continue to identify and develop new 3G Football Turf Pitches and where available encourage youth leagues to centralise fixtures. 


Our training is boring and the same...

We have developed a coach CPD programme and shared this with all of the respective clubs/teams that have been surveyed.

We wouldn’t change anything, it is great fun and I see friends…

Great… we gave the feedback of the positive news to the clubs/teams involved.
