Checklist

 

What is the Silent Weekend?

The weekend will involve coaches and spectators having minimal verbal contact throughout games, to raise awareness of the need to create a positive and pressure- free environment in which children can enjoy football and learn to love and develop their game. We have seen similar initiatives being reported as a major success in other League and Counties, https://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/10693435/Sound-of-silence-speaks-volumes-about-bawling-parents.html 

 


What are the coaches supposed to do if they can’t communicate?

Coaches are encouraged to give clear instructions to players before the game starts, take notes during the game
and utilise half time or designated quarters to communicate to players positively. Also, coaches can communicate to players through the captain or substitutes during suitable breaks in play.

 

We hope with your support you will encourage parents and spectators to take part and spread awareness of this fantastic initiative. Please take time to read over the DO’s & DON’Ts for all parties.
