The FA's "Respect" initiative is all about increasing players' enjoyment of the game by actively promoting respect for match officials, opposing players, team-mates and coaches. It's an initiative we at Robins FC are fully behind, as we believe are all the teams in the NWYFL, and it's something we try to instill in the players at all age levels. Please download and read the appropriate guidelines for players, parents etc below.
The players are children
The referees are volunteers
