Respect is The FA’s programme of activities to combat unacceptable behaviour in our game at every level – on the pitch, and from the sidelines. West Riding County FA are highly committed to ensuring football at all levels is a safe and enjoyable experience for everybody involved in the game.

Addressing unacceptable behaviour was the No.1 priority emerging from the biggest opinion survey to date of grassroots football in England. Respect will also provide added momentum behind four National Game Strategy priorities:

Referee recruitment and retention, participation within youth football, coaching and player development and safeguarding children.

Assaults on referees are down 13 % year-on-year.

Experience of the game 
40% of the grassroots football community has seen their experience of the game improve as a result of measures introduced through the Respect programme according to a national survey.

Support within the game
17,000 FA coaches were trained in Respect measures last season and 752 leagues have signed up to Respect nationally.
