Respect is the best defence against abuse, violent attitudes and behaviours. Get this right at club level and people thrive, feel safe, and enjoy the pleasures and opportunities that sport provides.
Transforming a club’s culture is rewarding, well worth the effort. But first we need to understand that nothing magical occurs here. Tinkering at the edges is no answer. Changing words here and there in some club documents just won’t cut it. Strong foundations are the key.
We’re talking real intent, real purpose, real coverage, real change. Everyone has to be involved in this journey, from canteen volunteer to the president.
When people are empowered to positively influence those around them, they become change makers in their clubs and in the wider community. Whether you’re a coach, committee member, team manager, president, volunteer, parent, supporter or player, Club Respect gives you simple and effective strategies to make a positive impact in and around your club.
