The Silent Support Weekend will give another opportunity for the players to do the talking in junior grassroots football, with parents and supporters showing their support from the sidelines through applause only.
Last November, we took part in the first national pilot of the Silent Support Weekend with the aim being to allow youth players to explore their own game, find their voice and take control of the game.
We are supporting a second weekend across 25-26 February 2023, to hear from our youth players and find out how to make the game better for them so they can improve as players and a team.
This time around the coaches will be permitted to coach throughout the match, with parents and supporters showing their backing from the sidelines through applause only.
This allows the players to not only step up, but feel they can get support from their coach if they need too.
Show your support through applause only when the match is in play.
