FA LAUNCHES THIRD GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL SURVEY
The Football Association [The FA] has today launched the 2017 Grassroots Football Survey.
The Grassroots Football Survey offers unparalleled insight into the amateur game by providing a platform for those directly involved to give feedback using an online poll.
28,750 and 30,161 people – including; players, coaches, referees, staff and general volunteers – demonstrated a commitment to improving the game at a grassroots level in England by completing the 2015 and 2016 versions of the survey respectively.
Kelly Simmons, Director of Participation and Development, said: “Since launching in 2015, the Grassroots Football Survey is becoming a fixture of the football season at this level.
“The past two editions have informed our understanding of the game by providing those that know and understand it best with an opportunity to have their voices heard.
“The real and measurable feedback provided in this survey will allow us to continue prioritising and maximising in the areas that really matter, so I would encourage everyone who is directly involved in the game to take part.”
Responses in previous years have successfully highlighted areas of particular importance to the grassroots community, including; general satisfaction with County FAs, rating of pitch availability and quality, parent's opinions as to the standard of football played by their children and receiving updates from The FA and County FAs.
It is hoped that this year's edition will draw in an even greater level of responses, highlight progress made and indicate any remaining challenges in order to deliver open and flexible playing opportunities For All.
