Important Safety warning for anyone involved in Grassroots Football.

Please be very careful if you’re planning to get involved in grassroots football, it is not without risks.

We are involved in Grassroots Football and I feel I need to warn people of the dangers!

Beware of the risks associated with Grassroots Football, it will add happiness, it will add friends, it will improve your children health through exercise, it will increase your families social circle and social life, it will fill a part of your life that nothing else will come close to.

The risk of meeting teams, coaches, kids etc that want more from you than just a hello is insufferably high. Many coaches and league officials will want to give you their numbers and ask you to find them if you need any help. We ended up with way too many people that were willing to help us out if we had problems.

Also, you cannot go to a game without a parent, referee, coach etc wanting to have a chat and catch up with you and show genuine affection for being in the grassroots family. All these people being so friendly is very inconvenient. People in Grassroots are way too happy, relaxed, always smiling even the kids will smile, laugh and show levels of respect and integrity you won’t see anywhere else.

You will have no choice but to enjoy the ride, laugh with your football family, share in the highs and lows as one, that feeling that only being part of a team can give you, its very inconvenient.

If you accidently run into a league secretary, you will be astonished by their level of commitment and compassion they have for your team and every other team, they will talk about the game with a love so infectious it will be impossible not to be inspired, they will help you understand matters of welfare and safeguarding and show a drive and determination to make the game a better place for everyone.

Beware of the weather also. The weather is so incredible, you will be sunbathing one minute and the next you will be caught in a downpour,  annoyingly it won’t take the happiness away from these people involved in Grassroots Football, it doesn’t seem to effect them, quite worrying really. You will enjoy the great outdoors and find a love of freshly cut grass on a weekend morning, you will experience feelings you can’t get from the APP store.

After reading all this if you still want to take the risk, give a share and most importantly Welcome to the Grassroots Family!

6 minutes !!! – My son cried when he got in the car, this can’t be right…

My son, who is 8 has played for his team now for a year and a half now, I accept that he has the least ability on the team but to counter this he has the most enthusiasm.

The coach was very fair in the first season giving most kids a good run out, recently this has begun to get less and less for 2 players, my son included.

This weekend we attended a large tournament in our area and all the kids were really excited to spend the day together and play new teams.

It was clear from the first game that my son was going to have a minimal part in the tournament as he played for the last 90 seconds of the first game. I didn’t say anything and thought he will balance it out over the remaining games. Subs went on and off and each time my son looked at the coach hoping it would be him.

My heart wrenched every time my son looked at the coach, in total my son played just over 6 minutes at a full day tournament. To put this into perspective, we pay our subs like everyone else, we cancelled other plans to attend because my son wanted to play, Im sure I’m not the only one who thinks this is wrong.

My son put a brave face on until we got in the car, he instantly began crying which broke my heart, I said I would find a new team for him which made him more upset. For the first time as a mother I really didn’t know what to say or do to make things better.

The irony in all this is the coach and my son have a really close relationship and my son looks up to him like he’s a super hero. He always said that he wanted to develop his team and would be devastated if he upset any of the players. I won’t bad mouth the coach because 99% of the time he is a genuine bloke who loves the kids, anyone who met him would agree, but I think he may be so engrossed in winning the game that he’s forgetting his roots and his players.

 

The FAs guide to managing Grassroots football

So you’ve got the job. You’re the gaffer.

Whether you’re a budding Mourinho or a reluctant volunteer you’ve got the responsibility of managing the team.

You might have a detailed five-year strategy or just a few stinky bibs and some flat footballs but hopefully this resource will provide you with a few pointers in the art and science of running a grassroots (amateur Saturday or Sunday) team.
