Don’t forget that this weekend is the NWYFL annual Silent Sunday event.
WHAT WE EXPECT –
*All clubs to participate
*All clubs to manage the initiative internally for total adherence
* Parents/spectators refrain from any communication to the players
*Parents/spectators refrain from any direct communication to the referee
*Parents/spectators refrain from any direct communication to the coaches
*Quiet conversation between spectators only
*Plenty of applause and praise for both sets of players from both sets of spectators.
WILL IT WORK – Of course if we want it to. We believe that everyone can make a difference, both individually and collectively.
Hopefully the day will be another success, and will allow some enjoyable football to be played in both a pleasant and safe environment, hopefully it will also prompt a bit of self-awareness of the impact we are having on the experience of young people.
So clubs – You have plenty of time to ensure this information is passed around your teams, managers, parents to ensure that everyone is aware.
We hope that you all enjoy the day and adhere to this in the spirit that it is meant.
Thank you all in advance in supporting this event.
