We believe positivity leads to a better game, a safer, healthier, more inclusive and more enjoyable game. A game with more Respect
That’s why we’re asking all our clubs, leagues, players, coaches, volunteers, parents and carers to support the Positivity Always Wins campaign to build positivity in football across Hertfordshire.
Positivity Always Wins
It embraces differences, promotes inclusivity, and keeps our head in the game. 90% of young players play better with positive encouragement. Nine out of 10. Let that sink in. Positivity from parents, carers, coaches, officials, older players, teammates. Together, we can all make our game stronger.
Show Your Support
There are a whole range of free resources you can use to promote Respect and positivity across Hertfordshire clubs and leagues. Free resources include Codes of Conduct, Safeguarding Resources, Posters and Leaflets, Social Media Assets and a Positivity Handbook.

• Volunteers making the game more inclusive
