Grassroots Football Survey pitch

Have your say! 2019/20 Grassroots Football Survey launched

The FA announces its annual survey for players, coaches, parents, supporters, volunteers, referees, club and league officials across the island.

The Football Association [The FA] has today announced its annual survey for participants in Jersey to provide feedback on the grassroots football provision in the local area.

Players, coaches, parents, supporters, volunteers, referees, club and league officials across the island now have the opportunity to highlight areas where they require support, suggest areas for improvement and outline the impact of particular campaigns or schemes.

Since the online survey was originally launched, the responses of more than 100,000 grassroots participants have helped to inform the decision making and allocation of resources by The FA and respective County FAs, including the Jersey FA. Results from the 2018/19 edition identified five key areas – both on and off the pitch – where a renewed focus is required:

  • Identify the resources and tools that clubs need the most support with
  • Foster the right experience for participants at this level of the game
  • Encourage young people to stay active in different roles across the game
  • Ensure the RESPECT campaign has a positive impact on all participants
  • Adapt to the changing nature of modern grassroots football

Jean-Luc Desbois, Jersey Football Association CEO, said: “The Grassroots Football Survey is a vital piece of work, helping the Jersey FA decide upon priorities and further understand the challenges being faced.

“This is your opportunity to tell us how we can improve your experience in football, as well as letting us know what we’re getting right.

“We’d strongly encourage everyone involved in football locally to complete the online survey on our website to give us an accurate picture of the health of the sport."
