Debbie Sayers is the Club Secretary and Welfare Officer of Salisbury Rovers FC. When the club was founded, they were very open, honest & forthright with their three pledges.
Provide the best quality of environment
Allow kids to play with freedom
Develop the whole child
Although these may be things we all think we might do, Debbie & the team at Salisbury Rovers truly adopt a child-centred approach and I encourage you to check out the work they do on their website https://www.salisburyroversfc.co.uk/ - but I will highlight the 8th point on their club rules, which I think sums it up nicely.
'8. Kids' voices will always be louder than the adults. We are not concerned with adult needs or egos. It's their game, let them play!'
If you work in grassroots football or within a Junior Academy - you won't want to miss this!
