Introduced in 2016, the NWSF RESPECT program is an ongoing journey to change to culture in Football to a consistently positive and rewarding one. We are aiming to emphasise that, while winning is important as a measure of achievement; it is not the only measure out there. Setting your own goals and achieving them can be just as fulfilling for teams and individuals.
The Fundamental Aim of the RESPECT program is:
To encourage Respect to:
- The match officials, without whom the game would be much less enjoyable
- The opposition, without whom there would be no game
- The laws, which keep the game fair and safe
- Yourself, set yourself standards and stick to them no matter what anyone else does
