Thought I would post a response from a parent to the FA's proposals to youth football, commonly known as 'Your Kids Your Say'. This is a word for word response from one individual (who wished to remain anonymous) which I thought gave an excellent summary to the common issues in grassroots football. Below is the original response in full:
Surely the whole point of grass roots coaches is for them to teach as many young children how to learn & enjoy the game of football? The more players we teach properly and manage to keep happy all the way up to 14-15 years old surely the more chance we will have of having a greater amount of top quality footballers?
