Derbyshire FA Launches Third Grassroots Football Survey

The FA and Derbyshire FA have today launched the 2017 Grassroots Football Survey.

The Grassroots Football Survey offers unparalleled insight into the amateur game in Derbyshire by providing a platform for those directly involved in the game to give feedback using an online poll.

Across the country, 28,750 and 30,161 people – including; players, coaches, referees, staff and general volunteers – demonstrated a commitment to improving football at a grassroots level by completing the 2015 and 2016 versions of the survey respectively.

Kelly Simmons, Director of Participation and Development, said: “Since launching in 2015, the Grassroots Survey has started to become a fixture of the football season at this level.

“The past two editions have informed our understanding of the game by providing those that know and understand it best with an opportunity to have their voices heard.

“The real and measurable feedback provided in this survey will allow us to continue prioritising and maximising in the areas that really matter, so I would encourage everyone from Derbyshire who is directly involved in the game to take part.”

Responses in previous years have successfully highlighted areas of particular importance to the community in Derbyshire, including; rating of pitch availability and quality, parent’s opinions as to the standard of football played by their children and receiving useful updates relating to grassroots football.

It is hoped that this year’s edition will draw in an even greater level of responses, highlight progress made and indicate any remaining challenges in order to deliver open and flexible playing opportunities For All.
