On 2nd-3rd March, the North Wilts Youth Football League will be asking Clubs in our league to keep their sidelines silent, apart from the applause.

This will give players the freedom to learn for themselves, coaches a safe space to teach without interruptions, and spectators the chance to step back and enjoy the game.

What is Silent Support?
Silent Support helps create a more positive space for players, coaches and spectators. The idea is to cut down on unnecessary distraction from the sidelines.

For players?

They’ll be doing all the talking. This is an opportunity for them to find their voice and explore their game, without any distractions.

For coaches?

When the game is in play, coaches can either join in the silent support, or coach around the match. Either way, they champion the voices on the pitch.

For spectators?

We’re asking anyone on the sidelines to show your support with applause only. When the noise stops, they become unstoppable.

Your silence speaks volumes. Let’s see the difference it makes on the pitch.
