NJYS RESPECT CAMPAIGN



Introducing the NJYS Respect Campaign

NJ Youth Soccer has officially launched the NJYS Respect Campaign, designed to improve the local soccer community and the experiences of all involved, both on and off the field. 

How to Get Involved

Recognize and acknowledge an act of respect by a player, coach, parent, referee or administrator. If you observe someone taking the extra step to promote a more respectful atmosphere around youth soccer, we encourage you to nominate them as an NJYS Respect Ambassador by filling out the form at this link.

NJ Youth Soccer will review nominations and recognize one (1) nominee each month as the NJYS Respect Campaign winner. The recipient will receive an award courtesy of various NJYS partners (e.g. New York Red Bulls, Gotham FC and Philadelphia Union). The recipient will also be recognized via NJYS digital communications (e.g. website, social media and monthly newsletters).  

To further advance respect in the game, we also encourage members to post a picture on social media that portrays and describes the observed respectful act. Make sure to use the hashtag #NJYSRespect and tag @NJYouthSoccer on the post so they can be recognized by our state association.

Purpose of the Respect Campaign

The attitudes and behaviors of young people are shaped by those around them, and it is important to surround them with positive influences on and off the field. That means promoting respectful behavior between teammates and opponents, parents, referees, coaches and administrators.

Youth sports are as much about learning life lessons as they are learning the sport on the field. All of us at NJ Youth Soccer want to encourage everyone to work together to ensure our players are learning and implementing inclusion, acceptance, unity and respect in our soccer community.

This is not a temporary campaign but an ongoing commitment to improve behavior in New Jersey Youth Soccer. We thank you in advance for helping us create a more positive, inclusive and respectful environment for the game we all love.
