FA Respect programme

We look at how the issue of over-eager parents is dealt with in England.

The UEFA Training Ground speaks to Kelly Simmons and Dermot Collins from the Football Association to find out more about the Respect programme - shortlisted in the Best Project category at the 2010 UEFA Grassroots Day Awards - which is trying to ensure respect for referees and a more relaxed attitude from parents towards youngsters playing the game. In part one of our feature we concentrate on the issues of over-enthusiastic parents and respect in schools.
