Fair Play & Respect Initiative
To help reinforce values of good sportsmanship, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer introduced its Fair Play & Respect Program in 2017. Clubs can choose “Fair Play” or “Respect” patches to display on their uniforms or shorts and feature signs on their fields and website.
Fair Play & Respect Program Information
Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer will cover the costs of the patches as well as shipping. It is a free program for member clubs.
Interested clubs can order patches—either Fair Play, Respect or both—from EPYSA.org. There is no limit to the amount of patches clubs can request, although Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer kindly requests that all patches get used. Orders will be collected throughout the spring and summer with the intention of having patches on uniforms prior to the start of the 2018-19 season.
Clubs can post the digital "Fair Play & Respect" banner on their website for free. Field signs can be ordered through Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer.
“In the changing world of youth soccer, sometimes we lose sight of the appropriate way to approach competition,” said Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer CEO Chris Branscome. “The Fair Play & Respect Program is a small way we can help promote these ideals with hopes of creating a better competitive environment for players, coaches, spectators and referees.”
