Dealing with Racism


Dealing with Racism Workshops - Wales 
Our Wales Campaign works closely with the Football Association of WalesSport Wales and the Welsh Football Trust towards challenging racism in football.

Our dealing with racism workshops are designed specifically and uniquely for players, coaches or referees.

Each specific workshop educates the participants on the topic of racism and uses scenarios that we have come across at all levels of the game to provide examples of what issues might arise for them. Through interactive discussion based activities participants explore how to deal with a racist incident and how they can report any issues they come across.
Player Training Educational Workshops

Our Academy Player Educational Workshops are designed specifically for academy players.

The program was launched in 2013 with the aim to educate young players about the topic of racism, along with how to deal with it.

Each specific workshop educates the players on the topic of racism and uses scenarios that we have come across at all levels of the game to provide examples of what issues might arise for them.

Through interactive discussion based activities players will explore how to deal with a racist incident and how they can report any issues they come across.

A key part of the session is discussing with the players their role as an academy player and their responsibilities.

We will discuss the importance of representing themselves and the club in the correct manor and the consequences of any racist actions on their career and the damaging effect it can have on the club.

There will be an opportunity to discuss the importance of using the correct terminology and what words are acceptable or not acceptable to use both in the football environment and society.

The first year of the programme highlighted the need for continual education with players in Wales.
