Respect’s Circle League

Our U12s play in a brilliant new format: The 9v9 Respect Circle League. Following The FA’s guidelines, the season is split into a series of colour group mini-championships with teams moving round the circle for their next set of fixtures

How it Works

Each colour group is a multi game mini-championship. Each team plays 3 x 20min games. Teams move clockwise or anti clockwise after a series of games and then we play the next round.

It’s football snakes and ladders

Why it Works

Old-fashioned league formats are pretty boring for children. After the first few weeks the league table looks pretty much the same for the rest of the season and most teams have little to play for.

The FA have proved that these out-dated kind of tables are detrimental to player development. They matter more to adults focused on results in the past than to children who are focused on what’s now and next.

Instead, The FA want shorter blocks of fixtures, and mini-championships throughout the season so that every team always has something exciting to play for.

The FA Youth Review challenged Leagues to be innovative and, once again, the Respect League is the first in the country to implement a Respect Circle League. It’s a fun variation on the Ladder Leagues used so successfully in sports like squash and tennis.
