It covers: The youth soccer context - twenty-first century family life, the sports policy background, and the organisation, governance and culture of the English game Research findings - the experiences of children and young people, parents and carers, coaches, teachers, referees, Child Protection Officers, Football Development Officers, and those involved in women's, disability and professional soccer Issues in social policy research - methodological, ethical and management challenges Conclusions and implications - the benefits and limitations of different approaches to the protection of children and young people in sport.
