Code of Conduct for Parents

Parents & Spectators have a great influence on children’s enjoyment and success in football. All children play football because they first and foremost love the game – its fun. It is important to remember that however good a child becomes at football within our club we believe that it is important to reinforce the message to parents & spectators that positive encouragement will contribute to:

  1. Children enjoying football
  2. A sense of personal achievement
  3. Self-esteem
  4. Improving the child’s skills and techniques

Parents & Spectator’s expectations and attitudes have a significant bearing on a child’s attitude towards:

  1. Other players
  2. Officials
  3. Managers & Coaches
  4. Spectators

We strive to ensure that Parents & Spectators within our club are always positive and encouraging towards all of the children not just their own.

We encourage Parents & Spectators to:

  1. Applaud the opposition as well as your own team.
  2. Avoid coaching the child during the game
  3. Not to shout and scream
  4. Respect the referee’s decisions
  5. Give encouragement to everyone to participate in football

We strive to ensure that Parents & Spectators within our club agree and adhere to our club’s Code of Conduct and Child Protection Policy.
