Conduct, respect and well-being

June 26, 2014 in Code of Conduct

securedownloadOur code of conduct is aimed at improving good practice and protecting the welfare and well-being of all those involved in the game, particularly young players. Our code is aligned with the FAW code of conduct. All those involved with the club must abide by this code.

All parents and spectators MUST watch from behind the buffer zone lines.

For Players

  • Play for the fun of it, improve your skills and feel good
  • Play well for yourself and your team. Your team’s performance will benefit and so will your own.
  • Never argue with the referee or assistant referee – use your energies to play better football.
  • Be a good sport. Recognise all good play, whether by your team or your opponents.
  • Respect other teams and players. Treat them as you would like to be treated. Do not bully.
  • Play by the laws of the game. Learn the laws of the game and you will be a much better player.
  • Co-operate with your coach, team-mates and opponents, for without them there will be no game.

For parents, guardians and spectators

  • Remember children play organised sport for their enjoyment and not to entertain you.
  • Encourage your child to play by the laws of the game, and not to argue with referees.
  • Teach your child that honest effort is more important than victory.
  • Turn losing into winning by helping your child work towards skills improvement.
  • Never ridicule a child for making a mistake or losing a game.
  • Applaud all good play by your team and the opposition.
  • Do not use profane language or harass players, managers, coaches and match officials. They are only human, have the same feelings as you and like you may make an honest error.

For coaches and team managers

  • Ensure that coaching sessions are fun, well-structured and focus on developing skill, decision-making and understanding of the game.
  • Give all players, whatever their ability, the chance to play.
  • Accept that striving to win is more important that winning itself. Always pursue fair play.
  • Never argue with the referee or assistant referee.
  • Respect other teams and players.
  • Be aware of the FAW Welfare Policy and your responsibilities.
