The FA Charter Standard Club Programme

Respect Code of Conduct for Parents/Supporters/Carers

We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game.
This club is supporting the FA's Respect programme to ensure football can be enjoyed in a safe, positive environment.
Remember, children's football is a time for them to develop their technical, physical, tactical and social skills, winning isn't everything.
Play your part and observe the FA's Respect Code of Conduct for spectators/parents/carers a all times:
  • Remember that children play for FUN
  • Applaud effort and good play as well as success
  • Always respect the match officials' decisions
  • Remain outside the field of play and within the Designated Spectators' Area (where provided)
  • Let the coach do their job and not confuse the players by telling them what to do
  • Encourage the players to respect the opposition, referee and match officials
  • Avoid criticising a player for making a mistake - mistakes are part of learning
  • Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour

I understand that if I do not follow the Code, any/all of the following actions may be taken by my club, County FA, league or The FA.
