RESPECT CODE OF CONDUCT – SPECTATORS AND PARENTS/CARERS
We all bear a collective responsibility to set a good example and help provide a positive environment in which children can learn and enjoy the game.
Play your part and observe The FA’s Respect Code of Conduct for spectators at all times
* Remember that children play for FUN.
* Applaud effort and good play as well as success.
* Respect the Referee’s decisions even when you don’t agree with them
* Appreciate good play from whatever team it comes from
* Remain behind the touchline and within the Designated Spectators’ Area (where provided)
* Let the coaches 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
* Support positively. When players make a mistake offer them encouragement not criticism
* Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting, or abusive language or behaviour
