Code Of Conduct For Parents/Guardians

Sundridge Allstars FC fully supports The English FA’s Respect campaign and acknowledges that football coaches and volunteers have a fantastic opportunity to be a positive role model for the young people involved.

We all have a responsibility to ensure that everyone involved in football finds it to be a fun, safe and positive experience.

Please show your support for The FA Safeguarding by agreeing to this declaration. By agreeing to this Code of Conduct you will demonstrate that you understand the following conditions, and breach of this could lead to disciplinary action.

Parents, guardians and spectators are expected to:

  • Show exemplary behaviour by respecting and appreciating match officials, opposition players, coaches, managers and spectators.
  • Deliver and collect your child punctually before and after training, matches and club events.

  • Never publicly criticise, ridicule or embarrass any children.
  • Ensure your child has kit and clothing appropriate to the environment and weather conditions.

  • Disclose any medical concerns or changes in medical conditions to the Club Welfare Officer, Coach and the Team Manager.
  • Not place unnecessary pressure on your child or push them into activities they do not want to do.
  • Applaud effort and good play.
  • Not to interfere with the coaches instructions and not to confuse the players by telling them what to do.
  • Encourage all children not to discriminate on the grounds of religious beliefs, race, gender, social classes or lack of ability.
  • Accept that striving to win is more important than winning itself.
  • Respect the decisions of the match officials.
  • Ensure that your child has read and understood their Code of Conduct.
  • Not to post anything inappropriate, or negative on social media which may bring the game into disrepute.
  • Display high standards, behave responsibly and never engage in or tolerate the use of foul, abusive, insulting or inappropriate words, behaviour or gestures.
