Lose Respect. Lose the Game.

Our Policy

Code of Conduct

The aim of our policy is to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect and that our club is equally accessible to all. The safety and welfare of our players is our number one priority.

Our policy sets out standards we expect from our Players, Spectators, Coaches, Team Managers and Officials. Click here to see our code of conducts.

Players: You are the most important people in the sport. Playing for the team, and for the team to win, is the most fundamental part of the game, but not winning at any cost. Fair Play and respect for all others in the game is fundamentally important.

Spectators: Children play football because they enjoy it and its fun. It is important to remember that irrespective of a child’s ability. 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 F.A’s Respect Code of Conduct for spectators at all times.

Coaches: Our priority is the development of our players. With FA qualified coaches leading each team, we all aim to provide a positive environment in which children can learn and enjoy the game, abiding by the FA’s Respect Code of Conduct at all times.
