Parents/Spectators Code of Conduct

Ensure that parents/spectators within your club are always positive and encouraging towards all of the children, not just their own.

Code of Conduct for Parents/Spectators

Parents/spectators have a great influence on children’s enjoyment and success in football.  All children play football because they first and foremost love the game - it’s fun.  It is important to remember that however good a child becomes at football within your club it is important to reinforce the message to parents/ spectators that positive encouragement will contribute to:

           *           Children enjoying football

            *           A sense of personal achievement

            *           Self-esteem

            *           Assist to improve the child’s skills and technique.

 

            A parent’s/spectator’s expectations and attitudes have a significant bearing on a child’s attitude towards:

 

            *           Other players

            *           Officials

            *           Managers

            *           Spectators

 

            Ensure that parents/spectators within your club are always positive and encouraging towards all of the children, not              just their own.

 

            Encourage parents/spectators to:

 

            *           Applaud the opposition as well as your own team.

            *           Avoid coaching the child during the game.

            *           Not to shout and scream.

            *           Respect the referee’s decision.

            *           Give attention to each of the children involved in football, not

                        just the most talented.

            *           Give encouragement to everyone to participate in football.

 

            Ensure that parents/spectators within your club agree and adhere to your club’s Code of Conduct and Child                                Protection Policy.
