Stalbridge Youth FC - Respect Conduct - Spectators




If we behave positively during practice and matches, our children will too.  By setting a good example, we’ll help build a supportive environment in which everyone can enjoy themselves.

Play your part and support The FA’s Code of Respect:

•   Have fun; it’s what we’re all here for!
•   Celebrate effort and good play from both sides
•   Always respect the Referee and coaches and encourage players to do the same
•   Stay behind the touchline and within the Designated Spectators’ Area (where provided)
•   When players make mistakes offer them encouragement to try again next time
•   Never engage in, or tolerate offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour

Code of Conduct:

   Applaud the opposition as well as your own team;

   Avoid coaching your child during the game;

   Respect the Referee’s decisions;

   Do not shout, scream or use inappropriate language;

   Give attention to each child involved in football, not just the most talented;

   Respect other players, officials, managers and spectators;

   Encourage a sense of personal achievement, self-esteem, improvement of skills and techniques and the
enjoyment of playing football;

   Ensure that your child has appropriate footwear, shin pads, clothing and a drink


I  understand that if I do not follow the Code of Conduct, I could be:

•   Issued with a verbal warning or asked to leave
•   Required to meet with the Club Committee, local youth league or County FA Welfare Officer
•   Obliged to undertake an FA education course
•   Requested not to attend future games, be suspended or have my membership removed and/or issued with a fine
