Play your part and observe The FA’s Respect Code of Conduct for spectators and parents/ carers at all times I will:

• Remember that children play for FUN.

• Applaud effort and good play as well as success

• Always Respect the match officials’ decisions

• Remain outside the field of play and within the Designated Spectators’ Area (where provided)

• Let the coach 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

• Avoid criticising a player for making a mistake – mistakes are part of learning

If you do not comply with the FA Respect codes of conduct while watching your child enjoy playing football I understand the following actions may be taken by my club, County FA or The FA:

We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game This club is supporting The FA’s Respect programme to ensure football can be enjoyed in a safe, positive environment. Remember children’s football is a time for them to develop their technical, physical, tactical and social skills. Winning isn’t everything.
