Respect Code of Conduct for Spectators and Parents/Carers

We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game.
Longlevens Infants Football 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.
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 behind the Respect Barriers (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
• Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting, or abusive language or behaviour
• I understand that if I do not follow the Code, any or all of the following actions may be taken by my club, the League, County FA or The FA:
I may be:
• Issued with a verbal warning from a Club or League official
• Required to meet with the Club, League or CFA Welfare Officer
• Required to meet with the Club or League Committee
• Obliged to undertake an FA education course
• Obliged to leave the match venue by the Club or League
• Requested by the Club or League not to attend future games
• Suspended or have my Club membership removed
• Required to leave the Club along with any dependents
In addition:
• The FA or County FA could impose a fine and/or suspension on the club
