Young Players


We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game.
As a player, you have a big part to play. That’s why The FA is asking every player to follow a Respect Code of Conduct.

When playing football, I will:

  • Always play to the best of my ability
  • Play fairly – I won’t cheat, complain  or waste time 
  •  Respect my team-mates, the other team, the referee   or my coach/manager
  • Play by the rules, as directed by  the referee
  • Shake hands with the other team and referee at the end of the game
  • Listen and respond to what my coach/team manager tells me
  • Talk to someone I trust or the club welfare  officer  if  I’m  unhappy  about  anything at  my club.

I understand that if I do not follow the Code, any/all of the following actions may be taken by my club, County FA or The FA:

I may:

  • Be required to apologise to my team-mates, the other team, referee or team manager 
  • Receive a formal warning from the coach  or the club committee
  • Be dropped or substituted 
  • Be suspended from training 
  • Be required to leave the club.

In addition:

  • My club, County FA or The FA may make  my   parent or carer aware of any infringements of   the Code of Conduct
  • The FA/County FA could impose a fine  and   suspension against my club.
