Code of Conduct (Coaches, Team Managers & Club Officials)

(Reviwed and updated 2nd June 2021)

We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game. 

As a coach, team manager or club official, you have a big part to play. That’s why The FA is asking every player to follow a Respect Code of Conduct.

On and off the field, I will:

  • Always show respect to everyone involved in the game
  • Stick to the rules and celebrate the spirit of the game
  • Encourage fair play and high standards of behaviour
  • Always respect the Referee and encourage players to do the same
  • Never enter the field of play with the referee’s permission
  • Never engage in, or tolerate offensive, insulting or abusive behaviour
  • Be aware of the potential impact of bad language on others
  • Be gracious in victory and defeat
  • Respect the facilities home and away

When working with players, I will:

  • Place the well-being, safety and enjoyment of each players above everything
  • Never tolerate any form bullying
  • Ensure all activities are suited for the players’ ability and age
  • Work with others (e.g. officials, doctors, welfare officers, physiotherapist) for each player’s best interests

I understand that if I do not follow the Code, I may be:

  • Required to meet with the club or league Welfare Officer or your CFA Designated Safeguarding Officer (DSO)
  • Suspended by the club from attending matches
  • Suspended or fined by the County FA
  • Required to leave, lose my position and/or have my licence withdrawn
