Code of Conduct: Coaches

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

In The FA's survey of over 37,000 grassroots participants, behaviour was the biggest concern in the game. This included both the abuse of match officials and the unacceptable behaviour by over competitive parents, spectators and coaches on the sidelines.

The FA's Respect programme is aimed at tackling unacceptable behaviour across the whole game.

Play your part and observe The FA's Respect Code of Conduct for coaches, team managers and club officials at all times.

I will:

Show respect to others involved in the game including match officials, opposition players, coaches, managers, officials and spectators

Adhere to the Laws of the Game

Display and promote high standards of behaviour

Always respect the match officials' decisions

Never enter the field of play without the referee's permission

Never engage in public criticism of the match officials

Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour.

When working with players, I will:

Place the well-being, safety and enjoyment of each player above everything, including winning

Explain exactly what I expect of players and what they can expect from me

Ensure the parents/carers of all players under the age of 18 understand these expectations

Refrain from, and refuse to tolerate any form of bullying

Develop mutual trust and respect with every player to build their self-esteem

Encourage each player to accept responsibility for their own behaviour and performance

Ensure all activities I organise are appropriate for the players' ability level, experience, age and maturity

Co-operate fully with others in football (e.g. officials, doctors, physiotherapists, welfare officers) for each player's best interests

I understand that breaches of the code may result in action being taken by my County FA and /or The FA.
