Luton Allstars Code of Conduct
As a football club in its infancy, we feel it is essential that we ensure that the image and reputation of our club is not only one that will be respected but also followed by others.

Due to this vision we feel it necessary to remind our members, coaches, players, referees and parents of our code of conduct, with the intent of enforcing any sanctions and penalties vigorously.

To help us enforce our code of conduct effectively, we will be asking a parent from each team to take the role as an outside reporter and they will report back any issues that do not appear to be part of our code of conduct.

We have to take these measures, as if we allow the poor behavior in grassroots football, our club could be suspended as a result, by the FA.
