Code of Conduct / Respect 4 of 9

4. Code of Conduct Spectators

Waltham Abbey FC has adopted the FA Code of Conduct for Spectators and ask that all members read and respect the code.

Code of Conduct: Spectators

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

This club is supporting The FA's Respect programme to ensure football can be enjoyed by everyone in a safe and positive environment.

Play your part and observe The FA's Respect Code of Conduct for spectators and parents/carers at all times.

I will:

Remain outside the field of play and behind the Designated Spectator Area (where provided)
Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour
Always respect the match officials' decisions
Applaud effort and good play as well as success

In addition, when attending youth games I will:

Remember that children play for FUN
Let the coaches do their job and not confuse the players by telling them what to do
Encourage the players to respect the opposition and match officials
Never criticise a player for making a mistake -mistakes are part of learning

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