                                 Code Of Conduct

For Parents and Spectators

Parents/Spectators have a great influence on children s enjoyment and success in
football. Children play the game because they first and foremost love the game-its
fun! It is important to remember that however good a child becomes at football at
SGFC, It is important to reinforce the message to parents/spectators that positive
encouragement will contribute to:

   -   Children enjoying football
   -   A sense of personal achievement
   -   Self esteem
   -   Improving the child’s skill and techniques.

A parent/spectator expectations and attitudes have a significant bearing on the child’s
attitude towards:

   -   Other players
   -   Officials
   -   Managers
   -   Spectators

It is important at Stoke Gabriel F.C that we ensure that parents and spectators within
the club are positive and encouraging towards all children not just their own.

   -   Applaud the opposition
   -   Avoid coaching the child during the game
   -   Not to shout or scream
   -   Respect the referees decision
   -   Give the attention to each of the children not just the most talented
   -   Give encouragement to everyone to participate in football

SGFC will ensure that parents/ spectators agree and adhere to the Clubs Code of
Conduct and Child Protection Policy.
