Coaches will : 

• Use positive reinforcement when dealing with players. 

• Never use foul or abusive language and never abuse a player mentally, verbally, or physically. 

• Teach your children the rules of the game, fair play, and proper behaviour. 

• Develop your child’s technique and their decision-making ability. 

• Inspect the playing area for hazards and generally make practice sessions and matches as safe as possible for
your children. You should be aware, however, that football is a contact sport and your child may be injured. If this happens, we will provide appropriate first aid.

In addition: 

• We will not allow a child to take part in a practice session or a match if they are injured. 


• We will not leave your child unattended at a practice session or a game. 

• We will only allow your child to leave a practice session or a game if a responsible person collects them, unless you give permission for your child to leave with others or on their own. 

• We will try our best to make the game enjoyable for everyone who takes part; players, opponents, parents/carers and spectators. 

• As a coach I do not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, colour, disability and I will treat all players, coaches and officials fairly and as individuals.
