Code of Conduct Players

Player’s Code of Conduct
Arrive for training and matches in good time to prepare thoroughly.
Play for your own fun and enjoyment and the love of the game - not just to please your parents and coach.
Learn and play by the rules
Never argue with a referee or assistant referee (official) – use your energies for playing better. If you disagree, have your captain, coach or team manager approach the official on your behalf, during the break or after the completion of the match.
Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials or other players, or deliberately fouling, distracting or provoking an opponent, are all unacceptable behaviours and not permitted in soccer.
Be a good sport - win with modesty, lose with dignity. Recognise and applaud all good plays whether they are by your team or the opposition.
Treat all players, as you would like to be treated. Do not interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of another player or competitor.
Co-operate with your coach, team mates and opponents. Without them there would be no game.
Work equally hard for yourself and your team – your team’s performance will benefit and so will you.
Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants, regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
Always thank officials and opponents at the end of every game
