Codes of Conduct

The FFA Code of Ethics

This code is designed:

F  To emphasise the elements of enjoyment and satisfaction to junior players and coaches involved in soccer.

F  To make adults including parents and coach’s aware that young player’s play soccer to satisfy themselves and not necessarily to satisfy adults or members of their own peer group.

F  To improve the overall health and fitness of Australia’s youth by encouraging participation in soccer and making it attractive, safe and enjoyable for all to play.

F  To remind administrator’s, coach’s, referee’s and parents that soccer must be administered, taught and provided, for the good of those young people who wish to play soccer, as ultimately “It is their game”.

Coaches

The principles below should be used as a guide (but not limited to) for Coaches as members of Eschol Park Football Club:

  • Adhere to the Clubs Equal Playing Opportunities Policy.   Ensure that the time players spend with you is a positive experience.   All junior players are deserving of equal attention and opportunities.
  • Avoid overplaying the talented players, the just average need and deserve equal time.
  • Be reasonable in the demands of your players.
  • Show concern and caution towards sick and injured players.   Follow the advice of a physician (if available) when determining whether an injured player is ready to recommence training or competition.
  • Operate within the rules of the game and teach your players to do the same.
  • Demonstrate respect for team mates, opponents, match officials and team officials.   Your Players are most likely very young and impressionable, if they see you doing it, they will believe that is the correct thing to do.
  • Plan training so that Players are learning by doing.   Too much talking creates boredom.
  • Make a personal commitment to keep yourself informed of sound coaching principals.   Schedule training and competition for the maturity and level of the Players.
  • Ensure equipment and facilities meet safety standards appropriate for the age and ability of the Players.
  • Never argue with or publicly question the Referees or Assistant Referees judgement or honesty.   If you disagree, approach the official during a break or after the game to seek clarification.
  • Eliminate verbal and physical abuse from all sporting activities.   Refer to the Child Protection Act 1998.   Breaches of this Act will not be tolerated by the Committee.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
  • Remember the Coach and Manager are part of the team and should support each other.

Team Managers

The principles below should be used as a guide (but not limited to) for Managers as members of Eschol Park Football Club:

  • Adhere to the Clubs Equal Playing Opportunities Policy.   Assist the Coach where necessary to achieve this.
  • Operate within the rules of the game and teach your players to do the same.
  • Demonstrate respect for team mates, opponents, match officials and team officials.   Your Players are most likely very young and impressionable, if they see you doing it, they will believe that is the correct thing to do.
  • Never argue with or publicly question the Referees or Assistant Referees judgement or honesty.   If you disagree, approach the official during a break or after the game to seek clarification.
  • Be reasonable in the demands of your Players.
  • Eliminate verbal and physical abuse from all sporting activities.   Refer to the Child Protection Act 1998.   Breaches of this Act will not be tolerated by the Committee.
  • Encourage a positive attitude from Parents, Coaches and Players.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
  • Remember the Coach and Manager are part of the team and should support each other.

Players

The principles below should be used as a guide (but not limited to) for players as members of Eschol Park Football Club:

  • Play by the rules.
  • Never argue with the Referee or Assistant Referee.   If you disagree, have your captain, coach or manager approach the official during a break or after the game.
  • Control your temper.   Verbal abuse of officials and sledging other players, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable of permitted behaviours in any sport.
  • Work equally hard for yourself and your team.   Your team’s performance will benefit and so will you.
  • Be a good sport.   Applaud all good plays whether they are by your team or the opposition.
  • Treat all participants, as you would like to be treated.
  • Co-operate with your Coach, Manager and team mates at all times, without them there would be no game.
  • Participate for your own fun and enjoyment and not just to please parents and coaches.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

Parents / Guardians / Spectators

The principles below should be used as a guide (but not limited to) for Parents / Guardians as members of Eschol Park Football Club:

  • Encourage a child to participate, but do not force them if they are not willing.
  • Focus on the child’s honest effort and performance rather than the overall outcome of the game.   Always find the positive, never look for the negative!
  • Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake.
  • Remember that children are involved in sport for their enjoyment, not the enjoyment of the parent/guardian.
  • Children learn best by example, applaud good play by all teams.
  • Do not publicly question the Referees or Assistant Referees judgement or honesty.   If you disagree with an official, raise the issue through the appropriate channels.   Remember they give up their time for your child’s enjoyment.
  • Eliminate verbal and physical abuse from all sporting activities.   Refer to the Child Protection Act 1998.   Breaches of this Act will not be tolerated by the Committee.
  • Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, managers, officials and administrators, without them, your child would not participate.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
  • Encourage children always to play according to the rules and to settle disagreements without resorting to hostility or violence.
  • Actively assist the club when asked to do so.
