Children in soccer are entitled to: 

  • Be safe;
  • Participate in football on an equal basis; appropriate to their ability and stage of development;
  • Be happy, have fun and enjoy football;
  • Be afforded appropriate confidentially and;
  • Be listened to and to be believed.

In this respect, children should also be encouraged to realise that they also have a responsibility to treat other children, referees, fellow players, managers, coaches and volunteers with the same degree of fairness and respect that is afforded to them.

Children should undertake not to:

  • Cheat;
  • Use abusive language or argue with managers, coaches, referees, officials, teammates or opponents;
  • Use violence (physical contact may only we used within the rules of the game);
  • Disrespect their managers/coaches instructions; and
  • Disrespect the clubs equipment and gear (if any player causes any damage or losses their gear, they will incur the cost of replacing same)

Parents/Guardians should:

  • Find out what their child/children want from football;

  • Attend training and games;
  • Teach their child to respect referees, managers, coaches, officials and spectators regardless of their race, creed, religion, colour, sex or ability;
  • Give the manager/coach help when asked;
  • Support the manager/coach decisions;
  • Inform the manager/coach by either a call or text if their child is unavailable for training/match. All parents are requested to attend matches (home and away)and training, as it is unfair to leave the responsibility of their child to other parents.
