BSFA Codes of Conduct

For Players

  • Play football for the fun and enjoyment of it – not just to please your parents or coaches.
  • Always play by the rules
  • Never question referees’ or assistant referees’ decisions.
  • Always control your temper.
  • Work equally hard for both yourself and the team. In this way, your team’s performance will benefit – and so will your own.
  • Be a good sport. Appreciate all good play whether by your team or your opponents.
  • Treat all players as you would like to be treated – with respect. Don’t interfere with, bully, or take unfair advantage of anyone.
  • Remember that the real goals of the game are to enjoy it, improve your skills and feel good – don’t show off.
  • Co-operate with coaches, team mates and opponents – without them you don’t have a game.

For Parents

  • Remember that children are involved in sport for their enjoyment and benefit –   not yours.
  • Always encourage your child to play by the rules.
  • Teach your child that losing must be accepted without undue disappointment.
  • Never ridicule children for making a mistake.
  • Do not coach either your child or other team members.
  • Never question the officials’ judgement – nor their honesty.
  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from the game.
  • Monitor the number of games your child plays.
  • Make sure your child has fully recovered from injury before playing again.
