As a player, you have a big part to play. That's why The FA is asking every player to follow a Respect Code of Conduct.
  • When playing football, I will:Always do my best, even if we're losing or the other team is stronger
  • Play fairly - I won't cheat, complain or waste time 
  • Never be rude to my team-mates, the other team, the referee, spectators or my coach/team manager 
  •  Do what the referee tells me
  • Shake hands with the other team and referee at the end of the game 
  •  Listen to my coach/team manager and respect what he/she says 
  • Talk to someone I trust, for example my parents or the club welfare officer if I'm unhappy about anything at my club.
  • I understand that if I do not follow the code, action may be taken
Coaches have a hugely important role to play in Respect, as they are not only responsible for their own behaviour, but they can also influence that of their players and spectators, too.
On a matchday, you'll be expected to work with your players, parents and other spectators to allow the referee to manage the game without being subjected to abuse.
  • Show respect to others involved in the game including match officials,opposition players, coaches, managers, officials and spectators
  • Adhere to the Laws of the Game
  • Display and promote high standards of behaviour
  • Always respect the match officials’ decisions
  • Never enter the field of play without the referee’s permission
  • Never engage in public criticism of the match officials
  • Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour
Parents have a big responsibility as part of the Respect programme.
Respect is working to eradicate touchline abuse in football, and parents can play their part by agreeing to, and signing, their club's Code of Conduct and abiding by them throughout the season.
  • Remain outside the field of play and behind the Designated Spectator Area (where provided)
  • Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour
  • Always respect the match officials' decisions 
  • Applaud effort and good play ( of both teams ) as well as success
     In addition, when attending youth games I will:
  • Remember that children play for FUN
  • Let the coaches do their job and not confuse the players by telling them what to do
  • Encourage the players to respect the opposition and match officials
  • Never criticise a player for making a mistake -mistakes are part of learning
