Codes of Conduct
Worthing Town Football Club Codes of Conduct aren't new, but often they are forgotten and not acted upon. Respect brings them to life.
By supporting and strengthening the Codes of Conduct with possible consequences. There is little point in having a set of rules if no action is taken if and when they're broken.
SPECTATORS & PARENTS/CARERS
Worthing Town Football Club is supporting The Football Association’s Respect programme to ensure football can be enjoyed in a safe, positive environment.
Remember children’s football is a time for them to develop their technical, physical, tactical and social skills. Winning isn’t everything.
As a player, of Worthing Town Football Club, you have a big part to play. That’s why The Football Association is asking every player to follow a Respect Code of Conduct.
Players tell us they want a referee for every match, yet thousands of match officials drop out because of the abuse and intimidation they receive on and off the pitch. Respect your referee today and you may just get one for every match this season.
Play your part and observe The Football Association’s Respect Code of Conduct for players at all times.
COACHES, TEAM MANAGERS & CLUB OFFICIALS
In The Football Association’s survey of 37,000 grassroots participants, behaviour was the biggest concern in the game. This included the abuse of match officials and the unacceptable behaviour of over competitive parents, spectators and coaches on the sideline.
At Worthing Town Football Club we will play our part and observe The Football Association’s Respect Code of Conduct in everything we do.
The behaviour of the match officials has an impact, directly and indirectly, on the conduct of everyone involved in the game – both on the pitch and on the sidelines.
