  • Understand that children play football for their own enjoyment and not yours , they are not there to entertain you and they are not all miniature David Beckhams

 

  • DO NOT play your football through them.

 

  • Encourage your child to play within the laws of the game and to learn from the rather than argue with match officials. Ensure that you understand the laws of the game to better understand what you are watching and commenting on.

 

  • Educate your child as to the fact that honest effort is more important than winning so that the result of each game may be accepted without undue disappointment.

 

  • Never ridicule or berate your child for making a mistake or a disappointing result.

 

  • Remember children learn by best example/positive applaud all good play whether by your own team or the opposition. Respect your opponents. Treat others as you like to be treated.

 

  • DO NOT question the Referees judgement or their honesty. Remembering that they are human and we all make honest mistakes.

 

  • Maintain high standards of behaviour . Refrain from the use profane language do not harass physically or verbally abuse players, managers , coaches referees or officials.

 

  • Recognised the value, importance and commitment of the managers and coaches who provide the opportunity , free of charge so that your child can play football.

 

  • Remember a manager has the interest of all the children and the team to consider. Managers decisions are often made making allowances for factors that you are not aware of.

 

  • Support your managers on match days. Putting up and taking down the nets ,corner flags can be a great help providing more time for the coach to prepare the team.
