Toddington Rovers FC Code of Conduct

Players Code of Conduct

Players are the most important part of any sport. Playing for the team to win, is the most fundamental part of the game of football. But not winning at any cost - fair play and respect to all others in the game is just as fundamentally important.

At Toddington Rovers Youth Football Club we ask that each player abides by the following Code of Conduct.

  • Make every effort to develop personal sporting abilities in terms of skill, technique, tactics and stamina.
  • Give maximum effort and strive for the best performance regardless of the match situation.
  •  Avoid all forms of gamesmanship and time wasting.
  •  Not use inappropriate or foul language.
  • Know and abide by the laws, rules and sprit of the game.
  • Accept success and failure, victory and defeat equally and with good grace.
  • Show due respect towards opponents at all time regardless of the result of the game.
  • Show respect towards and accept the decisions of the Match officials without protest at all times.
  • Abide by the instructions of the Manager/Coach provided they do not contradict the sprit of the code.

Disciplinary Issues

Regrettably it has been necessary to include this extract from the Beds FA Handbook giving a schedule of fines and suspensions that a player could be liable to if cautioned by a match official.

It is hoped that good disciplinary record of the club will be maintained and it is the responsibility of the players, parents and managers to control their behaviour, regardless of the provocation.

The club will follow the principle that the referee's decision is final and the referee, be he officially appointed or not, is the sole arbiter of upholding the laws of the game on the field of play. Consequently appeals based on an opinion that the referee was wrong will rarely if ever succeed. Don't allow yourself to get to into this position by controlling your behaviour both on and off the pitch especially with regard to opinions about match officials competence.

Please also be aware that club rules allow for disciplinary measures to be taken against any player or supporter. This may be in addition to any official punishment determined by Beds FA.

In addition, the payments of any fines incurred are the responsibility of the player.

It is hoped that by issuing you with this schedule it will encourage players and supporters to continue to behave in an appropriate manner befitting a club of the status of Toddington Rovers Youth Football Club.

Manager and Coaches Code of Conduct

Toddington Rovers Youth Football Club we ask our Managers and Coaches to abide and respect the following Code of Conduct.

  • Provide equal opportunity for all players regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, colour, ethnic origin or ability.
  • Team managers are expected to support and carry out these principles on behalf of the playing side of the club.
  • In line with the Club Rules be responsible for attending Committee meetings and reporting on the progress of their team or in the event of their unavailability arranging for a representative of the team to attend on their behalf.
  • Be responsible for the accurate and timely collection of membership fees. These should be forwarded to the Treasurer in a timely manner but not less than once a month.
  • Be responsible for the kit and equipment provided by the club and provide a detailed list of kit and equipment as and when requested by the Club Committee.
  • Ensure that changing rooms at our grounds are supervised at all times and ensure that they are left in a condition you would expect to find them in.
  • Complete all relevant administrative duties associated with their team in a timely and accurate manner reducing the likelihood of the club being fined.
  • Show due respect to match officials, visiting supporters and players at all times.
  • Accept the decisions of the Match Officials. ·Not use or tolerate the use of inappropriate language.
  • Set a positive example for the players to follow endorsing and supporting the Code of Conduct for Players.

The Manager is the public face of the club for their team and as such has a responsibility to maintain the good name of the club in all their actions and deeds.

Parents and Spectators Code of Conduct

The club would not exist without the support and the enthusiasm of parents and supporters however they have a responsibility to the club and the game of football in the way in which they behave.

At Toddington Rovers Football Club we ask all parents and supporters to abide by the following code of conduct.

  • Show due respect to the Match Officials, visiting supporters and players at all times.
  • Accept the decisions of Match Officials.
  • Show due respect to all players, coaches and committee members of Toddington Rovers FC.
  • Give priority to the efforts of the team over individual interests.
  • Not use or tolerate the use of inappropriate or foul language.
  • Set a positive example for the players to follow.
  • Raise any concerns or worries with the respective team manager in the first instance.
  • Raise the matter with the club committee if the answer provided is unsatisfactory.

Please try to remember that the club is run for the benefit of the boys and girls that join to play football.

We are all exposed to the game at the highest level week in and week out but our club exists because of the hard work and effort of a few who are prepared to devote many hours of their time for no reward for the benefit of the players.
