.Welcome to the League of Respect
West London Royal Football League
Respect is the collective responsibility of everyone involved in football to create a fair, safe and enjoyable environment in which the game can take place. These are some of the outcomes from the 2010/11 season.
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
Respect Code of Conduct
Coaches, Team Managers
and Club Officials
We all bear a collective responsibility to set a goodexample and help provide a positive environment in which children can learn and enjoy the game.
Play your part and observe The FA’s Respect Code of Conduct at all times.
On and off the field, I will:
• Use my position to set a positive example for the people I am responsible for
• Show respect to others involved in the game including match officials, opposition players, coaches, managers, officials and spectators
• Adhere to the laws and spirit of the game
• Promote Fair Play and high standards of behaviour
• Respect the match official’s decision
• Never enter the field of play without the referee’s permission
• Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour
• Be aware of the potential impact of bad language on other participants, facility users or neighbours
• Be gracious in victory and defeat
Whether you're in the starting team or on the bench, your role as a player is crucial to the success of Respect.
On a matchday, you'll be expected to work with your coaches and your captain to allow the referee to manage the game without being subjected to abuse. With the game losing thousands of referees from the game every year, it's hugely important, because without the referees, the game isn't the same.
If the league you play in adopts the Respect programme, you will be asked to read, agree to, and sign, a Code of Conduct at your club. This will be your 'promise' to abide by a set of rules governing your behaviour as a player. Working together with your coach, your captain, and each referee that takes charge of your games during the season, you can play a major role in improving the game for everyone, through Respect
Respect Code of Conduct
When playing football, I will:
• Always play to the best of my ability and for the benefit of my team
• Play fairly – I won’t cheat, dive, complain or waste time
• Respect my team-mates, the other team, the referee or my coach/manager.
• Play by the rules, as directed by the referee
• Be gracious in victory and defeat – I will shake hands with the other team and referee before or at the end of the game
• Listen and respond to what my coach/team manager tells me
• Understand that a coach has to do what is best for the team and not one individual player
• Talk to someone I trust or the club welfare officer if I’m unhappy about anything at my club.
