Safeguarding Children Policy

Code of Conduct for Managers, Parents and Players 2019/20

Anti-Bullying Policy











































Players are the most important people in the sport.  Playing for the team and for the team to win is the most fundamental part of the game.  But not winning at any cost – Fair Play and Respect for ALL others in the game are fundamentally important at Stoneleigh Athletic FC which fully supports and promotes this ethos.


These key concepts are valid for players at all levels and age groups


  • Play for the “fun of it” not just to please your parents or coach or anyone else
  • Play by the rules of fair play and the Laws of the Game.  Learn these and you will be a much better football player
  • Accept success and failure, victory and defeat equally
  • Give maximum effort and strive for the best possible performance during a game
  • Set a positive example for others
  • Avoid all forms of poor gamesmanship and time-wasting
  • Show due respect towards and never argue with the referee or lineman’s decisions
  • Accept the decision of the match official without protest
  • Abide by the instructions of the manager and team officials, provided they do not contradict the spirit of this code
  • Show due respect towards the team officials of the opposition
  • Control your temper and use your energies for playing better football
  • Do not use inappropriate language or make rude gestures and avoid words or actions which may mislead a match or opposing team official
  • Play well for yourself and your team, your teams performance will benefit and so will your own
  • Make every effort to develop your own sporting abilities in terms of skill, technique, tactics and stamina
  • Be a good sport. Recognise all good play, whether by your team or by your opponents team and always shake opponents hands at the end of a game
  • Treat all players, as you yourself would like to be treated.  Do not interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of any player
  • Treat opponents with due respect at all times, irrespective of the result of the game
  • Safeguard the physical fitness of opponents, avoid violent and rough play and help injured opponents
  • Remember that the aims of the game are to have fun, improve your skills and feel good.  Do not be a show off
  • Co-operate with your manager, team mates and opponents for without them you will not have a game
  • Players should make every effort to attend club training sessions
  • Players should respect and look after all training and playing areas at all times
  • Players are expected to follow the guidelines and rules as laid down in the Clubs constitutions and Code of Conduct
  • Players are to accept responsibility for their own conduct and behaviour during games and training
