The SBMSC Code of Conduct describes what children can expect from adults at our football matches
Children can expect adults not to :
Attempt to “coach” or “manipulate” the players while they are playing
Shout, swear, become violent or use sarcasm
Ignore Children who need help
Attempt to “referee” the game by appealing for freekicks, offsides etc.
Assess players by their incompetence
Abuse or argue with the referee or linesman
But children can expect adults to:
Praise effort and performance more than results
Look for aspects to praise in players who might not otherwise get attention
Give them clear examples of excellent behaviour
Assess players with regard to their skills and attitudes
Praise good behaviour quickly to show adults value it
Help, encourage and support
REMEMBER: Children do not mean to make mistakes
Thousands of boys and girls from nearly 250 teams play friendly football fixtures in age groups Under 7 to Under 12.
