Code of Conduct - Junior Players

We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game. As a player, you have a big part to play. That's why Football Federation Australia is asking every player to follow a Respect Code of

When playing football, I will:

  • Always play to the best of my ability;
  • Play fairly - I won't cheat, 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;
  • Shake hands with the other team and referee at the end of the game;
  • Listen and respond to what my coach/team manager tells me;
  • Talk to someone I trust or the club member protection officer if I'm unhappy about anything at my club;

I understand that if I do not follow the Code, any/all of the following actions may be taken by my club or competition administrator. I may:

  • Be required to apologise to my team-mates, the other team and the referee;
  • Receive a formal warning from the coach or the club committee;
  • Be dropped or substituted;
  • Be suspended from training;
  • Be required to leave the club.

In addition:

  • My club or competition administrator may make my parent or carer aware of any infringements of the Code of Conduct;
  • The competition administrator could impose a fine, suspension or loss of competition points against my team or club.
