Discipline

Every member of the club has signed up to one or more codes of conduct and is expected to maintain a high standard of behaviour. However codes of conduct can only be effective if there is a disciplinary process to support them. It is essential that the club is seen to be fair and consistent in dealing with misconduct.

The club committee will appoint a disciplinary committee to deal with serious breaches of codes of conduct as and when they arise. The disciplinary committee will have a number of options available to it depending on the serious of the actual case it is considering.

Possible sanctions include:

  • Verbal warning
  • Written warning
  • Exclusion from specified number of matches
  • Exclusion from team for the remainder of the season
  • Refusal to register with team for future season
  • Exclusion from membership of the club

The Club aims to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for players to develop their football skills. To enable this to happen the Club expects that all players and parents conduct themselves in a sensible and respectful manner towards club officials, their team, other club officials and players, referees and league officials at all times.

Players (their parents/guardian/carer) are responsible for the payment of any yellow or red cards received during a game. This must be paid to the Club within 14 days of the offence.
