Parent and Carer Guidance
Making sure children and young people have a safe and enjoyable football experience.
Everyone involved in football should promote the highest-possible standards of behaviour, so we can pass our great game on in good shape to future generations.
This applies as much to parents/carers as anyone else. No doubt we’ve all heard – and perhaps seen – over-zealous parents behaving badly at children’s matches. Sometimes unwittingly, they can create a climate of intimidation that stops children wanting to play.
Ensuring parents/carers behave appropriately at youth team matches is codified into ‘Respect’, an ongoing FA drive to improve everyone’s standards of behaviour. You'll find more information about 'Respect' via the link below.
