If we behave positively during practice and matches, our children will too.

By setting a good example, we’ll help build a supportive environment in which everyone can enjoy themselves.

KENT ELITE SCOUTING ACADEMY is supporting The FA’s Respect programme to ensure football can be enjoyed by everyone in a safe and positive environment.

  • Have fun! It’s what we’re all here for!

  • Celebrate effort and good play from both sides

  • Always respect the referee and coaches and encourage players to do the same

  • Stay behind the touchline and within the designated spectator’s area (where provided)

  • When players make mistakes, offer them encouragement to try again next time

  • Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour

  • Always respect the match officials’ decisions

  • Never criticise a player for making a mistake -mistakes are part of learning I understand that

    breaches of the code may result in action being taken by my County FA and /or The FA In addition, when attending youth games, I will:

  • Let the coaches do their job and not confuse the players by telling them what to do

  • Encourage the players to respect the opposition and match officials

    I understand that if I do not follow the code, I may be:

  • Issued with a verbal warning or asked to leave

  • Required to meet with the club committee, league or CFA Welfare Officer

  • Obliges to undertake an FA Education course

  • Requested not to attend future games, be suspended or have any membership removed

    We only do positive.
