United in the Community
Player's Code of Conduct
- Play by the rules – the rules of the Academy and the laws of the game.
- Never argue with a referee or other official.
- Control your temper - verbal abuse of officials and abusing other players doesn’t help you enjoy or win any games.
- Be a team player – It’s a team game, treat it that way.
- Treat all players as you would like to be treated – fairly.
- Co-operate with your coach, the referees and team-mates.
- Play for your own enjoyment and to improve your skills.
- Don’t use ugly remarks based on race, religion, gender or ability – you’ll let down your coach, team-mates and family if you do – and many such comments are actually now illegal.
- Respect the Academy’s property i.e. kit, training facilities, dressing rooms.
- Respect the Academy’s officials and fellow players.
- Respect the decisions of the match officials. They should make an effort to study the laws of the game.
