SEASON 2014/2015

KicKStart OPERATE ZERO TOLERENCE ON RESPECT ISSUES

RESPECT PROGRAMME

 

Please could you make everyone aware within your club, the importance of the respect programme.

 

Please ensure all spectators are gathered behind the respect areas and that the club officials are positioned on the opposite side of the pitch in their own technical areas, this will enable the team managers to carry out their roles without interruption from the spectators and hopefully the spectators will enjoy the game in the spirit that the great game should be.

 

The Respect Programme is The Football Association’s direct response to a clear message from the grassroots game which was:

 

We must improve standards of behaviour - on and off the field.

 

Nottinghamshire FA’s official launch of the programme was in February

2009 which most local Youth and Senior League’s opted to join including KicKStart.

 

Behaviour is the biggest concern, both abuse and intimidation towards

Referees, and behaviour by over-competitive Managers and Parents and aggressive Spectators on the touchlines.

 

For Clubs, the Respect programme includes four practical steps to improve behaviour.

 

• Respect Codes of Conduct: There is a Code of Conduct for each of the five main types of football participant;

Young Players, Adult Players, Spectators and Parents/Carers, Coaches, Team Managers, Club Officials and Match Officials.

Within the Code Managers are asked to remember that they are dealing with children, not adults and to RESPECT THEM AT ALL TIMES;

 

• Designated Spectator Areas: All Spectators, Parents and Carers must remain behind the (ropes, cones or a line marked on the ground) at all times to help support teams in a more responsible manner;

 

• Captain Taking Responsibility: Captains are encouraged to take full responsibility for their players’ actions and behaviour. Both teams are required to line up before the game to shake hands, and offer handshakes to the opposing team after the game as a mark of Respect;

 

• Referee Managing the Game: Referee’s are encouraged to enhance their match management skills to create an environment when potential problems are addressed before they escalate.

 

Managers must be respectful to Referee’s at all times, and set an example to their players, everyone is here to progress and improve in their respective role on the field so please be aware that some of our referee’s are young. Write a report rather than use abuse.

 

Please be aware that the League’s Management Committee has the right to instruct Clubs to remove any person(s) from touchlines not complying with the Respect Codes of Conduct.
