Respect the rights, dignity and worth of each and every person and treat each equally within the context of the sport.
Place the wellbeing and safety of each player above all other considerations, including the development of performance.
Adhere to all guidelines laid down by the rules of the Scottish Football Association.
Develop an appropriate working relationship with each player based on mutual trust and respect.
Not exert undue influence to obtain personal benefit or reward.
Encourage and guide players to accept responsibility for their own behaviour and performance.
Ensure that the activities they direct or advocate are appropriate for the age, maturity, experience and ability of the players.
At the outset, clarify with the players (and, where appropriate, with their parents), exactly what is expected of them and also what they are entitled to expect from their coach.
Always promote the positive aspects of the sport, e.g. fair play, and never condone violations of the Laws of the Game, behaviour contrary to the spirit of the Laws of the Game, or relevant rules and regulations or the use of prohibited substances or techniques.
Consistently display high standards of behaviour and appearance.
Any breach of any provision(s) of this Code of Conduct by a coach shall constitute a breach of the rules of the Scottish Football Association and shall be dealt with under the procedures set out in the rules of the Scottish Football Association.
Play according to the rules and never argue with the coach. They are there to help and they can make mistakes, just like you.
Always train to the best of your ability and encourage others to do the same.
Don’t lose your temper or get upset. Rudeness, bad temper and sulking spoils everyone’s fun. If you have a problem, tell your coach.
Respect your fellow players.
Don’t forget your water bottle!
Wear the right sort of shoes and clothing for all sessions
I understand that if I behave in a way which endangers others, disrespect coaches, or act in a manner to cause constant disruption to sessions then I will be subject to discipline. This could lead to you:
Receiving a warning by letter to parents
Having your parent accompany you to training and stay for the duration;
Not being allowed to train with Caledonia Sports Coaching;
Being removed from training with Caledonia Sports Coaching for a set period, due to consistently bad behaviour (usually after three warnings) with no refund of payment
A player who causes deliberate harm to other attendees at a session will be removed from the session immediately
Sessions need to be fun for everyone.
