Code of Conduct for Parents/Guardians

Parents have a great influence on kid’s enjoyment and success in football. All kids play football because they enjoy the game – it’s fun. However good a footballer a child becomes within our club, it is important to reinforce the message that…

positive encouragement from parents/guardians will contribute to:

  • Children enjoying football
  • A sense of personal achievement
  • Self-esteem
  • Improving the child’s skills and techniques


A parent’s expectations and attitudes have a significant bearing on the child’s attitude towards:

  • Other players
  • Officials
  • Managers
  • Spectators


Parents/Guardians must:

  • Applaud all good play – oppositions’ as well as Loanhead’s
  • Avoid coaching the child during the game
  • Not shout and scream
  • Respect the Referee’s/coach’s decision
  • Give attention to each of the children involved in football, not just the most talented
  • Give encouragement to everyone to participate in football


Parents/Guardians must agree and adhere to the Loanhead Miners YFC Child Protection Policy as followed by all coaches.
