Parent Code of Conduct

Youth soccer is for the players. The role that parents play in the life of a soccer player has a tremendous impact on their experience. You have entrusted the care of your player to these coaches and they need to be free to do their job. If a player has too many coaches, it is confusing for them, and disruptive to the strategy our coaches have thoughtfully put together for each game. All parents associated with the Brighton Football Club (BFC) are invited and encouraged to watch and cheer their children as they participate in the sport, so long as their behavior does not distract the players and officials from the free flow of play, the trademark of the sport. BFC prides itself on having respectful and engaged families, and we ask that parents and guardians continue to adhere to these guidelines. 

A parent or guardian should:

• Foster an environment of respect for referees, players, coaches, and spectators of the opposing team through words of encouragement and support.

• Applaud superior play, effort, and sportsmanship by players on both sides.

• Support your coaches and managers consistently regardless of the results on the field. Coaches contribute many hours of their time to your children. They deserve congratulations when the team wins and your encouragement when the team doesn’t.

• Communicate any concerns to the coach at the appropriate time (recommended 24-hour cool off period) away from the playing location and players.

• Always remain at least two yards from the playing field so our young players have room to play and enjoy the game.

Your cooperation with these standards before, during, and after each game or practice will make the BFC experience more enjoyable for everyone.

A parent or guardian must:

• Never use foul language or obscene gestures at a game or practice site.

• Refrain from making recommendations, coaching, and game strategy suggestions to their child and/or players and coaches during any point of a game and/or practice.

• Avoid comments and gestures that express disagreement with referee decisions.

• Cooperate with any request by the game officials.

• Never consume alcoholic beverages on the field location at practices or games.

A parent or guardian understands that:

• Any parent or spectator who fails to adhere to these standards will be required to leave the playing area, and play will be suspended until he or she does so.

• BFC reserves the right to suspend or terminate a player’s enrollment for their parent’s persistent or extreme sideline behaviors, and there will be no refunds of player fees in such case.

• Parents or guardians are responsible for their guests’ behavior and must inform their guests of the applicable rules of conduct.

Any breaches of this Code of Conduct can result in your child’s suspension and a member’s removal from the Brighton Football Club. Comments and behavior of any member which contradicts the mission statement or disrupts the functioning of a team can result in the suspension and/or removal from the Brighton Football Club
