FFV Parents Code of Behaviour
Below is the outlined FFV Parents Code of Behaviour. We ask that all parents read and adhere to the below Code. If you have any questions or queries please feel free to approach or contact a member of our friendly staff. We encourage these questions to help foster an even better and fun environment for everyone involved. We love passion at South Yarra and never discourage it. The below guidlines provide a fantastic framework for us all to work and play within to ensure this fun environment continues.
(a) Remember that children play the sport for their enjoyment, and not yours;
(b) Encourage all children to participate, do not force them;
(c) Focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than the result of the activity (that is, winning or losing);
(d) Encourage children to always participate according to the rules;
(e) Never ridicule, yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a game;
(f) Remember that children learn best by example, so applaud good play by both teams;
(g) Support all efforts to remove racial and religious vilification, verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities;
(h) Respect the match official’s decisions and teach your child to do likewise;
(i) Show respect and appreciation to Club officials, including coaches, officials and administrators. Ensure any issues are raised through the correct channels;
(j) Do not smoke or consume alcohol near the team bench (Technical Area) or sideline.
