We Only Do Positive
CREATE A FUN, SAFE AND INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENT
Watch how the difference between positive and negative coaching can have on massive impact on our players, the environment and the game.
Creating the right environments for our players, both on and off the pitch is so important. Even though your role could be slightly different from someone else within your club or league, it’s important that we all play our part in creating a fun, safe and inclusive environment.
The Respect codes of conduct are in place to ensure that everyone involved within an FA Charter Standard club or league is playing their part to give the players a positive experience.
We have individual Respect codes of conduct for:
Coaches, Team Managers and Club Officials
Spectators and Parents/Carers
Please help us to create more positive environment for all to enjoy by downloading and promoting all the resources below.

Someone who promotes all the behaviours (for example fairness, integrity, inclusion and leadership). This could be someone within a club or league and is not a formal role. Why not have more than one!

Share your message and a picture. Please note, if you are taking pictures of children and using for social media, consent will need to be given by the child’s parent/guardian/carer.
Everyone is responsible and should play their part in creating safe, fun and inclusive environments. No matter what your role is, let’s work together to unite the game.
