Player Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct – Players

When playing football with and for BeDiscovered Football Academy, I will:

  • Always play to the best of my ability and work as hard as I can.
  • Always bring protective equipment to matches and training. (i.e. Shin pads, glasses etc.)
  • Play fairly – I won’t cheat, lie, complain or waste time.
  • Respect my team-mates, the other team, the referee or my coach/manager.
  • Play by the rules set by the coaching staff.
  • Listen and respond to what my coach/team manager tells me.
  • Talk to someone I trust or the Academy Directors if I’m unhappy about anything at the Academy.
  • Treat BDFA property and equipment with respect and care at all times.
  • Never engage in or tolerate any form of bullying.

Disciplinary actions

We may have to take disciplinary action against players who repeatedly or intentionally fail to follow our code of conduct. Disciplinary actions will vary depending on the issue.

Possible consequences include:

  • Pardon from an entire training session.
  • Pardon from an upcoming fixture.
  • Temporary suspension.
  • Permanent suspension for the most serious offences.
