Code of Conduct – Spectators

Glenmore Park Football Club aims to provide a non threatening, safe, open friendly environment for people to play football regardless of gender, age, race or socio-economic background.

To achieve this our spectators must behave in a suitable manner that includes the following:

  • Remember that young people participate in sport for their enjoyment, not yours.
  • Applaud good performances and efforts from all individuals and teams. Congratulate all participants on their performances regardless of the game’s outcome.
  • Respect the decisions of officials and teach young people to do the same.
  • Never ridicule or scold a young player for making a mistake. Positive comments are motivational.
  • Condemn the use of violence in any form, whether it is by spectators, coaches, officials or players.
  • Show respect for your teams opponents. Without them there would be no game.
  • Encourage players to follow the rules and official’s decisions.
  • Do not use foul language, sledge, or harass players, coaches or officials.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
