Respect is The Football Association’s direct response to a clear message from the grassroots game: We must improve standards of behavior – on and off the field.’

Respect within The Football Association is aimed at helping us all to work together to change the negative attitudes and abusive behavior on the sidelines and on the pitch. It’s a long-term commitment, but if we all play our part, together we can really make a difference.

In 2011/12 the implementation of Respect in East Berks Youth Football League was defined in 5 practical  sections:

Respect Codes of Conduct

There is a Code of Conduct for each of the main types of football participant:

• Players

• Spectators and Parents/Carers

• Coaches, Team Managers and Club Officials

• Match Officials – Referees, Assistant referees, Fourth Officials and Substitute Referees.

Designated Spectators’ Area/Line

There will be a demarcated area along the touchlines, within which spectators must stay or remain behind. The idea is to encourage parents and spectators to take a step back from the pitch and support the teams in a more responsible manner.

Captain Taking Responsibility U14s-U18s

There will be a drive to enhance captaincy skills, encouraging captains to take full responsibility for their players’ actions and behaviour. Referee managing the game  and there will be a similar drive to enhance referees’ match management skills to create an environment where potential problems are addressed before they escalate.

Support Referees

Respect aims to support referees to uphold the Laws of the Game.

Breaches of Spectators’ area/line will be reported to the Managers – Serious breaches shall be reported to the League and will be reviewed by the EBYFL Regulation and Rules Sub-Committee.

Respect ‘Before Kick Off’

Before the commencement of the match the following procedures must be followed:

a)   Home Team prepares pitch is prepared with Nets, Flag, Spectator area/line.

b)  Home team to welcome Away team via Manager/Captain (U14s - U18s) visiting opposing team.

c)     Referee inspects the pitch for safety and compliance.
