Melville City FC Code of Fair Play

February 23, 2014 By: Penny Category: Club Noticeboard, Competitions

The following rules of fair play have been developed, and are followed by all Melville City FC players, parents, coaches and spectators.

Coaches

  • Remember that young players participate in sport for pleasure and winning is only PART of their fun.
  • Never ridicule or yell at a young player for making a mistake or for not winning.
  • Be reasonable in your demands on players’ time, energy and enthusiasm.
  • Operate within the rules and spirit of soccer and teach your players to do the same.
  • Any physical contact with a young player should be appropriate to the situation and necessary for their development.
  • Ensure that the time players spend with you is a positive experience. All young players are deserving of equal attention and opportunities.
  • Avoid overplaying talented players. All players deserve equal playing and training time, regardless of their ability.
  • Ensure that equipment and facilities meet safety standards and are appropriate to the age, maturity and ability of all players.
  • Display control, respect and professionalism to all others involved with soccer. This includes, but is not limited to, opponents, coaches, officials, administrators, the media, parents and spectators.
  • Encourage your players to do the same.
  • Show concern and caution toward sick and injured players. Follow the advice of a physician when determining whether an injured player is ready to recommence training or competition.
  • Obtain appropriate qualifications and keep up to date with the latest coaching practices and the principles of growth and development of young players.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

Players

  • Play by the rules.
  • Junior players should never argue with referees. If you disagree with a decision, have your captain, coach or manager approach the official on your behalf.
  • Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials and sledging of other players, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable or permitted behaviour in soccer.
  • Work equally hard for yourself and your team. Your team’s performance will benefit and so will you.
  • Be a good sport; applaud all good plays whether they are made by your team or the opposition.
  • Treat all participants in soccer as you would like to be treated. Without them there would be no game.
  • Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please your parents and coaches.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all soccer participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

Parents

  • Remember that young people participate in soccer for their enjoyment and benefit, not yours.
  • Encourage children to participate, do not force them to.
  • Focus on your child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing.
  • Never ridicule or scold a player for making a mistake. Positive comments help motivate young players.
  • Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances and skilful plays by all participants.
  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from all soccer activities.
  • Respect the decisions of officials and teach children to do likewise.
  • Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials and administrators. Without them, your child could not participate in football.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

Spectators

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

Glory girls surprise young Angels

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

Around 30 young girls from Perth’s south-east enjoyed a soccer skills clinic led by Beckenham Angels and inaugural Perth Glory Women player Dani Calautti – and received a surprise visit and talk by three current Glory players including Matildas co-captain Kate Gill.


The 90-minute clinic at Mills Park covered dribbling, shooting, tackling and beating opposition players in a series of exciting drills. Calautti will coach Beckenham’s U13 girls team and 2011 Football West women’s golden boot winner Andrea Preiato will coach Beckenham’s U15 girls team.

Both coaches were delighted by the enthusiasm and skill which the young players showed – as were Glory stars Gill, Chantel Jones and Rosie Sutton.

Gill explained to the girls that if they had the skills and worked hard enough, then there was a chance for them to travel overseas and play in the growing numbers of professional leagues – as well as playing for Australia.

2013 Football West women’s cup winners Beckenham Angels are building for the future by fielding teams in the Perth metropolitan U13 and U15 junior divisions this season. In addition, the club is fielding a Division 1 metropolitan women’s team to develop top young players, including those in the 15 to 18-year-old age group.

This week Beckenham Angels midfielder and Glory player Shannon May received the Perth Glory Women’s ‘Player’s Player’ award for the 2013/14 Westfield W-League season, along with finishing runner-up in their ‘Most Glorious Player’ award.

For inquiries about playing U13 and U15 girls soccer at Beckenham Angels this season, contact Dani Calautti on 0439 909 937.
