PARENT/GUARDIAN CODE OF CONDUCT

 

Bathgate Thistle Community Football Club is fully committed to educating not only our players but also any parents, guardians and spectators of the conduct expected of them during all activities related to the club. We also ask that each parent or guardian read, understand, sign and commit to the code of conduct. Parents guardians and spectators should also remember that they have a duty while representing their children while attending an event in connection to Bathgate Thistle Community Football Club and during any events are asked to behave in a manner which will not bring the club into disrepute. 

The following Codes of Conduct have been devised, based on the concept of fair play, and are defined as:

 

1. Respect for the rules

 

2. Respect for the referees and their decisions

 

3. Respect for all participants, including team-mates, coaches and opponents

 

4. Equal participation (where applicable)

 

5. Maintaining self-control at all times

Parents/Guardians & Spectator Conduct:

 

  • Parents to stand behind barrier/marked area opposite to the coaches

  • Be Patient and supportive with young/youth players

  • Emphasise good behaviour at all times

  • Highlight good play from both teams
