EB Lions AFC

We are incredibly proud of our FA Standard
Charter Development Club status.

As coaches, parents and guardians, we all have a responsibility to promote high standards and uphold the ethos of the FA RESPECT campaign:

• Players are number one
• Fun – not winning – is everything
• Fans only cheer and coaches only coach
• No yelling in anger
• Respect the officials and referees decisions
• No swearing – whatever the opposition are like

We have a shared responsibility to ensure that for all
players their experience is a positive one,
particularly at the youngest age groups.

We have a commitment to coaching, player and coach development, and the raising of standards of skill and also behaviour in the game – all of which are
big priorities for both us and The FA.

Our aims as a Club and as Coaches are to:

  • Place the well-being, safety and enjoyment of
    each player above everything, including winning
  • Explain exactly what we expect of our players
    and what they can expect from us, consistently
  • Ensure the parents/carers of all the players
    under the age of 18 understand these
    expectations
  • Develop mutual trust and respect with every
    player to build their self-esteem
  • Encourage each player to accept responsibility
    for their own behaviour and performance
  • Ensure all activities are appropriate for the
    players’ ability level, experience, age and maturity
