EB Lions AFC

We are incredibly proud of our 2 Star FA Accredited 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
  • 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

We are also very proud to be part of the Kick It Out campaign, and to be recognised as an Equality Charter Club.  #kickitout
