Club Rules and Codes of Conduct

Important message to ALL players, parents, carers and spectators (CONDUCT)


All players, parents, carers and spectators MUST comply with the FA rules, regulations and SBJFC codes of conduct at all times. Please remember that the managers, coaches, referees, linespersons and SBJFC support teams (SBJFC officials) are all voluntary and SBJFC will not tolerate any acts of abuse, aggression, interference or threats towards them or any player.

The detailed codes of conduct can be found below but in summary all parents, carers and spectators are expected to:


- act in a supportive manner at all times

- respect the coaches and managers decisions

- applaud the players (of both teams) efforts even if mistakes are made

- never under any circumstances confront any SBJFC official or those of the opponents

- let the coach or manager manage the team

- not to tell the players what to do during games – this causes confusion

- offer support and act as linespersons, match delegates or referees


Please note that your team and SBJFC can receive fines from the FA if these codes of conduct are not met.
