Coaches Charter

As Coaches & Officials we endeavor to achieve the following for all Cumbernauld Colts FC players:

  1. We will respect the rights, dignity and worth of every player and treat everyone equally within the context of the football club. 
  2. We will place the well being and safety of the player above the development of performance.  We will follow all guidelines laid down by the sports governing body.
  3. We will develop an appropriate working relationship with players, especially young children, based on mutual trust and respect. We will not exert undue influence to obtain personal benefit or reward. 
  4. We will encourage and guide players to accept responsibility for their own behaviour.
  5. We will hold up to date nationally recognised governing body coaching qualifications.
  6. We will hold the required insurance cover
  7. We will ensure the activities we direct or advocate are appropriate for the age, maturity, experience and ability of the individual player.
  8. We will at the outset clarify with players, and their parents, exactly what is expected of them.  (See the ‘Players & Parents Charters’).
  9. We will co-operate fully with other specialists (e.g. other coaches, officials, sport scientists, doctors, and physiotherapists) in the best interest of the player.
  10. We will always promote the positive aspects of football (e.g. fair play).
  11. Never condone rule violations, rough play or the use of prohibited substances.
  12. We will consistently display high standards of behaviour and appearance.
  13. We will supply a minimum of 2 coaches/volunteers, preferably 3 for all training and matches, 1 of which will be a First Aider.
