FCV requires all players, coaches, officials, parents and spectators to abide by a Code of Conduct that embodies basic common sense principles, demonstrates consideration of others, and projects a positive image to our young men and women.
Individuals and/or teams participating in FCV events that fail to abide by this code will be subject to ejection and disqualification from future FCV events and programs. The club and its coaches have the right to dismiss or suspend a player at anytime if it is deemed for the safety or reputation of the club. Thank you for your help in promoting these principles.
The Code of Conduct
Players, coaches, spectators and parents are to conduct themselves in a manner that honours the game and demonstrates respect to other players, coaches, officials and spectators. In becoming a member of the futsal/soccer community an individual assumes obligations and responsibilities to the game of futsal and its participants. The essential elements in this Code of Conduct are HONESTY, INTEGRITY and
RESPECT. Those who conduct themselves in a manner that reflects these elements will bring credit to the sport of futsal, themselves, their team and their organization. It is only through such conduct that our sport can earn and maintain a positive image and make its full contribution to youth sports in Canada and around the world. FCV supports the following behaviours for those participating or involved in any
way with FCV and youth futsal in general:
- The essential elements of the Code of Conduct must be adhered to. Sportsmanship and teaching the concepts of fair play are essential to the game, and must be taught and developed both at home and on the field during practices and games.
- The emphasis on winning should never be placed above the value of good sportsmanship, the concepts of fair play, or the skills of the game.
- Derogatory comments are unacceptable. Use positive reinforcement with players and adults alike. It should be remembered that criticism, once made, can never be retracted.
- The safety and welfare of the players are of primary importance. Coaches must always be aware of the tremendous influence they have on their players. They must strive to be positive role models in dealing with young people, as well as with adults. Officials are expected to conduct themselves as professionals and in a manner that demonstrates courtesy and fairness to all parties, while exercising their authority on the field.
- Adults involved with the game must never permit anyone to openly or maliciously criticize badger, harass, or threaten an official.
- Knowledge of the rules of futsal/soccer must be respected and adhered to by all who participate in the game of futsal/soccer, both in the letter and the spirit of the game.
- Attempts to manipulate rules in an effort to take unfair advantage of an opponent, or to teach deliberate unsportsmanlike conduct, is unacceptable.
- Eligibility requirements, such as age and previous level of participation, must be followed. They have been established to encourage and maximize participation, as well as promote safety.
- Full participation and good attendance are key to the responsibility you show to the program and to the team. Respect for the game and your teammates is critical.
Poor sportsmanship and lack of excused absence from practice and games will carry the following consequences depending on the severity of the offence:
- First offense of poor sportsmanship is a verbal warning or suspension.
- Second offense of poor sportsmanship is dismissal from the game or practice or suspension.
- Third offense of poor sportsmanship is dismissal from the next game or practice or suspension.
- Fourth offense of poor sportsmanship is dismissal from the team.
- Attendance is an important part of being within an FCV group. We ask that all players communicate with the coaches with regards to attendance. Players are expecting to inform coaches if they will be absent and understand that lack of communication may result in altered playing time during games.
- Players that do not attend practices routinely due to influences from other sports obligations must discuss with head coach prior to start of season. FCV coaches, players and community want to see committed futsal players in our program.
