We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game. I understand that if I do not follow the Code, any/all of the following actions may be taken by my club,
County FA, league or the FA.
In The FA’s survey of over 37,000 grassroots participants, behaviour was the biggest 
concern in the game. This included the abuse of match officials and the unacceptable I may be:
behaviour of over-competitive parents, spectators and coaches on the sideline.
_ Required to meet with the club, league or County Welfare Officer.
Play your part and observe the Football Association's Respect Code of Conduct
in everything you do. _ Required to meet with the club committee.
On and off the field, I will: _ Monitored by another club coach
