RESPECT & SAFEGUARDING

RESPECT
Playing football in a safe and supportive space starts with us. The FA Respect Codes of Conduct are in place for us at IGF FC to create a safe and inclusive environment for our players to learn and play football. We expect high standards of behaviour from all involved with the Club, please remember you are not only representing us as a Club but also yourselves and your families.
 
Individual Codes of Conduct can be found below. Please share links with your players and teams and urge them to read them before the season starts. These Codes of Conduct will also have been re-iterated in your player contracts signed at the team induction day. These are also below for your reference.
