Codes of conduct
The coach-educator has a great influence over young players involved in grassroots football. From the very fact that coach-educators spend a lot of time with the children, their own conduct and behaviour will inevitably affect the attitudes and conduct of the children. For this reason the coach-educator must always maintain a positive manner and display an exemplary attitude to all participants, both in physical respects as well as in social and emotional relationships.
The coach-educator must not just be perceived as a football expert or organiser, but also as a guide, educator and example to be followed.
