Code of Conduct

Club Toronto (FCT) 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 Futsal Club Toronto events that fail to abide by
this code will be subject to ejection and disqualification from future FCT events. The
club and its officers 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/soccer and its participants. The
essential elements in this Code of Conduct are HONESTY, INTEGRITY and
PROFESSIONALISM. Those who conduct themselves in a manner that reflects these
elements will bring credit to the sport of futsal/soccer, 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. FCT supports the following behaviours for those participating or involved in any
way with FCT and youth futsal/soccer 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:

1. First offense of poor sportsmanship is a verbal warning or suspension.

2. Second offense of poor sportsmanship is dismissal from the game or practice or
suspension.

3. Third offense of poor sportsmanship is dismissal from the next game or practice or
suspension.

4. Fourth offense of poor sportsmanship is dismissal from the team.

5. Missing practice without prior agreement from the head coach will result in no
participation in next game.

6. Continued missing practice without prior agreement from head coach will result in
expulsion from the team.

7. Players that do not attend practices routinely due to influences from other sports
obligations must discuss with head coach prior to start of season. FCT coaches,
players and community want to see committed futsal players in our program.
