Sideline Behaviour and Safe Environments

A Message from the President

Hi Majura Football Family,

Unfortunately, we have had several incidences over the past few weeks of inappropriate and unacceptable sideline behaviour that are currently being dealt with by the Majura FC committee.

I am writing to remind everyone that Majura is committed to providing a safe environment for our Football Community – our players, parents, officials, coaches, and referees. Aggressive, threatening or other inappropriate behaviour by members, their families and friends, and other sporting personnel while attending a game or any club event will not be tolerated.

These behaviours are outlined in our Codes of Conduct and specifically include:

  • using bad language,
  • harassing or ridiculing players, coaches, officials or other spectators,
  • making racist, religious, sexist or other inappropriate comments to players, coaches, officials or other spectators, or
  • any threatening behaviour or physical altercation between spectators and players, coaches, officials or other spectators.

Safety is paramount at our club and while the committee is working to ensure a safe environment, we request your support and assistance by doing the following:

  • Help create a positive and respectful atmosphere for players, officials and other spectators by showing respect for players, officials and other spectators.
  • Abide by our club’s Codes of Conduct and refrain from using bad language, harassing or ridiculing others or behaving in a threatening or violent manner.
  • If you are aware of inappropriate spectator behaviour and you feel confident to do so, speak with the person and ask them to stop. If there is a club vested official or committee member present, ask for their assistance.
  • Report any inappropriate spectator behaviour to committee members who are at the clubhouse and on the grounds every game day.
  • Call the police or a club vested official if you are concerned for your safety or the safety of others.

The game we love is passionate and exciting and whilst this note isn’t intended to dampen our expression, is it a note to ensure that we role model respectful and positive behaviour for everyone in our Football Community.

Yours in football,
Iain Slatter
President, Majura FC
