“The SFA values the role of sport and its contribution to overall human development by providing good quality footballing opportunities in a safe and positive environment.
“The SFA promote personal, professional, and social well-being through footballing experiences, regardless of an individual’s socio-economic status, age, gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, disability, or sexual orientation. The SFA Codes of Conduct set minimum standards of best practice for all clubs, coaches, players, parents/carers and volunteers involved in football in Scotland. We must all aim to improve standards and protect the welfare and well being of everyone involved in football, in particular young footballers and those who are vulnerable. We must all strive to embody values, virtues and standards of excellence appropriate to the club setting.
“Ultimately, we must actively pursue our goals, realising the importance of our own, and our fellow participant’s commitment to uphold ethical duties and social responsibilities to others.”
