MFC has a code of conduct that covers behaviour of players, coaches, parents and match officials (referees). Please note that parents are responsible for their own conduct and that of their child up to the age of 18.
The code also applies to communications with club officials, as well as behaviour at the matches and training. Breaches of the code should be dealt with as follows:
- Report the breach to the VP of the division
- The leadership team will consider the report and, depending on the nature of the breach, will either just note it in its minutes or draft a formal warning letter
- A repeated breach after a warning letter has been issued will result in a formal meeting with MFC officials and possible suspension or expulsion from the club
In addition, racial vilification is unlawful and can have further consequences – see this circular from Football NSW.
