1st Touch Football seeks to create an environment which encourages and reinforces good behaviour.
We aim to:
• Define acceptable standards of behaviour;
• Encourage consistency of response to both positive and negative behaviour;
• Promote self-esteem, self-discipline and positive relationships;
• Ensure that our expectations and strategies are widely known and understood.
STANDARDS OF BEHAVIOUR
In seeking to define acceptable standards of behaviour it is acknowledged that these are goals to be worked towards rather than expectations which are either fulfilled or not. Just as we measure sports achievement in terms of progress and development over time towards improvement, so we measure standards of behaviour in terms of the children’s developing ability to conform to our behavioural goals. The children bring to our sessions a wide variety of behaviour patterns based on differences in home values, attitudes and parenting skills. At 1st Touch Football we must work towards standards of behaviour based on the basic principles of honesty, respect, consideration and responsibility. It follows that acceptable standards of behaviour are those which reflect these principles.
