The SLFA is committed to encouraging parents to support their child’s progress in the game of football. Parents often assume the role of motivator, facilitator, even coach in the life of a young athlete. In these roles parents can provide financial, emotional, and physical support.

  • Encourage your child to play by the laws of the game.
  • Avoid pressurising players about winning or losing.
  • Support and encourage all players, including the opposition.
  • Never publicly criticise your child or other players.
  • Do not question decisions made by the match officials.
