We want everyone attending FC Helsinki 2020 activities to have a fun and safe experience and so we have created a Code of Conduct for all participants.

Whilst taking part in our activities, we would like young people to:


The essentials

  • Keep themselves safe by listening to their coach or tutor, behaving responsibly and speak out when something isn’t right.

  • When with us, stay in the places where they are supposed to, not wander off or leave without telling a member of staff.

  • Take care of our equipment and premises as if they were their own.

  • Bring the correct kit to sessions and wear clothing appropriate for the weather.


  • Represent and celebrate difference in our activities and do not discriminate against anyone on the grounds of ability, gender, race or sexual orientation.

  • Report any incidents of bullying, including homophobia and transphobia to a member of staff, even if they are just a witness.

  • Treat other young people with respect and appreciate that everyone has different levels of skill and talent.

  • Help make our activities a welcome and friendly place to be.

  • Support and encourage their team mates. Tell them when they’ve done well and be there for them when they are struggling.

  • Respect our staff.

  • Be a good sport, celebrate when we win and be gracious when we lose.

  • Play by the rules and have fun.

  • Apply our behaviour principles when online.

Whilst participating in our activities, we understand young people have the right to:

  • Enjoy the time they spend with us and know that they are safe.

  • Be told who they can talk to if something isn’t right.

  • Be listened to.

  • Be respected by us and other team members and be treated fairly.

  • Feel welcomed, valued and not judged based on ability, race, gender or sexuality.

  • Be encouraged and develop skills with our help.

  • Be looked after and if there’s an accident, injury or incident and have their parents informed.

Behaviour management
We expect all young people to follow the behaviours and requests set out in this code. If any young person behaves in a way which contradicts any of the points set out above, we’ll address the problem straight away with parent’s involvement and aim to resolve the issue.

We will always work to support our participants, however, to ensure the safety, welfare and enjoyment for all, our coaches may issue timeouts, yellow cards and formal warnings. Continued or serious breaches of our code of conduct could lead to participants being suspended from our activities. If a serious incident occurs, we will always involve parents and wherever possible we’ll always try to keep everyone playing.
