The official Ripon City AFC app



Without volunteers there would be no Ripon City Football Club.

All of our officials, coaching staff and grounds people are made up of volunteers.

Ripon City AFC is always looking to expand its growing list of trained coaches and is committed to having all its coaches FA qualified.

We are also keen to expand our number of volunteers, so if you have time available and are interested in volunteering to help us please get in touch.

What does Ripon City AFC Expect of its Club officials and volunteers?

Ripon City AFC values its officials and volunteers tremendously. In fact it could not function without them! However Ripon City AFC expects a high standard from everyone representing the Club in whatever capacity. All club volunteers must implement the good ethical conduct and practices summarised below:

Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all adults and children.
Consider the well-being and safety of players before the development of performance.

Develop an appropriate working relationship with players based on mutual trust and respect.

Make sure all training, development and playing activities are appropriate to the age, ability and experience of those taking part.

Promote the positive aspects of football(e.g. fair play, sportsmanship, gentlemanly conduct).

Balance the desire to win against the concept of equality in team selection.

Follow all guidelines laid down by the Football Association and Ripon City AFC at all times.

Hold appropriate and current qualifications, CRB disclosure and insurance cover.

Never exert undue influence over players to obtain personal benefit or reward.

Never condone regulation or law violations, rough play, bad sportsmanship or the use of prohibited substances.

Give positive encouragement.

If criticism is appropriate, let it be constructive and friendly criticism only.

Display consistently high standards of personal behaviour and appearance.
Be aware of the needs, customs and cultural requirements of players from different racial or religious backgrounds.
