a) Outline expectations b) Ensure safety and fairness c) Reduce conflict d) Ensure high standards of discipline
It is a form of contract with expectations and responsibilities for all those involved and should be read in conjunction with the Academy's child protection document. We aim to create a positive professional environment that will allow each player to fulfil his/her potential as a goalkeeper and develop into a responsible adult.
