    Team Support/Assistance
    As a volunteer-run community organisation, we need every member to contribute in some way to the running of the club. The activities that parents / carers are expected to contribute to include:

    • Running the tuck shop (opening up pavilion, serving teas/snacks, cleaning and packing away)
    • Pitch setup and put-away (goals, barriers etc.)
    • Acting as Assistant Referee (line duty)
    • Clearing pitch of leaves/other debris
    • End of season events support (setup, manning and clearing away)

    These activities will be arranged / requested by the relevant team coach / secretary.

    Inclusivity
    Coton Football Club strives to create an inclusive and competitive environment where children can learn and enjoy playing football. We are very proud of the work all of our coaches do to balance the needs of the players and the needs of the team.

    Junior teams at Coton Football Club play in three different leagues, all of which are under the umbrella of Cambridgeshire FA:

    • The Cambridgeshire Mini Soccer League (up to U11)
    • The Cambridge and District Colts League (U12 and above)
    • The S-Tech Girls League (all ages)

    Age groups up to U11 are officially non-competitive, with no results or league tables published. Age groups U12 and over are competitive. For matches in the Cambridgeshire Mini Soccer League all substitutes must play, and all players must play for a minimum of 15 minutes in each match. For the S-Tech Girls League and the Cambridge and District Colts League there is no requirement for all substitutes to play, and there is no minimum playing time for those who do play.

    Notwithstanding the above, coaches will endeavour to be inclusive and ensure that all players registered to play matches at the Club are given the opportunity to play. This does not mean equal playing-time for everybody and the amount of playing time for each player may differ according to the needs of the team. The aim is to strike a balance between team success on the one hand and inclusiveness on the other – which is our attempt to be fair to all of the players. Playing time is a decision for individual coaches who have the best understanding of the needs of their teams.

    Respect
    We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game. This club is supporting The FA’s Respect programme to ensure football can be enjoyed in a safe, positive environment. Play your part and observe The FA’s Respect Codes of Conduct at all times.
