Code of conduct
– Focuses on general ethics and behaviours, also on the principle of “”Fair Play”” as described by FIFA in the “”Futuro II” programme.
– The ADP Facilitator must have a copy of the SAFA Constitution and Rules available.
– The draft white paper on Sport and Recreation is only an alternative reference (p. 14).
– Learners must understand what “”Misconduct” means.
– Learners must know why a code of conduct is important (p. 17).
– P. 18 concept 1 and 2 implies that: Soccer is a game of sport, being conducted within defined boundaries of play and rules. All stakeholders need to adhere to the code of conduct. It is equally important for players to adhere to their code.
– P. 19 provides a base example of a code of conduct for players.
– P.20 22 forces the learner to put in practice the theoretical code of conduct.
– P.23 serves as an application.
Module 5: Keeping the coach and referee motivated
– This module serves as a very basic introduction to the concept of motivation.
– P. 51 needs to be completed before reading the module content.
– P.52 needs to be completed as a group exercise.
– P. 53 concludes that internal and external factors motivates people. This is a very important concept and should be understood by all the learners.
– P.54 serves as the performance check.
– Please note that a number of well written books are available on this topic.
– The principles are applicable to virtually all people.
– Also use “”Analysing Performance Problems”” by Mager and Pipe.
– The content of module 5 is difficult, however, the facilitator needs to make his/her own summary and only presented the major sport injuries.
– The following needs to be covered:
Common types of injuries (avoid scientific names).
Prevention of injuries.
Procedures for arranging firstaid assistance.
List of safety requirements.
Summary of major sport injuries.
– The learner must design and write down the answers to these statements, on a blank piece of paper.
– Also cover the Indemnity Agreement.
– Sport safety is more than just injuries! It also implies safe facilities, arrangements, prevention and first-aid.
Result Criticism Diplomatically
– Concept of “”financing own club, via own effort”.
– Ambition is fine, however, find own money sources.
– The learner meets reality when confronted with criticism. To prepare the learner, emphasise the following: Know your target population; Identify audiences; Be prepared, ready with enough knowledge.
– The learner should be able to understand that the press may be utilised as ally in proudly good publicity.
– The ADP Facilitator should now start drilling the learner how to handle criticism. (Repeat until competent).
– If available, every learner should be video-taped and feedback should be given.
– Check for presentation skills, e.g. eye contact, clarity of speech, words, grammar, verbal and non-verbal language.
– Knowledge about the history of FIFA, CAF and SAFA, as well as his/her own club becomes imperative in handling criticism.
– If alignment between SAFA and the club / region exists, no problems should be experienced.
