FC1919 Policies

Empowering children:

FC1919 programs are designed to be thought provoking, skill developing and all inclusive. We promote healthy, active programs that encourage all children to be involved and included. We believe all children should receive equal time on the ball and promote games and training to emphasise this commitment.  


Risk management:

All due care is taken to avoid the prospect of injury or interruption to a FC1919 Program. We have a 16-1 policy that ensures coaches are not overloaded with too many participants. We also have adopted a two coach policy, ensuring no coach is left alone to deal with any potential problems that arise during a session. All coaches are trained and hold necessary qualifications to deal with a wide range of problems. 


Numbers policy:

FC1919 Soccer promotes a minimum of two coaches per program and a policy of numbers being a maximum of 16 participants per coach. This is to minimize risk and maximize participant and coach interaction.  


Sign in and sign out policies:

Sign in; All FC1919 Coaches are supplied with an up to date roll for each program. Participants will be marked off the role by the coach at the commencement of each day of each program.


Sign out; No child will be permitted to leave without a parent/guardian collecting them and signing them out on the roll. FC1919 must be made aware of those going to after-school care or have alternative arrangements for the conclusion of the program. No child will be permitted to leave unless FC1919 is aware of the arrangement.

All FC1919 coaches hold a minimum of the following qualifications; 

  • Working with children blue card

All coaches are required to attend specific coaches days held by our director of coaching/ Technical Director.  


FC1919 take pride in our coaches and therefore all must have a friendly, approachable demeanor, a positive disposition and, be a role model for the program participants.
