Information about Club/player discipline and fines
The London Youth Premier Showcase aims to ensure a safe environment for all players of the game.
If your child/player is given a yellow or a red card during a game, or the behaviour of your son after the game is deemed to be inappropriate, the referee or officials from the opposition will report such incidents to the League
Incidents would include the use of offensive or threatening language, persistent or reckless fouls, lack of respect towards match day officials and any other such behaviour deemed to be inappropriate. The League will then review each reported incident.
As a consequence the League may issue club/player fines. The fines start at £10 upwards depending on the severity of the incident with a late fine charge if applicable for any fines paid late.
In registering for the league, clubs agree to make prompt payment for any individual player fines issued by the League. Failure to pay fines will result in the immediate suspension of the club/player until such time the fine is paid.
In joining the league players and parents agree to our code of conduct
As well as teaching good football we want our boys to be well-rounded citizens and role models both on and off the pitch. It is important that parents/carers/ spectators set an example and follow the code of conduct below both at training and matches
Respect the coaches and volunteers of the club and speak to them in an appropriate manner
Remain outside the field of play and behind the Designated Spectator Area (where provided)
Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour
Always respect the match officials’ decisions
Applaud effort and good play as well as success
In addition, when attending youth games we expect:
Remember that children play for FUN
Let the coaches do their job and not confuse the players by telling them what to do
Encourage the players to respect the opposition and match officials
Never criticise a player for making a mistake -mistakes are part of learning
If you breach the above it may result in action being taken by the League .

How long are companies allowed to keep hold of DBS data?
Once a recruitment (or other relevant) decision has been made, organisations should not keep disclosure information for any longer than is absolutely necessary. This is generally for a period of up to six months to allow for the consideration and resolution of any disputes or complaints.
How should they dispose of it?
Organisations should ensure that the information is destroyed via secure means, i.e. by shredding, pulping or burning.
Employee files should be kept in a secure, locked cabinet, and access should be restricted to trusted individuals. In line with regulations, DBS reports should be securely destroyed after six months.
