The FA launched Respect, a good behavioural programme, in professional and grassroots football in August 2008 and Stockton Town fully supports this initative.

Respect came about through concern from the grassroots game as to the damage arising from abuse towards referees, a lack of referees in the grassroots game and poor sideline behaviour – particularly in youth football.

To assist The FA in this Stockton Town insist that each Manager / Coach, Player and Parent read and sign the Club’s Code of Conduct each Season.
