FC First Touch is affiliated to the London Football Association and the Tandridge league. Both bodies aim to ensure a safe environment for all players of the game. If a child receives a yellow or red card during a game, or if their behaviour after the game is deemed inappropriate, the incidents will be reported to the FA or the League by the referee or officials from the opposition.
Incidents that may be reported include the use of offensive or threatening language, persistent or reckless fouls, lack of respect towards match day officials, or any other behaviour deemed inappropriate. The League and FA will then review each reported incident.
As a result, the FA and the League may issue player fines. The fines start at £10 and can increase depending on the severity of the incident. There is also a late fine charge of £15 for any fines paid late.
By registering for FC First Touch, parents agree to promptly pay any individual player fines issued by the FA or the League. Failure to pay fines will result in the immediate suspension of the player from all training and games until the fine is paid.
I. If you are struggling to pay fees, please contact T, our Administration on 07538548318.
II. Failure to pay fees on time or maintain payments will result in your child being dismissed from the team.
III. Unpaid personal fines issued by the league or the FA from any matches will result in your child not being selected for matches until these fines are paid.
IV. FC First Touch reserves the right to dismiss a player from the team.
V. The club operates a no refund policy if your child is signed by another club, asked to leave the club due to ill-discipline, or simply does not wish to play for the club. However, if a player is released from the club for other reasons, the club will consider the circumstances for a refund on a case-by-case basis.
VI. If you have outstanding fees from the previous season, you will not be permitted to register for the current season until those fees are paid.
