Player Code Of Conduct

We are passionate about inclusion, sport and social interactions for our superstars

Code of Conduct for Players


Players are the most important people in the sport. Playing for the team, and for the team to win, is the most fundamental part of the game however inclusion is the key to football for all. We promote respect for everybody’s ability - Fair Play and respect for all others in the game. 


These Code’s key concepts are valid for players at all levels in Woking Wolves Disability Football for All (WDFFA).

  3. A player should where possible arrange for their own transport to these fixtures and tournaments unless pre-arranged transport has been provided or agreed with the team manager. If transport is an issue, then this needs to be brought to the attention of the team manager to see if there is a workable solution.
