Parents, children and football clubs generally look forward to celebrating and or publicising footballing successes by photographing children at matches and events. Documenting a child’s involvement and progress through the season both by film and photos is widely accepted as contributing to the enjoyment of the game. It is also recognised that some coaches find it helpful to use photographs or film as a coaching tool to support a player’s development.
At times throughout the season the club may therefore wish to take photos or videos of the team or individuals in it. The Club adheres to FA Guidelines to ensure these are safe and respectful and used solely for the purposes for which they are intended, which is the promotion and celebration of the activities of the club and for training purposes.
You will be asked when your child joins the Club to indicate whether or not you are happy for photographs to be taken of you or your child. If at any time you are unhappy with the use of a photo by the Club, please contact your Team Manager or the Club Secretary directly and we will arrange to remove it.
