The FC Riverside County Code of Conduct

Overview

The FC Riverside County Code of Conduct (FCRCCC) is designed to bring order and sustainability to practice sessions, pickup games, official games, events, and other activities involving player members of FC Riverside County. The FCRCCC is comprised of 10 rules all player members must follow. The FCRCCC will be strictly enforced and used to determine disciplinary actions including suspensions and five -year expulsions taken against player members. The executive team must uplift a player member’s suspension before they are allowed to participate with FC Riverside County.

Disciplinary actions against player members will be documented in a Write-up. A Write-up includes a conclusion of the investigation and reasoning of how a rule was broken, the setting where the rule was broken, and the disciplinary action FC Riverside County will take against the player member disciplined. Player members are privileged to a copy of their Write-up if disciplinary action is taken against them. The FCRCCC can be changed at any time without notice. FC Riverside County will work hard to ensure player members are properly notified if any changes to the FCRCCC do occur.
