Parent Commitment

One of the forms you must fill in to become a member of Hythe Town Youth FC is the Player & Parent Commitment. This outlines how you are expected to behave and the standards of behaviour we require from not only the players, but parents as well. It’s important to remember that the behaviour of parents on the touchlines directly impacts the club. We can be fined and our teams can lose points due to bad parental behaviour.
