2. Codes of Coduct

The UK Athletics (UKA) and the Home Country Athletics Federations (HCAF) Codes of Conduct set out national standards of conduct for all clubs, coaches, officials, volunteers and athletes in the sport. The 2021 revised codes take account of developments in national policy, guidance and practice. Every club, club member and anyone undertaking a relevant role must agree to abide by the codes of conduct.

The purpose of a code is to clarify:

  • what behaviours are acceptable and unacceptable
  • the standards of practice expected
  • the basis for challenging and improving practice.

The codes are a guide for individuals and clubs to think about, and monitor, how they, and others, conduct themselves in their roles. The codes let everyone know what they can expect from the club, coaches and volunteers, but also what standard of behaviour is expected from club members, athletes and parents/carers.

When a club member does not meet the expectations set out in the codes, disciplinary or performance management action may be taken by the club.


Children and young people have their own codes of conduct and should be clear about their club’s expectations in terms of acceptable behaviour and conduct.
