Policies and Procedures
Coventry United Football Club (incorporating Coventry United Ladies Football Club) maintain a comprehensive set of policies covering all aspects of club operations. All documents apply equally to all stakeholders working with or supporting the club, regardless of specific references to particular teams (eg CULFC - Coventry United Ladies Football Club policies also apply to the men's senior side).
In the interests of the advancement of football, organisations are welcome to copy our policies, but you do so at your own risk and should ensure relevancy and currency to your particular organisation. All we ask in return is any improvements are shared with us.
Policies were last revised in their entirety on 18th March 2019. It is not our intention to mislead, confuse or cause concern. If you identify an issue with any policy, we would like to hear from you via the contact form.
