Ethics in testing

During Functional Screening, a number of precautions should be taken in order to ensure that ethical standards are met. Permission of players should be obtained in advance if photo or video recording is to be carried out. In the case of minors and young players, another adult should be present at all times.

Coaches undertaking screening should note that the Code of Ethics requires that results should be treated confidentially.
