Player Code of Behaviour

  • Play by the rules;
  • Never argue with an official – if you disagree, have your captain, coach or manager approach the official during a break or after the competition;
  • Control your temper – verbal abuse of officials, sledging other players or deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent is not acceptable or permitted;
  • Work equally hard for yourself and your team – your team’s performance will benefit and so will you;
  • Be a good sport – applaud all good plays whether they are made by your team or the opposition;
  • Treat all participants in your sport as you like to be treated. Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another competitor;
  • Cooperate with your coach, team-mates and opponents – without them, there would be no competition;
  • Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please your parents and coaches; and
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

Parent Code of Behaviour

  • Remember that children participate in sport for their enjoyment, not yours;
  • Encourage children to participate, do not force them;
  • Focus on your child’s efforts and performance rather than whether they win or lose;
  • Encourage children to play according to the rules and to settle disagreements without resorting to hostility or violence;
  • Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a competition;
  • Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performance and skilful plays by all participants;
  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities;
  • Respect officials’ decisions and teach children to do likewise;
  • Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials and administrators – without them, your child could not participate; and
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
