Code of Conduct

Players

  • Play by the rules (of both the laws of the Game and the rules of my club).
  • Never argue with an official. If you disagree, discuss the matter with your coach or teacher after the game.
  • Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials or other players, or provoking an opponent is not acceptable.
  • Work equally hard for yourself and for your team. Your team’s performance will benefit, so will you.
  • Be a good sport. Applaud all good plays whether they be by your team, opponent or the other team.
  • Treat all players as you would like to be treated. Do not interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of another player.
  • Cooperate with your coach, team mates and opponents. Without them there would no competition.
  • Play for the “fun of it” and not just to please parents and coaches.
  • Avoid using derogatory language.
  • The club strives to achieve an inclusive environment and believes that everyone should be treated with the same dignity and respect. The club will not tolerate the vilification or discrimination of individuals based on racial back ground, culture, religion or gender.
  • Players are expected to attend matches dressed neatly and in the attire directed by the club.
  • Be prepared to take responsibility for your actions.

Junior/Youth/Auskick Coaches

  • Be reasonable in your demands on young players’ time, energy and enthusiasm.
  • Avoid over-playing the talented players. The “just-average” players need and deserve equal time.
  • Remember that children participate for fun and enjoyment.
  • Ensure that equipment and facilities meet safety standards and are appropriate to the age and ability of the players.
  • Take into consideration the maturity level of the children, when scheduling and determining the length of practice times and competition.
  • Develop team respect for the ability of opponents as well as for the judgment of officials and opposing coaches.
  • Ensure positive coach / umpire relationships are continually developed.
  • Follow the advice of a physician when determining when an injured player is ready to recommence training or competition.
  • Keep yourself informed of sound coaching principles and the principles of growth and development of children.
  • Create opportunities to teach appropriate sports behaviour as well as basic skills.
  • Ensure that skill learning and appropriate sports behaviour have priority over highly structured competitions for young children.
  • Help children understand the responsibilities and implications of their freedom to choose between fair and unfair play.
  • Ensure knowledge of laws of game is such that you encourage the players to play the game and accept the role of the umpire.
  • The club strives to achieve an inclusive environment and believes that everyone should be treated with the same dignity and respect. The club will not tolerate the vilification or discrimination of individuals based on racial back ground, culture, religion or gender.
