Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct


1. Play by the rules
2. Never argue with an official. If you disagree, have your captain, coach or manager approach the official during the break or after the competition.
3. Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials or other players, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent is not acceptable or permitted in any sport.
4. Work equally hard for yourself and/or your team. Your team's performance will benefit, so will you.
5. Be a good sport. Applaud all good plays whether they be by your team or the opposition.
6. Treat all players as you would like to be treated. Do not interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of another player.
7. Co-operate with your coach, team-mates and opponents. Without them there would be no competition.
8. Play for the fun of it, and not just to please parents and and/ or coaches (applies to juniors).



1. Remember that people participate for pleasure and that winning is only part of the fun.
2. Never ridicule or yell at a player for making a mistake or losing.
3. Be reasonable in your demands on young players' time, energy and enthusiasm.
4. Teach your players to follow the rules.
5. Whenever possible, group players to ensure that everyone has a reasonable chance of success.

7. Ensure that equipment and facilities meet safety standards and are appropriate to the age and ability of the players.
8. Develop team respect for the ability of opponents and for the judgement of officials and opposing coaches.
9. Follow the advice of a physician when determining when an injured player is ready to recommence training and competition.
