Players 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 and sledging other players, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable or permitted behaviours in any sport.

  • Work equally hard for yourself and/or your team. Your team’’s performance will benefit, 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 parents and coaches.

  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

Spectator's Code of Behaviour​

  • Remember that children play sport for their enjoyment, not yours.

  • Applaud good performance and efforts from each team.

  • Congratulate all participants upon their performance regardless of the games outcome.

  • Respect officials' decisions and teach children to do the same.

  • Never ridicule or scold a child for making a mistake. Positive comments are motivational.

  • Condemn the use of violence in any form be it by spectators, coaches, officials or players.

  • Encourage players to follow the rules and the officials decisions.

  • Do not use foul language or harass players, coaches or officials.
