  • Follow the “Golden Rule” - Treat all other players as you would like to be treated.
  • Play for the fun of it.
  • Play by the rules.
  • Never argue with an official. If you disagree, ask your captain or coach to approach the official during a break or after the game.
  • Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials or other players, deliberately fouling or provoking an opponent and throwing equipment is not acceptable or permitted in any sport.
  • Work equally hard for yourself and your team. Your team's performance will benefit and so will you.
  • Be a good sport and cheer all players whether they be your team or the other team.
  • Do not interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of another player.
  • Co-operate with your coach, team mates and opponents; without them, there would be no game.
  • Bullying will not be tolerated in any instance and will be dealt with harshly by the Club Disciplinary Committee.

 

PARENTS / GUARDIANS

  • Follow the “Golden Rule” – Treat people the way you would like to be treated
  • If children are interested, encourage them to play sport. However, if a child is not willing to play, do not force him or her.
  • Focus on the child's efforts and performance rather than the overall outcome of the game. This assists the child in setting realistic goals related to his / her ability by reducing the emphasis on winning.
  • Teach children that winning isn’t everything, it’s how you play the game that is important, so the result of each game is accepted without due disappointment.
  • Encourage children to always play by the rules.
  • Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a game.
  • Remember, children are involved in sport for their enjoyment, not yours.
  • Remember that children learn best from example. Applaud good players from both teams.
  • If you disagree with an official, raise the issue through the appropriate channels rather than question the official's judgment and integrity in public.
  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities.
  • Understand the importance of volunteer coaches who give their time to provide recreational activities for the children and deserve your support.

 

 SPECTATORS:

  • Follow the “Golden Rule” – treat people the way you would like to be treated.
  • Demonstrate appropriate social behaviour by not using foul language, harassing players, coaches or officials.
  • Children play sport for fun. They are not playing for the entertainment of spectators only.
  • Congratulate both teams upon their performance regardless of the game's outcome.
  • Respect the official's decision and teach children to do likewise.
  • Never ridicule or scold a child for making a mistake during a game. Positive comments are motivational.
  • Condemn the use of violence in any form, be it by spectators, coaches, officials or players.
  • Show respect for your team's opponents. Without them, there would be no game.
  • Encourage players to play according to the rules and official's decisions.
