Codes Of Conduct
AFL Queensland and through that affiliation, the Australian Football League has the charter to arrange, administer, control and manage all matches of junior and youth AFL football played by its member Clubs.
We regulate our competition through the provisions contained in the AFLQ State junior Football Rules and Regulations, the AFL Laws Of Australian Football (as may be modified to suit different age groups), certain Codes of Conduct, policies and resolutions that AFLQ may amend from time to time.
In organising our competition comes a clear responsibility for all administrators, coaches, volunteers, parents, players and spectators to act in a constructive and encouraging manner at all times.
Coaches have the highest responsibility to their Clubs and to the children and young people in their care to be a strong, positive role model, teacher, mentor and friend who is able to teach fairness, sportsmanship, friendly competition, conflict resolution and strong ethics.
Parents need to set the right example at the sports ground, not just at home. They should be proud of their child’s efforts irrespective of the result.
We recognise that:
- Sport for children is a vital part of their growing up and is important to their self esteem.
- Children like to win, but more importantly, they want to play and to have fun.
- Children develop at different rates and have varying abilities on the playing field but that all children must be given the best opportunity to play the game.
To ensure that the objectives of AFLQ are consistently met, integral within the AFLQ State junior Football Rules and Regulations are CODES OF CONDUCT for Coaches, Players, Spectators, Parents, Administrators / Officials and Umpires that AFLQ takes particularly seriously.
