Parents Code of Conduct

  • Encourage children to participate if they are interested. If they are not, don’t force them.  Focus on playing the game, reducing the emphasis on winning. 

  • Teach children that an honest effort is as important as victory, so that the result of each game is accepted without undue disappointment.

  • Encourage children to always play, by the rules.

  • Do not criticise children in front of others, but reserve constructive criticism for more private moments.

  • Remember a child learns best by example. Applaud good play by all teams.

  • Accept decisions of all referees as being fair and called to the best of their ability. Do not raise issues of disagreement publicly.

  • Do not criticise opposing team members or supporters by word or gesture.

  • Set a good example by your own conduct, behaviour and appearance.

  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities.

  • Avoid use of derogatory language based on gender, race or impairment.
