Code of Behaviour Policy

Endorsed 2010

Administration / Officials

  • Ensure that equal opportunity for participation in sports is made available to all children, regardless of ability, size, shape, sex, age, disability or ethnic origin.
  • Ensure that rules, equipment, length of games and training schedules take into consideration the age, ability and maturity level of participating children.
  • Ensure that adequate supervision is provided by qualified and competent coaches and officials capable of developing appropriate sports behaviour and skill technique.
  • Remember that children participate for enjoyment and play down the importance of rewards.
  • Provide clinics aimed at improving the standards of coaching and officiating, with an emphasis on appropriate behaviour and skill technique.
  • Ensure that parents, coaches, sponsors, physicians and participants understand their responsibility regarding fair play.
  • Modify rules and regulations to match the skill level of children and their needs.
  • Condemn unsporting behaviour and promote respect for all opponents.
  • Publicly encourage rule changes which will reinforce the principles of participants for fun and enjoyment.
  • Ensure that your behaviour is consistent with the principles of good sporting behaviour.
  • Make a personal commitment to keep yourself informed of sound officiating principles and the principles of growth and development of children.

Players

  • Play by the rules.
  • Never argue with an official.  If you disagree, discuss the matter with your coach after the game.
  • Control your temper.  Verbal abuse of officials or other players, or provoking an opponent is not acceptable.
  • Work equally hard for yourself and/or for you team.  Your team’s performance will benefit and so will you.
  • Be a good sport.  Applaud all good plays whether they be by your team, opponent or other team.
  • Treat all players as you would like to be treated.  Do not interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of another player.
  • Co-operate with your coach, umpire, team mates and opponents. Without them there would be no competition.
  • Play for the fun of it and not just to please parents and coaches.
  • Avoid using derogatory language.

Coaches

  • Be reasonable in your demands on young players’ time, energy and enthusiasm.
  • Avoid over-playing the talented players, the just average players need and deserve equal time.
  • Remember that children participate for fun and enjoyment.
  • Ensure that equipment and facilities meet safety standards and are appropriate to the age and ability of the players.
  • Take into consideration the maturity level of the children, when scheduling and determining the length of practice time and competition.
  • Develop team respect for the ability of opponents as well as for the judgement of officials and opposing coaches.
  • Follow the advice of a physician when determining when an injured player is ready to recommence training or competition.
  • Keep yourself informed of sound coaching principles and the principles of growth and development of children.
  • Create opportunities to teach appropriate sports behaviour as well as basic skills.
  • Ensure that skill learning and appropriate sports behaviour have priority over highly structured competitions for young children.
  • Help children understand the responsibilities and the implications of their freedom to choose between fair and unfair play.
