The Positive or Pointless campaign has been established by the Queensland Government - Department of Communities Sport & Recreation Services in conjunction with the junior football codes played in Queensland - AFL, Rugby League, Rugby Union and Soccer - and is designed to help build a positive culture in these sports.
Along with the governing bodies, Brisbane Lions premiership player Luke Power, Queensland State of Origin Star Cameron Smith, Queensland Reds player Will Genia and Shane Stefanutto from the Queensland Roar and Socceroos have also offered their assistance in promoting the campaign.
Power has thrown his support behind the campaign, stating “Children are the future of our game – encourage them to do their best but let them enjoy it too.”
The Queensland Government believes that sport is an integral part of the Queensland way of life and provides a wonderful opportunity for people to be active and healthy and make enduring friendships. Junior sport is a great environment for improving our children’s health and teaching them a range of life skills. Sport builds discipline, leadership, self esteem and confidence.
Minister for Sport, the Honourable Phil Reeves MP encourages all parents, players, officials and supporters to get behind the program.
“If we want our kids to keep participating in physical activities, it is essential that their experience in junior sport is positive and fun.”
AFL QLD is concerned about the increasing number of complaints being made about the unacceptable use of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social networking sites by people involved as players or officials with AFL QLD.
There are examples where the sites have been used to bully footballers, to criticise umpires or to make racist or sexist remarks about other participants. This type of behaviour is totally unacceptable in Australian Football and will not be tolerated.
Under AFLQ's Reports and Tribunals regulations, behaviour which is unacceptable can be brought to a Tribunal even if the behaviour did not occur on the field. AFLQ have no hesitation in referring to the Tribunal the misuse of social networking sites if it relates to Australian Football under the jurisdiction of AFL Queensland.
All members of Maroochy Roos Junior AFC (including family members) are to be mindful of this policy.more
