|Parent's / Spectator's Code of Conduct
- Encourage but do not force children to participate.
- Focus upon efforts and performances rather than the overall outcome of an event. This assists young players in setting realistic goals related to their ability by reducing the emphasis on winning.
- Teach young players that an honest effort is as important as victory, so that the result of each game is accepted without undue disappointment.
- Encourage participation according to the rules.
- Never ridicule or yell at a player for making a mistake.
- Remember, young players play organised sport for their enjoyment, not yours.
- Young players learn best from example. Applaud good plays by all teams.
- If you disagree with an official, raise the issue through the appropriate channels rather than question the official's judgement and honesty in public. Remember that most officials give their time and effort for your child's involvement.
- Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities.
- Recognise the value and importance of volunteer coaches. They give their time and resources to provide recreational activities for children and deserve your support.
- Show respect for your fellow Club members.
