PLAYERS CODE OF CONDUCT

MANDATORY & ENFORCEABLE CODES OF CONDUCT FOR PLAYERS

  • Play by the rules – the rules of your club and the laws of the game
  • Never argue with an umpire or other official – without these people you can’t play football.
  • Control your temper -verbal abuse of officials and sledging other players doesn’t help you enjoy or win any games
  • Never argue with an umpire or official. If you disagree, discuss the matter with your coach.
  • Be a team player – It’s a team game, treat it that way.
  • Treat all players as you would like to be treated -fairly.
  • Co-operate with your coach, the umpires and team-mates.
  • Play for your own enjoyment & to improve your skills.
  • Don’t use ugly remarks based on race, religion, gender or ability – you’ll let down your coach, team-mates and family if you do – & many such comments are actually now illegal.
