Players’ Code of Behaviour

  1. Play by the Rules and within the spirit of the game;
  2. Do not argue with the match official. If you disagree, have your captain or coach approach the match official during a break in play or after the match is concluded;
  3. Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials or other players, deliberately distracting or provoking another person is not acceptable or permitted in any sport;
  4. Maintain your focus and work hard for yourself and your team;
  5. Be a good sport and be prepared to acknowledge good play whether it is from your team or the opposition;
  6. Treat all players as you would like to be treated. Do not interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of another player;
  7. Cooperate with your coach, team mates and opponents. Without them, there would be no competition;
  8. Play for your own enjoyment, and not just to please parents and coaches;
  9. Remove all jewellery prior to training and match play, as it is a hazard to you and those around you;
  10. Do not accept or use any banned or unauthorised drug(s), including the consumption of alcohol at any time.
