  • Play by the rules.
  • Never argue with an official - if you need clarification, have your captain, coach or manager approach the official during a break or after the competition.
  • Work equally as hard for yourself and your team - your team’s performance will benefit-so will you.
  • Be a good sport - applaud all good plays whether they are made by your team or the opposition.
  • Show respect to and acknowledge opponents and officials- shake hands before and after the game and say things like ‘good luck’, ‘thanks for the game’, ‘thanks ref’, ‘three cheers for…’.
  • Cooperate with your coach, team mates and opponents - without team there would be no competition.
  • Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit - not just to please parents and coaches.
  • Play fair - no verbal abuse of officials, sledging other players (including vilification) or deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all the participants - regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
