Supporters Code of Conduct

THE GOOD SPECTATOR'S CODE

Our spectators are encouraged to:

  • Act as positive role models to all players.
  • Be familiar with, and abide by, the RFU Child Protection Guidelines in relation to verbal and emotional abuse.
  • Respect guidance from the Club or School with regard to spectator behaviour.
  • Remember children play sport primarily for their own enjoyment, not for that of
  • spectators.
  • Acknowledge good individual and team performance from all players irrespective of the team in which they play.
  • Respect match officials' decisions, even if they appear to be a mistake - remember, they are volunteers proving an opportunity for players to play rugby.
  • Never verbally abuse players, coaches, match officials or fellow spectators: such
  • behaviour can create a negative environment for players and their behaviour will often reflect this.
  • Acknowledge effort and good performance rather than "to win at all costs'.
  • Verbally encourage all players in a positive manner, shouting "for' not "at' the players.
  • Encourage all players irrespective of their ability - never ridicule any individual player,
  • regardless of the team in which they play.
