Parent's Code

■ Do not force an unwilling child to participate in sport.

■ Remember, children are involved in sport for their enjoyment, not yours.

■ Encourage your child to play by the rules.

■ Teach your child that honest effort is as important as victory so that the result of each game is accepted without undue disappointment.

■ Turn defeat into victory by helping your child to work towards skill improvement and good sportsmanship. Never ridicule or yell at your child for making a mistake or losing a game.

■ Remember that children learn best by example. Applaud good play by your team and by members of the opposing team.

■ Do not publicly question the referee’s judgement and never their honesty. If you do you will be asked to leave the ‘field of play’.

■ Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from children’s sport.

■ Recognise the value and importance of volunteer coaches. They give up their time and resources to provide recreational activities for your child.
