Players Code of Conduct
Play by the rules – the rules of our club and the laws of the game.
Never argue with an umpire or other official – without these people, you cannot play football.
Control your temper – verbal abuse of officials and sledging other players doesn’t help you enjoy or win any games.
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 and to improve your skills.
Don’t use ugly remarks based on race, religion, gender or ability – you will let down your coach, team-mates and family if you do and many such comments are actually now illegal.
Physical abuse or verbal abuse of club participants, other clubs supporters or officials is not acceptable behaviour and could be subject to Section 7 of the constitution.
*** Players under the age of 18 will not be served alcohol at any time during the season including any function or after game awards. This is non negotiable.
*** No alcohol will be served to or consumed by Reserve or Senior Players before half time in the Seniors Game
