Code of Behaviour for Parents

 

  • Remember that children play sport for their enjoyment, not yours.

  • Encourage children to participate. DO NOT force them.

  • Focus on the child's efforts and performances, ie. Personal Bests, rather than winning or losing

  • Encourage children to always play by the rules

  • Never ridicule or yell at a child for making mistakes or losing an event

  • Remember that children learn best by example.

  • Applaud good efforts by all athletes

  • If you disagree with an official, raise the issue through the appropriate channel.  Do not question the officials judgement and honesty in public.  Remember that most officials give their time and effort for your child to compete

  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from all sporting activities

 

Please remember that it is the parent helpers that are the team leaders. 

Without your help, the children, YOUR CHILDREN, cannot compete.

 

We always need help! Especially team leaders, time keepers and help in the canteen.
