Code of Conduct

  • Do not force an unwilling child to participate.
  • Remember, children are involved in Nippers for their enjoyment, not yours.
  • Encourage your child to always play by the rules.
  • Teach your child that honest effort is as important as winning so that results are accepted without undue disappointment.
  • Help your child with skills development and good sportsmanship. Never ridicule or yell at your child for making a mistake.
  • Children learn by example. Applaud all good efforts from any competitors.
  • Do not publicly question an official’s judgment and never their honesty.
  • Recognise the value and importance of volunteer coaches. They give up their time and resources to provide our children with these recreational activities.

 

Competitors Code

  • Participate for the fun of it, not to please your parents or coach.
  • Play by the rules.
  • Never argue with an official’s decision.
  • Control your temper.
  • Work equally hard for yourself and your club. Your club will benefit and so will you.
  • Be a good sport. Applaud all good efforts by yourself or a competitor.
  • Treat all competitors, as you would like to be treated.
  • Remember the aims of the club are to have fun, improve your skills and to keep healthy. Don’t be a show off.

 Co-operate with your Age Manager, your coach and team mates, for without them we don’t have a Club.
