Players: Code of Conduct

Play by the rules – the rules of your club and laws of the game.
• Never argue with an umprie or other official – without these people, you can’t 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 great game treat it that way.
• Treat all players as you would like to be treated – fairly.
• Co-operate with your coaches, 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’ll let down your coach, team mates and family if you do – and many such comments are actually now illegal.
