Parents: Code of Conduct

Perhaps the most important people when it comes to abiding by codes of conducts are the parents and supporters. They are the ones who set the example that the children will follow therefore the Parade/St Damians JFC expect that parents and supporters will model good behaviour and abide by their code of conduct.
•Remember that you are there for the participants to enjoy the game.
•Encourage participation but do not force them.
•Teach that enjoyment is more than winning.
•Never ridicule mistakes or losses – supporters are there to support not downgrade.
•Lead by example and respect all players, coaches, umpires, and spectators – physical or verbal abuse will not be tolerated.
•Recognise all volunteers who are giving up their valuable time.
•Never publicly criticise umpires – raise personal concerns with club officials in private.
•Don’t use ugly remarks based on race, religion, gender or ability – you’ll let your family down and yourself if you do – and many such comments are actually illegal now.

By registering our child with the Parade/St Damians JFC we agree to abide by these principles. We support the Club in its undertakings and encourage the Club to take any necessary disciplinary actions including the suspension and banning where warranted of any players, parents or spectators for repeated or serious breaches of these Codes of Conduct.
