Tips for Administrators

I will:

  • create pathways for club members to participate as players but also as coaches, referees, administrators etc
  • ensure that rules, equipment, length of games and training schedules are modified to suit the age, ability and maturity level of players
  • ensure quality supervision and coaching for players
  • remember that players participate for their enjoyment and benefit
  • help coaches and officials highlight appropriate behaviour and skill development, and help improve the standards of coaching and officiating
  • ensure that everyone involved in sport emphasises fair play
  • distribute a code of conduct to players, coaches, officials and parents and encourage them to follow it
  • respect the rights, dignity and worth of all people involved in the game, regardless of their gender, ability or cultural background
  • promote adherence to anti-doping policies.

I will not:

  • arrive at the venue intoxicated or drink alcohol at junior matches
  • allow the unlawful supply of alcohol at training, games or club functions
  • use bad language, nor will I harass players, coaches, officials or spectators.
