Code of Conduct

Coaches Code Of Behaviour

  • Remember that young people participate for pleasure and winning is only part of the fun.
  • Never ridicule or yell at a young player for making a mistake or not coming first.
  • Be reasonable in your demands on players' time, energy and enthusiasm.
  • Operate within the rules and Spirit of Cricket and teach your players to do the same.
  • Ensure that the time players spend with you is a positive experience.
  • Avoid overplaying the talented players; all young players need and deserve equal time, attention and opportunities.
  • Ensure that equipment and facilities meet safety standards and are appropriate to the age and ability of all players.
  • Display control and respect to all those involved in cricket. This includes opponents, coaches, umpires, administrators, parents and spectators. Encourage your players to do the same.
  • Show concern and caution toward sick and injured players. Follow the advice of a physician when determining whether an injured player is ready to recommence training or competition.
  • Obtain appropriate qualifications and keep up to date with the latest cricket coaching practices and principles of growth and development of young people.
  • Any physical contact with a young person should be appropriate to the situation and necessary for the players' skill development.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

Parents Code Of Behaviour

  • Do not force an unwilling child to participate in cricket.
  • Remember, children are involved in cricket for their enjoyment, not yours.
  • Encourage your child to play by the rules.
  • Focus on the child's efforts and performance rather than winning or losing.
  • Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a game.
  • Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances and skillful play by all participants.
  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities.
  • Respect officials' decisions and teach children to do likewise.
  • Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials and administrators. Without them, your child could not participate.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

Players Code Of Behaviour

  • Play by the rules.
  • Never argue with an umpire. If you disagree, have your captain, coach or manager approach the umpire during a break or after the game.
  • Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials, sledging other players and/or deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent, is unacceptable behaviour and is not permitted in cricket.
  • Work equally hard for yourself and your team-mates. Your team's performance will benefit and so will you.
  • Be a good sport. Applaud all good plays whether they are made by your team or the opposition.
  • Treat all participants in cricket as you like to be treated. Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another competitor.
  • Cooperate with your coach, team-mates and opponents. Without them there would be no competition.
  • Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please parents and coaches.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
