Parents’ Code of Conduct

 

  • Remember that you are there for the participants to enjoy the game

  • Remember that enjoyment is more important than winning.

  • Never ridicule mistakes or losses – supporters are there to support and not downgrade.

  • Lead by examples

  • Lead by example and respect all players, officials and spectators – physical or verbal abuse will not be tolerated.

  • Recognize all volunteers who are giving up their valuable time.

  • Never publicly criticize officials – they are volunteering

  • Don’t use ugly remarks based on race, religion, gender or ability – you’ll let down your family and yourself, if you do – & many such comments are actually now illegal.

By registering you or your child with the 2020 PERTH’S GOALKEEPER BATTLE (3rd Edition) you agree to abide by these principles.
