Sport should be played in a positive and supportive environment. Every participant, in whatever role, has the right to participate in an environment that is fun, rewarding, safe and healthy. Bad behaviour is not tolerated inside the class room or in the sporting arena.
- All participants must satisfy the requirements of the player/participants role and responsibilities
- Coach/team manager has the authority to deal with, using reasonable means, players who are deemed to have committed a minor breach of their roles and responsibilities.
- Any major breach or inappropriate behaviour that occurs outside the school or causes harm to another individual falls outside the coaches/managers jurisdiction and the school should be notified of the offence immediately.
If the player continually breaches their player/participant roles and responsibilities or commits an offence that falls outside the coaches/managers jurisdiction the coach should:
- Approach the offending student to resolve the issue and inform her that the behaviour is inappropriate and that the school will be notified of the incident.
- In the case of the offence occurring during a competition, the student’s parents can be notified and requested to come and remove the student from the competition. In the case a parent cannot be contacted the student may be sent home at the expense of the parent, in conjunction with the College.
- The Director of Sport must be notified of the incident the morning of the first school day after the incident occurs. (Coach may be required to submit their version of the incident in writing depending on its severity)
- The Director of Sport will refer the student to the student’s dean who will deal with the incident accordingly. The Coach will be advised of the schools decision.
PARENT’S CODE OF CONDUCT
- If children are interested, encourage them to play sport. However, if a child is not willing to play, do not force them
- Focus upon the player’s efforts and performance rather than the overall outcome of the event. This assists the child in setting realistic goals relating to her ability by reducing the emphasis on winning
- Encourage players to always abide by the rules of the sport
- Never ridicule or shout at a child for making a mistake or losing the game
- Remember children are involved in organised sport for their enjoyment, not yours
- Applaud good play by both teams
- If you disagree with an official, raise the issue through the appropriate channels rather than question the official’s judgement and honesty in public. Remember, most officials give them time and effort for your child’s involvement
- Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting events
- Recognise and value the importance of volunteer coaches. They give their time and resources to provide recreational activities for the children and deserve your support
- Any issues must be dealt with through the Sports staff.
