Iona Sports Club Parent Code of Conduct

Parents and carers have a responsibility to support your child’s sporting activities in a positive way on and off the field. This includes being a role model and encouraging good behaviour in not only your own child but also their teammates, coach, manager and other spectators.

Supporting your child and their team is natural, but it needs to be done in a positive, supportive and harassment-free environment.

As a parent I will:
- Remember that children participate in sport for their enjoyment, not my own

- Encourage children to participate, do not force them

- Focus on your child’s efforts and performance rather than whether they win or lose

- Encourage children to play according to the rules and to settle disagreements without resorting to hostility or violence

- Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a competition

- Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performance and skillful plays by all participants

- Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities.

- Respect official’s decisions and children to do likewise

- Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials, and administrators. Without them, your child could not participate

- Never arrive at any venue intoxicated or drink alcohol at junior matches

- Never use inappropriate language, I will not harass players, coaches, officials or other spectators

- Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion

- Remember your child's participation in this sport is at your own risk and should an ambulance be required it is at your expense
I understand that if I do not follow the Codes above, any/all of the following actions may be taken by my club or completion administrator. I may:

- Be required to apologise to other parents, the team and referee

- Receive a formal warning from the committee

- Be suspended from attending matches

- My child’s registration may be cancelled
