CODES OF CONDUCT
To ensure fair play and respectful behaviour we have drawn up the following codes of good conduct for players, parents & coaches. Although it’s always nice to win, we do not adopt a “win at all costs” attitude. The attitude we try to encourage the girls to adopt is “I’m going to do the best I can for myself and the team“. We want all the girls to succeed, but more importantly, we want them to learn, have fun and enjoy their game.

*Show respect and fair play to your opponents.
*Play within the rules of the game.

*Avoid pressurising players about winning or losing.

COACHES CODE OF CONDUCT
*Give all players, whatever their ability, the chance to play.
