GRM Code of Conduct for Players PDF Print E-mail

• Have fun.
• Play by the Laws of the Game. It is just as important to understand the spirit of the Laws. The Laws are designed to make the game fun to play and fun to watch. By sticking to the Laws, you will enjoy the game more.
• Play to win. Winning is the object of playing any game. Never set out to lose. If you do not play to win, you are cheating your opponents, deceiving those who are watching and fooling yourself. Never give up against stronger opponents and never relent against weaker ones.
• Play fair. Winning is without value if victory has been achieved unfairly or dishonestly. Playing fair requires courage and character and is more satisfying. Playing fair earns you respect, while cheats are detested.
• Never argue with an official. If you disagree with a decision, ask your Manger if he or she might approach the official for clarification after the completion of the game.
• Be punctual and prepared for all training sessions and games in order to learn about the fundamentals, skills, strategy and Laws of the Game from the Coaches and trainers.
• Wear proper Club uniform and equipment to and from all games and training sessions.
• Wear shin guards and bring a ball (preferably marked with your name), water, towel and other kit as required to all training sessions.
• Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials, other players or spectators is unacceptable behaviour and may result in send offs and suspension.
• Deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent is not an acceptable or permitted behaviour.
• Be honest with the coach concerning illness and injury and ability to train and compete to the best of your ability
• Work equally hard for yourself and your team. Your team’s performance will benefit; so will you. A professional approach to language, manner, temper and punctuality is to be adopted at all times.
• Promote the interests of football; it is the world’s greatest game. Think of football’s interests before your own. Think how your actions may affect the image of the game, your Club, your team, your family. Talk about the positive things in the game
• Encourage other people to watch it, play it fairly and be positive. Be an ambassador for the game.
• Be a good sport. Acknowledge all good plays whether your team or the opposition makes them.
• Treat all participants as you like to be treated. Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another competitor.
• Cooperate with your Coach, team mates and opponents.
• Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please parents and coaches.
• Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
• Physical violence will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
• Abide by the FNSW Smoking Policy, which bans tobacco smoking by coaches, assistant coaches, managers, team officials and players in dressing rooms, change rooms, medical rooms, technical areas, access ways to and from the field, canteens and anywhere where team officials, players or members of the public may be affected at training sessions and games.
• The consumption of alcohol is expressly forbidden by players, managers, coaches and team officials whilst involved in the active period of competition or training, or prior to games or training sessions.
• Work with the Coach and Assistant Coaches in whatever way you can to support their activities and the good of the team(s).
