Code of Conduct for Sharks Parents/Carers

Abide by our Code of Conduct for Sharks at all times

We run a silent coaching policy on match days:

  • Please DO NOT coach from the sidelines. It is confusing for the player.
  • You may not be aware of a move of instructions they may have received.
  • You cannot see what they can see.

All parents or carers must:

  • Encourage your child to learn the rules and play within them.
  • Discourage unfair play and arguing with officials.
  • Help your child to recognise good performance, not just results.
  • Never force your child to take part in sport.
  • Set a good example by recognising fair play and applauding the good performances of all.
  • Never punish or belittle a child for losing or making mistakes.
  • Publicly accept officials’ judgements.
  • Support your child’s involvement and help them to enjoy their sport.
  • Use correct and proper language at all times.
