  • Never ridicule, yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a game;

  • Respect the match official’s decisions and teach your child to do likewise;

 

  • Show respect and appreciation to Club officials, including coaches, officials and administrators. Ensure any issues are raised through the correct channels;
