Dandenong City FC

 

PLAYERS’ CODE OF BEHAVIOUR

(ALL LEVELS)

 

  • Play by the Rules and within the spirit of the game;

 

  • Do not argue with the match official. If you disagree, have your captain or coach approach the match official during a break in play or after the match is concluded;

 

  • Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials or other players, deliberately distracting or provoking another person is not acceptable or permitted in any sport;

 

  • Maintain your focus and work hard for yourself and your team;

 

  • Be a good sport and be prepared to acknowledge good play whether it is from your team or the opposition;

 

  • Treat all players as you would like to be treated. Do not interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of another player;

 

  • Cooperate with your coach, team mates and opponents. Without them, there would be no competition;

 

  • Play for your own enjoyment, and not just to please parents and coaches;

 

  • Remove all jewellery prior to training and match play, as it is a hazard to you and those around you;

 

  • Do not accept or use any banned or unauthorised drug(s), including the consumption of alcohol at any time.
