Code of Conduct for Member Schools


Junior Players


As a member school of the WDPSSA, your players are expected to abide by the following junior players code of conduct:


  • Play is for the fun of it, not just to please parents or coaches.


  • Play by the rules.


  • Never argue with the referee’s decisions.


  • Control your temper.


  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of gender, ability, cultural background or religion.


  • Work equally hard for yourself and your team, thus your team’s performance will benefit and so will your own.


  • Be a good sport.  Applaud all good play, whether by your team or by your opponent.


  • Treat all players as you would like to be treated.  Don’t interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of any players.


  • Remember that the goals of the game are to have fun, improve your skills and feel good.


  • Don’t be a show off.


  • Co-operate with coaches, team-mates and opponents; without them you don’t have a game.


  • One more thing, cherish sport for what it is – FUN!  No more, no less.
