Coach/Managers code

As team manager you, by your action has and conduct, set the example for your players, parents, and spectators. Set a good example at all times.

Read the players, spectators and parents code, and understand what is being asked of all of your sport. Actively promote the codes.

You are responsible for the players’ health, welfare, and safety, particularly the very young players, during the period they are under your control, from the arrival of the first child, to the collection of the last child to arrive.

Ensure that each player is correctly dressed with the necessary safety equipment, shin pads, etc., before being allowed to play. Remember that a referee can send a player off if they are not dressed correctly-see the laws of the game.

Get treatment for an injured player immediately. There are no exceptions.

Never, either, physically, or mentally, pushes children beyond their abilities. The game is a minor consideration when compared to the Childs’s future health and well-being.

Never condone unacceptable behaviour by doing nothing. To do so, can be seen as encouragement to the guilty, and leave it for the next manager to rectify.

Always be prompt, courteous, and correct when dealing with the league officials, opposition managers, referees, and linesmen. Confirm venues, times, etc., as early as possible, and, at reasonable times during the day.

Read, understand, and, be aware of your responsibilities as laid down in your league handbook. Remember, and remind all concerned, that bad behaviour is punishable by the league, with heavy fines and /or suspension of the club.
