*Discourage all instances of unsporting behaviour, foul or illegal play, or acts of violence, both on and off the field.

*Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their age, ethnic origin, gender, special needs, including learning and physical disabilities, class or social background, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, colour or political persuasion.

*Accept the moral and legal responsibility to implement procedures to provide a duty of care for children, safeguard their well-being and protect them from abuse and poor practice.

*Breaches of this Code of Conduct may result in penalties up to and including a fine, loss of team match points and suspension.
