Bay of Plenty Rugby aims to create a “Positive Rugby Environment” at all levels of the game, for all our participants whether they be a player, coach, referee, administrator or spectator. We try to strengthen the community game by the retention and attraction of players, coaches and referees and in order to do that we all must ensure that we provide a positive rugby environment for that growth to take place.

To do that we need to educate all of our stakeholders on what is and isn’t acceptable behaviour whilst participating or observing our great game. We also need to provide a method for our stakeholders to notify us of behaviour that doesn’t fit within the framework of, “Positive Rugby”.

The Poor Behaviour Form at the bottom of this page provides an easy way for anyone to make us aware of an incident that makes our rugby environment a negative place to be.
