The Code of Conduct is designed to provide all participants with some simple rules concerning the standards of behaviour that are expected.
Participants include players, parents, spectators, coaches, referees and officials.
Every participant should:
* Discourage all instances of unsportsmanlike behaviour, foul or illegal play, or acts of violence and verbal abuse both on and off the field.
* Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability/disability, sexual orientation, cultural background or religion.
* Condemn the use of recreational and performance enhancing drugs; their use endangers the health of players and is contrary to the concept of fair play.
It is a requirement that everyone connected with Junior Rugby adopts this Code so that players, coaches, officials, parents and spectators can attend games secure in the knowledge that it will be a safe and enjoyable experience.
