Every competitive team coach has been selected based on their suitability for your team, and they have a clear code of expectation for their role and how the Nayland sports office supports them.​​​​​​​

  • In return for their commitment, as a Nayland College competitive team member we expect the following from you: 
  • Be at all trainings on time, ready to train from the start.
  • Be at your game at the time specified by your coach
  • If for whatever reason you are unable to attend trainings, a game, or will be late to either you need to contact your coach directly as soon as possible
  • Respect the decisions of your coach. If you have a concern or issues, speak directly to your coach in a calm and respectful manner. 
  • Understand that while every opportunity will be taken to give players equal game time, that you are in a competitive Nayland side and playing decisions will be made based on the overall good of the team.
  • Understand that you might not always get to play in the position you want.
  • Remembering that you have made this team based on attitude, ability, adaptability, commitment, athleticism and willpower – one is not more important than the other.
  • Take responsibility for being the best player you can be. Do not do yourself the disfavour of judging yourself against others. All players are not equal, and each has his/her own growth curve in sport, as in anything else. Attitude is the "mother" of skill. Judge if you are giving your fullest with the skills you have today. And ask yourself today if you are improved over yesterday.
  • We expect you to take responsibility for your actions and your attitudes. Your circumstances do not create your state of mind; rather, your state of mind creates your circumstances. You make choices. You get results. If the results are not acceptable to you, examine and change your choices.

Please read your player code of conduct carefully and use at as a guideline over the course of the season.

We wish you all the very best for your season of sport here at Nayland College.
