Puhoi Sports Club Statement of Conduct

Welcome to the Puhoi Sports Club. We are a community and family focused club. All teams strive to win, and we believe in competition, but the club’s philosophy is that all registered junior and youth players receive equal game time and are treated equally, irrespective of ability.

We operate a zero tolerance side-line behaviour policy and advise all parents that the club does not condone any form of abuse of referees or players. We encourage you to be vocal and to cheer your child on but would ask you to refrain from coaching on the side-lines. This can interfere with the player’s decision-making development and may contradict what they have been asked to do by their coach.

We look forward to your support and hope you have a great season.


Please spend a couple of minutes reading the information below. Our Code of Conduct is for your comfort and safety and to ensure you enjoy your visit to Puhoi Sports Club.
