CODE OF CONDUCT

STL LOGO .png

The club operates on the basis of voluntary effort - this is most obvious in the case of team mentors/coaches. All mentors/coaches, juvenile members and their parents/ guardians are expected to abide by the code of conduct set out below. We also ask for adherence to standards of behaviour which reflect a positive image of the club, and which are consistent with our emphasis on enjoyment and personal development.

For EVERYONE (Players, mentors, parents, spectators)

No abusive language or behaviour towards any of the following:

  • St. Laurences players (your own team mates, children and friends)

  • Opposition players

  • Spectators or coaches

  • Referees

Place yourself particularly in the shoes of a child who is the recipient of bad

language, aggressive threats or correction, taunting about aspects of his / her

physique. This is unacceptable and unfair.

  • Ensure children have the proper equipment

  • Ensure that pick-up arrangements are clear and that pick ups are punctual

For the Players

  • Co-operate with the team manager / trainer. When asked to do

  • something - do it.

  • No bad language
