I Will:

  • Encourage my child to participate in Netball only if they are interested. I realise that that my child should by involved in organised activity for their enjoyment, not mine.
  • Focus on my child’s efforts and performance rather that the overall outcome of a game.
  • Teach my child that an honest effort is as important as victory.
  • Encourage my child to always play according to the rules.
  • Never ridicule or yell at any child for making a mistake or losing a game.
  • If I disagree with a Coaching decision, I will raise the issue through the appropriate channels rather that question the coach’s judgement and honesty in public.
  • Be a model of good sportsmanship for children to copy.
  • Support all efforts to remove physical and verbal abuse.
  • Support the use of age appropriate development activities and modified rules.
  • Be courteous in communication with administrators, coaches, players and umpires and teach children to do likewise.
  • Recognise and respect the value and importance of volunteer administrators, coaches and umpires. They give up their time and resources to provide recreational activities for players and deserve my support.
