Player Disciplne & Behaviour

  • Give maximum effort and strive for the best possible performance during a game, even if his team is in a position where the desired result has already been achieved.
  • Any player whose conduct falls short of the required standard of good sportsmanship and fair play at all times will be withdrawn from the match or training session whatever the circumstances and will be subject to further disciplinary action to be determined by his manager. Swearing, Spitting or Fighting will not be tolerated at any time.
  • Players must accept success and failure, victory and defeat, equally.
  • Treat opponents with due respect at all times, irrespective of the result of the game.
