Code of Conduct
All of our players are expected to adhere to the college’s Code of Conduct and this is a message that will be pushed by all coaches and managers.
Supporters are a big contributor to the success of our winter season. Scots College supporters have always been superb; often setting the standard for other supporters.
We encourage everyone to have a read of our Code of Conduct and look forward to seeing and hearing everyone on the side-line this term.
