Code of Conduct | Scots College

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.

Code of Conduct

All members of sports teams of Scots College must:

  • Co-operate with teammates, coaches, officials and opponents and treat all of them with respect.
  • Strive for excellence, have fun, and develop skills.
  • Know the rules of the game and play by both the letter and the spirit of the rules.
  • Realise that officials are there to interpret the rules and accept their decisions with dignity.
  • Never behave in such a manner that would reflect badly on, or disgrace the team, and/or the College.
  • Never use coarse language or insult opponents, coaches or spectators.
  • Be in attendance at the required times – attendance is essential unless a prior arrangement has been made with the coach.
  • Always participate according to the values of good sportsmanship.
  • Always wear the correct College, practice and playing uniform.
  • Show modesty in victory and grace in defeat.
  • The key to a successful team is communication; if you are unable to attend a training or game you must let your coach know with sufficient notice.
