                                   IRFU CODE OF CONDUCT
Code of conduct for parents

   o   Remember, young people play rugby for their enjoyment, not only yours.
   o   Encourage your child always to play by the Laws of the Game.
   o   Teach young children that honest endeavour is as important as winning, so that the result of each game is
       accepted without disappointment.
   o   Help young people to work towards skill improvement and good sportsmanship.
   o   Set a good example by applauding good play on both sides.
   o   Never ridicule, humiliate or shout at young players for making a mistake or losing a match. Encourage
       them through recognising the positive aspects of their play.
   o   Do not place emphasis on winning at all costs.
   o   Do not force an unwilling child to participate in the playing of rugby. If the child is to play, he/she will do so
       in good time through your encouragement.
   o   Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from rugby.
   o   As a spectator, do not use profane language or harass referees, coaches or players.
   o   Do not publicly question the referees’ judgement and never their honesty.
   o   Recognise the value and importance of volunteer referees and coaches. They give of their time and
       resources to provide recreational activities for your young children.
   o   Identify and acknowledge the good qualities of the Game of Rugby and uphold these values.
   o   Encourage in your child an appreciation of mutual respect for team mates and opponents.

Code of conduct for spectators

   o   Remember that although young people play organised rugby they are not ”miniature internationals”
   o   The rules of Mini Rugby differ from those governing the full fifteen aside game. Referees are encouraged
       to promote the flow of a game rather that penalise every infringement. Please accept and encourage this
   o   Do not publicly question the referees’ judgement and never their honesty.
   o   Be on your best behaviour and lead by example. Do not use profane language or harass referees, players
       or coaches.
   o   Applaud good play by the visiting team as well as your own.
   o   Never ridicule, humiliate or shout at young players for making a mistake or losing a match.
   o   Show respect for your team’s opponents. Without them there would not be a match.
   o   Condemn the use of violence in all forms at every opportunity.
   o   Verbal abuse of players or referees cannot be accepted in any shape of form.
   o   Players or referees are not fair targets for ignorant behaviour.
   o   Encourage young players to play by the Laws of the Game.
   o   Spectators can contribute to the enjoyment of the event and all involved.

Code of conduct for players

   o   Play for enjoyment, not just to please your parents or coach.
   o   Play by the Laws of the game of Rugby.
   o   Never argue with the referee’s decision. Let your captain or coach ask any relevant questions.
   o   Play with control. Do not lose your temper.
   o   Play for yourself and your team – your team’s performance will benefit and so will your own.
   o   Be a “good sport”. Applaud all good play whether by your team or the opposition.
   o   Respect your opponent. Treat all players as you would like to be treated. Do not “bully” or take advantage
       of any player.
   o   Rugby is a team sport - co-operate with your coach, team mates and opponents.
   o   Remember that the goals of the game are to have fun, improve your skills and feel good.
   o   At the end of the match always thank and applaud your opponents and the referee. NEVER jeer, mock or
       heckle the opposition or the referee.
   o   Always remember that you owe a duty of care to your opponents. Tackle hard but fairly, do not intend to
       hurt your opponent.
   o   Winning and losing is part of sport: Win with humility – lose with dignity.
   o   As a team sport it is important to understand that all members are important to the team!
