                                 ENDORSES THE

      AFL PARENTS CODE OF CONDUCT
Today’s parents have an important role in the delivery and support of sporting
activities for their own and other children. With it comes a clear responsibility to act in
a constructive and encouraging manner at all times.

Barracking and wanting your child to perform well is human nature, but it is critical that
this should be done in a responsible manner avoiding the ugly parent syndrome at all
times.

This year Edgewater / Woodvale Junior Football Club will implement the AFL’s
“Parents code of conduct”. Each time a parent is found to be in breach of the parent’s
code of conduct from the Disciplinary Committee, they will receive a warning from the
club and a two week suspension from attending their children’s games. If a parent
accumulates 3 warnings over any period of time whist their child plays for our club, the
club may at its discretion, cancel your membership and reimbursed the fees on a pro
rata basis.

                           CODE OF CONDUCT
EDGEWATER / WOODVALE JUNIOR FOOTBALL CLUB AND THE AFL ASK
PARENTS TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING CODE OF CONDUCT:
 1.  Remember that children play sport for their enjoyment, not yours
 2.  Encourage children to participate - do not force participation upon them

 4.  Encourage children to always participate according to the rules.

     game.
 6. Remember that children learn best by example –applaud the efforts of all in both
     teams.
 7. Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities
 8. Show appreciation of volunteer coaches, officials and administrators without
     whom your child could not participate
 9. Respect umpires decisions and teach children to do likewise
