5. Winter Sports Information



(applies to all sports and physical activity at St Joseph’s whether it takes place at school or outside of the school)

Code of Conduct Students:

    Make sure you attend all practices (let your coach know if you can’t attend training or a game).  NO PRACTICE NO GAME

    A high standard of behaviour is expected from all students (this includes using respectful language).  The principal will be kept informed.

    Parental permission for participation is required.

    Always play by the rules and agree with an official or their decision whatever the circumstances.

    Work hard to achieve the team goals.

    Remember to thank your coach, the official and the opposition.  Always be a good sport and applaud good play.

    Do not put people down or bully them.  The aim of the game is for everyone to have fun, participate and improve their skills.  Treat all players as you yourself would like to be treated.

    Respect the equipment and the grounds.

    Wear the correct St Joseph’s sports uniform.

Code of Conduct for Coaches and Managers:

    Set personal behaviour standards for those you coach and for yourself to follow.  Teach your players that rules of the game on the field and standards off the field are mutual agreements which are not to be broken under any circumstances.

    All players deserve equal game time if they attend practices.  This means NO PRACTICE NO GAME.

    A coach encompasses many roles.  The overall role is that players need the coach to set a good example at all times.

    Ensure all equipment and facilities meet safety standards and that activities you use are both safe and effective for your player’s needs.

    Never forget that players participate for fun and enjoyment and that winning is only one component of why they participate.

    Do not neglect planning and preparation for practices and games.  Length and content of practices should take into account the maturity level of players.

Code of Conduct for Parents, Spectators and Supporters:

    Make sure you ensure that your child is able to attend practice/trainings. This means NO PRACTICE NO GAME.

    Encourage your child to learn to play within the rules and the principles of fair play.

    Support your child’s involvement and help them to enjoy their sport.  We expect parents/caregivers to attend every game and practice when required. 

    Coaches are not responsible for the wellbeing of your child (eg if your child is injured, we expect you to be there to support them).

    There is an expectation that children will be picked up on time after a practice or a game.

    Players are involved in their chosen sport for their own interests and enjoyment.  You play a major part in their efforts but ensure that you respect that they are involved for their own personal reasons.

    Turn defeat into victory by helping your child work towards skills development and good sportsmanship.  Never ridicule, degrade or yell at any player for making a mistake.  Encourage your child to lose with grace.

    Children learn the most from the examples you set.  Always act in a positive manner and demonstrate self-discipline on the side line. Use correct and respectful language at all times.

    Always remember coaches are volunteers.  Their time and efforts are for the benefit of your child.

    Discourage unfair play and arguing with officials.

    Show your appreciation of volunteers who are giving up their own time and those who help make sport happen.  It is easy to criticise but not so easy to take up the challenge yourself.

    Always support officials and coaches by accepting their decisions and judgements.  Remember – No official, no coach – no game.
