Thank you.

The Catholic Quadrangular permission form needs to be returned to the school office by Monday at the latest.  No form means you cannot attend the tournament.

Sports Code of Conduct
Parents and supporters are reminded about our Sports Code of Conduct when on the sideline of a game.

For anyone standing on the sideline of any game, please remember .....
  • The players are kids
  • The referees are human
  • The coaches are volunteers
  • Spectators are supporters of the players, referees and coaches
St Joseph's Code of Conduct for Parents, Spectators and Supporters:

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

       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.
