JUNIOR PLAYER CODE OF BEHAVIOUR
In addition to the General Code of Behaviour set out in this By-law, as a player in any activity held by or under the auspices of a Community Cricket Peak Body, a Region or an Affiliated Club and Association you must meet the following requirements in regard to your conduct during any such activity or event:
- Play by the rules and within the
Spirit of Cricket.
- Never argue with an umpire. If you
disagree, have your captain, coach or manager approach the umpire during a
break or after the game.
- Control your temper. Verbal abuse of
officials and sledging other players, deliberately distracting or provoking an
opponent are not acceptable or permitted behaviours in Cricket.
- Work equally hard for yourself and
your teammates. Your team’s performance will benefit and so will you.
- Be a good sport. Applaud all good
plays whether they are made by your team or the opposition.
- Treat all participants in Cricket as
you like to be treated. Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another
- Cooperate with your coach, teammates
and opponents. Without them there would be no competition.
- Participate for your own enjoyment and
benefit, not just to please parents and coaches.
- Respect the rights,
dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability,
cultural background or religion.
- Participate because you enjoy it, not
just to please parents and coaches.
- Participate fairly and safely.

sporting performance (alcohol, tobacco and drug use.)
- Respect and acknowledge the
contribution of those who create the opportunity for you to play.
