Remember that children play organised sports for fun. They are not playing for the entertainment of spectators only, nor are they miniature professionals.
Applaud good performances and efforts from each team. Congratulate all participants upon their performance regardless of the games outcome.
Respect the official’s decisions. If there is a disagreement, follow the appropriate procedure in order to question the decision and teach the children to do likewise.
Never ridicule or scold a child for making a mistake during a competition. Positive comments are motivational.
Condemn the use of violence in any form, be it by spectators, coaches, officials or players.
Show respect for your teams opponents. Without them there would be no game.
Encourage players to follow the rules and the official’s decisions.
Demonstrate appropriate social behaviour by not using foul language, harassing players, coaches or officials.
Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
Avoid the use of derogatory language based on gender.
