Parley Cricket Club Code of Conduct for Parents/Guardians
The club is greatly appreciative for the contribution that parents and guardians make to Parley Cricket Club. We in turn hope that parents/guardians will undertake the following:
1. Remember that children play cricket for their own enjoyment and not yours. 2. Encourage children to participate and not to force them. 3. Focus on the efforts of each youth and their performance rather than whether they win, lose or make mistakes. 4. Encourage all youths to play cricket in accordance with the laws of the game remembering etiquette and Parley Cricket Club’s Code of Conduct for players. 5. Discourage unfair play and arguing with officials and opponents. 6. Parents/guardians must respect all officials’ decisions and encourage their children to do likewise. 7. Set a good example by encouraging fair play and applauding good performances for all players whether they represent Parley Cricket Club or not. 8. Support all efforts to remove verbal abuse and dissent from cricket. 9. Provide the club/coach/team manager/official with details of any illness, allergies or injury and any situation where medication should be taken. 10. Supervise any other family members or friends of their children and family whilst at an organised match or coaching session. 11. Support the coach or team manager in any way that they can.
