Code of Behaviour

Introduction
Our society expects high standards of behaviour from all people involved in sport and it is vital these expectations are met and the integrity of sport maintained.  Regardless of the nature of a person’s involvement in sport, The Essence of Australian Sport provides four guiding principles that lead to appropriate behaviour: Fairness, Respect, Responsibility and Safety. The following Code of Behaviour has been developed to reflect and uphold these principles and assist in retaining the integrity and enjoyable aspects of sport.
