Junior Player Code of Behaviour
In addition to the General Code of Behaviour, 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 competitor.
- Cooperate with your coach, teammates and opponents. Without them there would be no competition.
