All Players, Parents, Coaches and Managers
During the registration process, you will be asked to agree to the club’s Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct has been introduced as a formal recognition of how the Bargara Football Club expects its parents/friends/relatives, coaches, managers, team officials and players to conduct themselves at training, game day and any club functions. Bargara Football Club has a fine record of sportsmanship. However, it is appropriate that a Code of Conduct be formalised to ensure a safe, pleasant and friendly experience for the children, parents and many hard-working volunteers.
Sport plays a role in promoting physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle, in learning to face challenges and strive against the odds, in developing qualities such as self-discipline, perseverance, selflessness, obedience and building self-esteem. Parents are asked to keep in mind that playing football should primarily be for the benefit of their child or children.
Good sportsmanship is an integral part of all that is best about sport. It includes a generous spirit, true respect for others and the game, graciousness, and a steadfast resistance to temptations such as attempting to gain an unfair advantage. Good sportsmanship encapsulates much that is honourable in human behaviour and endeavour.
The Bargara Football Club aims to be an example in terms of player, volunteer and parent behaviour. All players and their support network are bound through the player’s registration to follow its expectations. All those involved in the Club, be they players, coaches, managers, other team officials or supporters are required to adhere to this Code of Conduct.
Bargara Football Club has a number of documented Codes of Conduct for all members and participants of the Club. All Club members, parents and spectators are expected to abide by these Codes:
