Code of Conduct

Who does it apply too?

This Code applies to all Participants involved with the Game and at Vikings Juniors, including:

  • Members, including life members – Parents, guardians, and spectators

  • Coaches and assistant coaches

  • Managers, First-Aiders and other Volunteers

  • Players

  • Referees and other officials

The Code is designed

  • To return the elements of enjoyment and satisfaction to ACT Junior Rugby Union (ACTJRU)

  • To make adults aware that young people play sport to satisfy themselves and not necessarily to satisfy adults or members of their own peer group;

  • To improve the physical fitness of youth by making participation in rugby attractive, safe and enjoyable for all young people;

  • To constantly remind administrators, coaches, referees and parents that rugby must be administered, taught and provided for the good of those young people who wish to play the game – it’s their game!

Players Code…

  • Play for your enjoyment, not just to please your parents or coach.

  • Play the laws of the game of ACTJRU and Rugby Australia.

  • Never argue with the referee’s decisions. Let your captain ask any necessary questions.

  • Control your temper – no mouthing off

  • Work equally hard for yourself, your coach and for your team – your team’s performance will benefit and so will your own.

  • Be a good sport applaud ALL good play, whether by your team or your opponent.

  • Treat all players as you yourself would like to be treated. Don’t interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of any player.

  • Remember, the goal is to have fun, improve your skills and feel good.

  • Don’t be a show-off. Be humble.

  • Co-operate with your coach, teammates, referee and opponents, for without them you wouldn’t have a game.
