The essence of good ethical conduct and practice is summarised below.
All volunteers MUST:
⦁ Consider the well being and safety of participants before the development of performance.
⦁ Develop an appropriate working relationship with participants, based on mutual trust and respect.
⦁ Make sure all activities are appropriate to the age, ability and experience of those taking part.
⦁ Promote the positive aspects of the sport (e.g fair play ).
⦁ Display consistently high standards of behaviour and appearance.
⦁ Follow all guidelines laid down by the national governing body and the club.
⦁ Hold appropriate valid qualifications and insurance cover.
⦁ Never exert undue influence over performers to obtain personal benefit or reward.
⦁ Never condone rule violations, rough play or the use of prohibited substances.
⦁ Encourage participants to value their performances and not just results.
⦁ Encourage and guide participants to accept responsibility for their own performance and behaviour.
