Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct for Juvenile Section
The club operates on the basis of voluntary effort – this is most obvious in the case of team mentors / coaches. All mentors / coaches, juvenile members and their parents / guardians are expected to abide by the code of conduct set out below.

We require adherence to standards of behaviour which reflect a positive image and which are consistent with our emphasis on enjoyment and personal development.
