While we are in the early stages of our winter sports season of netball and soccer, I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank the coordinators of these two sports for their excellent work in organising their respective sports programs. This has involved processing registrations, attending delegates meetings with coordinators from other schools, establishing and sorting out teams, appointing and liaising with coaches and managers, communicating with parents and students via email / phone calls.
A big thank you to Barbara Heaton (Soccer), Erica Hancock and Tamara Armstrong (Netball) for their tireless efforts in supporting Craigburn school sport.
Codes Of Behaviour
We remind all players and parents of our Codes of Behaviour, which provide the basis for fair play for young people and encourage fun, friendships and play, in safe environments. Please take time to read through these with your child and take note of code for parents and spectators.
For the Player:
- Be punctual, both when arriving and leaving.
- Keep equipment neat and tidy and pack it away at the end of practice and matches.
- Play fairly and safely.
- Play by the rules.
- Co-operate with your Coach, team mates and opponents.
- Complete the full season of your chosen sport/s.
- Abide by decisions, without argument or bad temper.
- Encourage your team mates.
- Applaud all good play, by your team mates and opponents.
- Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please your parents and coaches.
For the Parents/Spectators:
- Remember that children participate in sport for their enjoyment, as well as yours.
- Focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing.
- Encourage children always to play according to the rules.
- Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances and skilful play by your team and by opponents.
- Respect officials’ decisions and teach your child to do likewise.
- Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials and administrators. Without them your child could not participate.
- Be punctual, both when arriving and leaving with your child.
- A parent or guardian leaving a child at a sports event (practice or game) must inform the coach or manager and negotiate pick up arrangements.
