2. Parental Guidelines

As a club we try to actively recognise the Duty of Care Guidelines published by All England Netball Association. A copy of the Duty of Care Guidelines can be obtained from the Club's Executive Committee on request, and is provided as a matter of course to all Officers of the Club.
  • Encourage children to participate for their enjoyment - do not force them.
  • Support your child's involvement and help them to enjoy their sport
  • Encourage children to learn the rules and to play within them.
  • Focus on the child's efforts and performance rather than on winning or losing.
  • Never punish or belittle a child for making a mistake or losing a game.
  • Encourage children to show good sporting spirit by applauding the good performances of all.
  • Respect Officials' decisions and teach children to do the same.
  • Discourage unfair play
  • Use correct and proper language at all times.
