Caythorpe Cricket Club
Junior Players Code of Conduct
We expect children and young people to:-
- Encourage each other.
- Promote a positive experience and not criticise.
- Remember that cricket is a team game, everybody in the team is important.
- Respect the dignity and worth of everybody – team mates, opponents, coaches, officials and parents.
- Try hard to win but win with humility and lose with good grace.
- Accept the decisions of captains, coaches and umpires.
- Listen to advice and instructions from coaches.
- Not demean opponents and especially not “sledge” opponents.
Children do make mistakes. Most mistakes will be minor and can be “nipped in the bud”. In the event of a more serious issue, the club has a disciplinary policy which would be applied.
Caythorpe Cricket Club is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our children so they can train and play in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at our club. If bullying does occur, all children should be able to tell and know, incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. We are a TELLING club. This means anyone who knows bullying is happening is expected to tell someone who can do something about it.
Bullying is the use of aggression or neglect that will result in the hurting of another person. Bullying results in pain or distress to the victim. Bullying may be physical, emotional, racist, sexual, homophobic, verbal, cyber, other. Any bullying hurts and no one should be a victim of bullying. Everybody has a right to be treated with respect. Caythorpe Cricket Club will not tolerate any form of bullying and will respond promptly and effectively to any reported issues. Reports of bullying will be treated seriously.
If anybody is aware of any possible bullying issue, this should be reported to a coach, Head of Junior Cricket or the child Welfare Officer. Any reports of bullying will be investigated and may result in discipline procedures being applied.
