I agree as the parent of my STJFC Auskick, Female, Junior or Youth member to abide by the AFL's Parent Code of Conduct. I will remember that children play sport for their enjoyment, not yours. I will encourage children to participate - I will not force participation upon them. I will focus on the child's efforts and self-esteem rather than whether they win or lose. I will encourage children to always participate according to the rules. I will never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or for the team losing the game. I will remember that children learn best by example - applaud the efforts of all players in both teams. I will support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities. I will endeavour to show appreciation of volunteer coaches, officials and administrators, without whom your child could not participate. I will respect umpires' decisions and teach children to do otherwise.
