As a coach, you bear the responsibility for players and parents during both training sessions and games. Below is a set of expectations that coaches are expected to uphold:

Respect for Officials:
- Display professional behaviour towards all officials at all times, adhering to the Code of Conduct.
- Mentor and motivate players to show respect to officials during and after games.
- Encourage parents to support players only and to refrain from making offensive comments towards officials. Such behavior will not be tolerated for any reason.
Reporting Behavioural Issues:

Respect for All:
- Treat all players, parents, and officials with respect and expect the same from players, parents, and officials.
- Handle all Corpus equipment properly and report any missing or damaged items to the Coach’s Coordinator (Stephan Wattelet at 0409 696 253).
