Athlete’s Code of Behaviour

Athletes participating at our club events and representing our club are expected to adhere to the Athletes Code of Behaviour

The following is an extract from the ACT Little Athletics By-laws.

  • Play by the rules
  • Never argue with or abuse an official
  • Do not deliberately distract or provoke an opponent – this is not acceptable in our sport
  • Work equally hard for yourself and your Centre/Club. Your Centre/Club will only benefit from your efforts
  • Show good sportsmanship – applaud all good results whether they be from your Centre/Club, opponent, or from another Centre/Club
  • Show respect to coaches and officials
  • Recognise the value and importance of volunteer officials and/or coaches, as they give their time, resources and knowledge to provide an enjoyable and safe environment for you, and deserve your support
  • Treat all fellow athletes as you would like to be treated – do not interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of another athlete
  • Co-operate with your coach, Centre or Club mates and other participants in our sport – without them there would be no competition
  • Participate in Little Athletics for your enjoyment – not just to please your parents, relatives or your coach
  • Avoid using bad language
