|Rules & Code of Conduct|

Dundrum Cricket Club Junior Section aims to provide a safe and welcoming environment where members can learn and improve through positive and enjoyable experiences. All players have the right to be safe while participating in cricket, be treated fairly, equally and with respect, be protected from abuse, bullying and intimidation, be listened to and to enjoy the sport in a supportive atmosphere.
To achieve this aim, all players (and, to the extent relevant, parents) are expected to abide by the Rules and Code of Conduct.
1. Players will conduct themselves, at all times and whether on or off the field, in a manner that preserves the safety and wellbeing of themselves and others. Players that engage in unsafe conduct putting themselves and/or others at risk will be warned in the first instance. If unsafe conduct persists, the player will be excluded from activities pending review by the Junior Committee.
2. Players are expected to listen to all instructions and directions from their coaches and to respect and comply with their decisions. Also, players are expected to respect and abide by all decisions of the Junior Committee and its members. Coaches and committee members volunteer their time to help players enjoy the sport and improve their skills; without them, there would be no Junior Section at the club.
3. Players are required to show respect and always act in a sportsmanlike manner to all friends, teammates, umpires and opponents. Without them, there would be no matches. In short, players are expected to treat all other persons as they themselves would like to be treated.
4. Players will accept the decisions of umpires and coaches either during matches or in training. Players will control their tempers and channel their aggression legally within the laws of the game.
5. At all times, players will act within the laws and the spirit of the game. They will acknowledge and applaud good play where possible, both of their own team and of opponents. Players are expected to be gracious in defeat and in victory.
6. Ideally, players will be supportive, loyal and offer assistance, encouragement and comfort to teammates. All players will make mistakes as they strive to improve and it is important to maintain an atmosphere where all players are not afraid to try and/or to fail.
7. While on club premises, at any club event or when representing the club, players will not:
8. Players will take proper care of all club-owned equipment and facilities made available for their use.
9. Players will act appropriately to maintain the condition of the square. Many hours of hard work are volunteered to ensure that the square is available for the use and enjoyment of all throughout the season. Accordingly, players will not be present on the square unless participating in a match or a training session that involves its use. Players will never be on the square in footwear that could cause damage to it and will not bring kit bags or other items onto the square at any time.
10. Players are required to wear suitable attire for training sessions and for matches. This includes wearing protective gear (pads, gloves, helmet, etc.) when appropriate.
11. Players are expected to arrive promptly for training and matches and to inform coaches if they are going to be late or unavailable. Those taking part in training sessions are expected to stay to the end and assist in tidying away equipment.
12. Players are expected to work hard for themselves and for their teammates. The aim of taking part is to safely enjoy playing the game and improve skills and fitness; not just to win and please parents and coaches.
Any Junior Member who fails to abide by the Rules & Code of Conduct will be warned (and offered guidance) in the first instance. Any Junior Member who disrupts a training session may be excluded from that session at the discretion of the coach. Persistent failure / disruption may result in the Junior Member being excluded from club activities pending a meeting of the Junior Committee to discuss the situation. Parents will be informed of all actions taken and the reasons for them.
Junior Members (and their parents) have the right to appeal to the Junior Committee in respect of any such matter. Appeals should be addressed to Jeff Maguire or Rodney Hassard. Further appeal to the club Main Committee is available if required.
