IT’S THE COMPETING THAT MAKES IT FUN FOR THE KIDS NOT THE ACTUAL RESULT.

It’s the result that adults think is important - and therein lies the problem!


At our club, spectators should:

  • Act as positive role models to all young players.

  • Be familiar with, and abide by, the RFU child protection guidance in relation to verbal and emotional abuse.

  • Respect the club policy with regard to spectator behaviour.

  • Acknowledge good individual and team performance from all youngsters irrespective of which team they play for.

  • Respect match official's decisions. Remember, they are volunteers providing an opportunity for youngsters to play rugby.

  • Never verbally abuse young players, match officials, fellow spectators or coaches. Such behaviour can create a negative environment for young players and their behaviour will often reflect this.

  • Acknowledge effort and good performance rather than the "win at all costs" ethic.

  • Verbally encourage all youngsters in a positive way. If you do want to shout make sure it is 'for', not 'at', the players.

  • Condemn bad language, rude behaviour and violence.

  • Encourage all youngsters irrespective of their ability – never ridicule any individual player, regardless of the team they play for.


Remember children play sport for their enjoyment not yours.

IT'S ONLY A GAME - LET THEM HAVE FUN!
