Terms And Conditions

When representing Hautapu School while playing sports, I agree too:
  • Always play by the rules.
  • Display self control at all times ie/ never argue with an umpire / referee. If I disagree with a decision made I am to inform the coach or manager or official during  a break or at the end of a game so the necessary action can be taken.
  • Work equally hard for myself and my team.
  • Play fair at all times and display good sportsmanship.
  • Treat all players in my sport as I like to be treated. I will not bully or take unfair advantage of another competitor.
  • Cooperate and show respect to my coach, teammates and opponents.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all people involved in the game regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background.
  • Always attend training sessions unless there is a reasonable excuse: regular non attendance may result in limited game time
  • Arrive at games with the correct gear ie/ shin pads, mouth guards and make sure I am dressed appropriately for the sport (in my Hautapu School Uniform)
  • Thank the opposition and officials, including coaches and managers at the end of the game.
As a parent / caregiver of a player representing Hautapu School I will adhere to the following:
  • Not pressure my child in any way – I know that this is their game not mine and it is about having FUN!
  • Encourage my child to play within the rules and respect officials’ and coaches’ decisions.
  • Ensure my child is at the game on time for the warm up and team talk and will communicate with the manager if unable to do so.
  • Remember that children learn best by example, so I will applaud good plays/performances by both my child’s team and their opponents.
  • Give positive comments that motivate and encourage continued effort and never ridicule or shout at players.
  • Support my child’s efforts and performance and the performance of all other participants.
  • Show appreciation to those people who volunteer their time so my child can play sports and respect their decisions.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all people involved in the game, regardless of their gender, ability or cultural background.
  • Understand the coach is not responsible for my child/ren. If I can not be at a practise or a game, I will make sure the coach is aware and put the necessary transport plans in place.
  • Report any inappropriate behaviour at sporting events to coaches and Sports Coordinator.
  • Arrive at practises and games without being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Ensure all sport charges are paid; where cases of financial hardship exist, the Teacher in charge of Sport or the Principal should be approached
