All managers have read and agreed to follow these rules.

  • The manager’s first priority is to the players, it is his/her responsibility to care for his/her team.
  • If any player should get injured you will follow the correct procedures that you have learnt when passing your level 1 coaching course.
  • It is the manager’s responsibility to control themselves and have no confrontation with any players, opposition coaching staff, supporters or league officials. YOU lead by example.
