Player Code of Conduct:
Nunawading CC complies with the Cricket Australia Code of Behaviour.
A summary of the key points is as follows:
• Play by the rules.
• Never argue with an umpire. If you disagree, have your captain, coach or manager approach the official during a break or after the game.
• Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials and sledging other players, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent is not acceptable or permitted in any sport. Do not show you are unhappy when given out.
• Be a good sport. Applaud all good plays whether they are made by your team, an opponent or the other team.
• Treat all participants in cricket as you like to be treated. Do not interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of another player.
• Cooperate with your coach, teammates and opponents. Without them there would be no competition.
• Place in proper perspective the isolated incidents of unsporting behaviour rather than make such incidents the ‘highlight’ of the event.
• All talk must stop when the bowler reaches his bowling mark.
• Bad language (swearing) is not permitted.
• Once a batter is dismissed, members of the fielding team are not permitted to give the batter a ‘send off’.
• Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please parents and coaches.
• Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
Good Sports Club:
We are a Good Sports Level 3 accredited club.
Sporting clubs such as ours play a significant role in the community and have a responsibility to our members and their families. We have chosen to join over 6,500 clubs across Australia taking part in the Australian Drug Foundation’s Good Sports program. Through Good Sports we are committed to managing alcohol responsibly and ensuring smoke free areas, which we believe will help us to provide a healthy, safe and family friendly environment.
Through Good Sports we aim to:
Eliminate risky drinking in the club through the promotion of a responsible approach to the sale and consumption of alcohol in the club
Protect juniors and other young people from the misuse of alcohol in and around the club
Provide a responsible smoke-free club environment, through designated smoking areas
At Level 3, we are committed to:
- Not selling or consuming alcohol without an appropriate liquor license
- Training our bar staff in Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA)
- Ensuring smoke free areas are available
- Organising safe and responsible social events and finding alternate prizes/fundraiser, rather than alcohol
- Thinking ahead and ensuring players and members get home safely after functions
- Formalising and implementing our club’s alcohol management policy
Responsible Serving of Alcohol:
In February 2015, Nunawading CC obtained a full club liquor license. Responsibilities of members and guests in ensuring the club adheres to the conditions of the license include, but are not limited to, the following key areas:
1. Alcohol sold at the bar is not to be taken beyond the red line (the balcony)
2. Liquor not purchased at the bar is not allowed on the premises
3. Selling of take away liquor is prohibited
4. Opening hours will be no longer than:
a. Sunday 12 noon till 8 pm
b. Tuesday-Thursday, 6 pm till 10 pm
c. Friday 7 pm till midnight
d. Saturday 12 noon till midnight
e. Last drinks shall be called 30 minutes before the bar is closed and no alcohol may be consumed on the premises after this ‘grace period’
5. A key condition of the license will not cause harm to the amenity of our local area. The main ways we can ensure we comply with this is to always arrive and leave the premises quietly and to never have the noise (e.g. music) at a level where it can be heard by our neighbours
6. A booth license may operate on special events (e.g. 20/20, finals). A maximum of 4 opened drinks shall be provided per transaction. Alcohol purchased at a booth may not be taken into the clubrooms (see point 1)
7. Club members are expected to sign in guests (e.g. wives, friends etc)
8. Children are allowed on the premises if under the supervision of a responsible adult
9. The club will be in breach of our license and subject to heavy fines if we:
a. Sell liquor to intoxicated persons
b. Sell liquor to drunk persons
c. Sell liquor to anyone under 18
