Code of Conduct

The image and reputation of the Seaford Tigers Cricket Club is vital to the ongoing success of the club in the Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association. The Code of Conduct has been adopted for all club committee members, players, junior players, life members, social members, junior parents and spectators to adhere too. 

This document provides all members involved with Seaford Tigers Cricket Club with a set guideline of behavioural standards when representing the club in all capacities. The guidelines form the player’s code of conduct as set out by Cricket Victoria. The Code of Conduct will be enforced by the Committee of the Seaford Tigers Cricket Club. Breaches of the Code of Conduct will result in penalties as determined by the Executive Committee of the Seaford Tigers Cricket Club. 

The Executive Committee will hear all cases of breaches and determine a suitable penalty ranging from a warning, suspension or expulsion from the Seaford Tigers Cricket Club. Our purpose is to ensure all members represent the Seaford Tigers Cricket Club in a respectable manner on and off the cricket field. 

The environment of the Seaford Tigers Cricket Club should be enjoyable for all members, opposing players, umpires and guests.


  • Players have a responsibility to uphold the integrity of the game whilst they are training, competing on the playing field or representing our club away from the field of play.
  • Play by the rules
  • Never argue with an umpire. If you disagree, have your captain, coach or manager approach the umpire in an appropriate manner during a break or after the game
  • Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials and sledging other players, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable or permitted behaviors in cricket
  • Work equally hard for yourself and your teammates. Your team’s performance will benefit and so will you
  • Be a good sport. Applaud all good plays whether they are made by your team or the opposition
  • Treat all participants in cricket as you like to be treated. Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another competitor
  • Cooperate with your coach, teammates and opponents. Without them there would be no competition
  • Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please parents, teachers or coaches
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion


  • Some of the greatest role models we have in our cricketing community are our parents. When assisting and supporting at our club’s games please keep in mind the codes of behavior listed below:
  • Do not force an unwilling child to participate in cricket
  • Remember, children are involved in cricket for their enjoyment, not yours
  • Encourage your child to play by the rules
  • Focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing
  • Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a game
  • Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances and skillful play by all participants
  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities
  • Respect officials’ decisions and teach children to do likewise
  • Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials and administrators. Without them, your child could not participate
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion
