The Lanivet Pandas Netball Club has adopted a set of Mandatory and Enforceable Codes of Conduct for all players, coaches, parents and spectators to ensure that they behave and promote the best possible environment.

All players, coaches and officials, parents, supporters and committee members have a responsibility at all times when representing the Lanivet Pandas Netball Club to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner consistent with these values and those outlined in the following codes of conduct and to respect the office of Chair.

The Code of Conduct includes Lanivet Pandas Netball Club, training sessions, games and events. And any person wearing Lanivet Pandas Netball Club garments and uniforms in public and any persons speaking publicly on behalf of the club.


• Play by the rules – the rules of The Lanivet Pandas Netball Club and the England Netball laws.

• Never argue with an umpire or other official – without these people you can’t play netball.

• Lanivet Pandas Netball Club is based on friendship so play kindly and encourage your fellow players.

• Control your temper-verbal abuse of officials - sledging other players doesn’t help you enjoy/win games.

• Be a team player – it’s a team game, treat it that way. Treat all players as you would like to be treated.

• Co-operate with your coach, umpires and team-mates.

• Play for enjoyment and to improve your skills.

• Don’t use ugly remarks based on race, religion, gender or ability – or you’ll let everyone down.
