3. Parents/Guardians/Spectators Code of Behaviour

3.1 CA is committed to promoting and protecting the safety and wellbeing of children and young people who are involved in the Program. Therefore, CA requires that all parents, guardians and other spectators comply with the following code of behaviour:

  1. Do not force an unwilling child to participate in cricket;
  2. Remember, children are involved in cricket for their enjoyment, not yours;
  3. Encourage your child to play by the rules;
  4. Focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing;
  5. Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a game;
  6. Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances and skillful play by all participants;
  7. Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities;
  8. Respect officials’ decisions and teach children to do likewise;
  9. Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials and administrators. Without them, your child could not participate; and
  10. Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

4. Player Code of Behaviour

4.1 By registering a child in the Program you agree that the child understands and will adhere to the following code of behaviour:

  1. Play by the rules;
  2. 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;
  3. Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials and sledging other players, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable or permitted behaviours in cricket;
  4. Work equally hard for yourself and your teammates. Your team’s performance will benefit and so will you;
  5. Be a good sport. Applaud all good plays whether they are made by your team or the opposition;
  6. Treat all participants in cricket as you like to be treated. Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another competitor;
  7. Cooperate with your coach, teammates and opponents. Without them there would be no competition;
  8. Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please parents, teachers or coaches;
  9. Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

5. Limitation of Liability and Release

5.1 You understand that there are inherent risks associated with participation in the Program, which may result in personal injury (even of a serious nature) to a child and that you fully accept and agree to bear those risks.

5.2 You agree not to bring any claim, demand, action or proceeding against CA (which shall include its directors, employees, agents and volunteers) for any damage, loss or injury whatsoever that you or a child may suffer from participation in the Program.

5.3 CA’s liability to you (including that of its directors, employees, agents and volunteers) is limited (at CA’s election) to CA repaying any amounts paid by you under these Terms and Conditions to CA or supplying or resupplying any Program services to which you are entitled in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.

5.4 You acknowledge there is an unquantifiable risk of transmission of viral illness including COVID-19 associated with participation in the Program and you have considered that risk and your and your child’s personal circumstances, including any vulnerability that your child may have or that of persons whom your child will be in close contact with following your child’s participation in the Program. You acknowledge that, for a small number of people, COVID-19 has very serious health consequences. By your child participating in the Program you acknowledge and accept these risks.

6. Cancellation and Refunds and Termination

6.2 CA may, in its absolute discretion, change a Program or part of a Program, including dates, session times, durations and locations.

6.3 Once you have registered a child in and paid for the Program, a refund will only be provided to you in accordance with this clause.

6.6. CA may provide refunds where a Participant is no longer able to attend the Program as follows:

  1. if the Participant notifies CA at least seven (7) days before the Program start date, they will receive a refund in full;

  3. if the Participant pulls out once the Program has commenced, CA will not provide any refund.

6.7 In the circumstance where a sports voucher is used, you must seek a refund via the relevant government agency, sports club or State association, as no refund will be given by CA in respect of any portion of the Fee paid for using a voucher.

6.8. Where a refund is requested because you forgot to use a sports voucher, fees will not be refunded and you will not be entitled to any other refund or compensation from CA.
