Basic Principles




Show respect to get respect - respect yourself & respect others. Treat people as you would like to be treated



Nothing happens without committment. Be committed to your club, your team mates, your family & friends and be committed to your performance on the field and behaviour 'off the field'.



Communication is absolutely essential if you are to maintain healthy relationships, more adequately deal with issues of concern or problems you may have and the capacity to 'sort out' your problems.



Honesty is positive; dishonesty is negative - the end results of dishonesty are 'mistrust & suspicion', 'anger & bitterness', 'social alienation' and 'general negativity'. Be honest with yourself & others. Honesty is the basis in the formulation of TRUST.



We all have responsibilities; don't shirk these. Everyone else suffers and you will have to bear the consequences of their frustrations. These responsibilities encompass all aspects of life. They apply to your role as a player, representative of your club, partner or spouse, father, son, member of society.



Nothing in life comes without effort - Effort & Dedication.









These principles apply to your role as a participant in a 'team' sport. If they apply on the football field, then they apply to life. Take the same principles you employ on the field into your everyday existence. When you work as a team, using these principles, you have a better chance of acheiving your goals & ensuring a better quality of life.
