Our game is Fair PLAY

The NTJSA will not tolerate inappropriate behaviour from officials and/or spectators and would like everyone to be aware that there will be consequences of their actions.

  • Remember that your people participate in sports for their enjoyment and benefit, not yours.
  • Applaud good performances and efforts from all individuals and teams.
  • Congratulate all participants on their performance, regardless of the game’s outcome.
  • Respect the decision of officials and teach young people to do the same.
  • Never ridicule or scold a young player for making a mistake. Positive comments are motivational.
  • Condemn the use of violence in any form, whether it is by spectators, coaches, officials or players.
  • Show respect for your team’s opponent. Without them, there would be no game.
  • Encourage players to follow the rules and official’s decisions.
  • Do not use foul language, sledge or harass players, coaches or other officials.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
