Rugby League Club RESPECT Policy
Peterlee Pumas Rugby League Club acknowledges its responsibility in line with the principles of RESPECT.
All participants in the game of Rugby League including players, parents, spectators, coaches, match officials, volunteers and administrators should:
§ Discourage all instances of unsporting behaviour, foul or illegal play, or acts of violence, both on and off the field.
§ Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their age, ethnic origin, gender, special needs, including learning and physical disabilities, class or social background, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, colour or political persuasion.
§ Condemn the use of recreational and performance- enhancing drugs and doping practices; their use endangers the health of players and is contrary to the concept of fair play.
§ Every person who attends a Rugby League match does so with the permission and license of the home club &/or league. Breaches of this Code of Conduct may result in penalties up to and including a fine, loss of team match points and suspension.
