Code of Conduct

Little Athletics NSW believes that young people involved in sport have a right to participate in a safe and supportive environment. Over-zealous parents and adults, and ill-tempered, disrespectful athletes, sometimes need to be reminded of appropriate standards of behaviour for Little Athletics.

The Code provides everyone with a guide as to what is expected of them.

Please ensure you are familiar with, supportive of and compliant with our Codes of Conduct
