We have a great sport that we all love, either as a Player, Coach, Manager, Technical Official or Administrator. We want to be seen as an elite sport, and it is important we act in manner acceptable to family and friends, work colleagues or to the general public. We must be seen as an example of an elite sport to encourage parents to support their children to play the game and strive for ongoing improvement through the development pathways.
We must encourage involvement and embrace diversity. It makes the sport richer and stronger and increases the level of participation and improves the overall standard.
