7. SPECTATOR CODE OF BEHAVIOUR As a spectator in any activity held by or under the auspices of Surfing Australia, a member association, an affiliated club or licensed surf school, you must meet the following requirements in regard to your conduct during any such activity or event: 1. Respect the decisions of officials and teach young people to do the same. 2. Never ridicule or scold a young player for making a mistake. Positive comments are motivational. 3. Condemn the use of violence in any form, whether it is by other spectators, coaches, officials or players. 4. Show respect for your team’s opponents. Without them there would be no game. 5. Do not use violence, harassment or abuse in any form (that is, do not use foul language, sledge or harass players, coaches, officials or other spectators). 6. Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion. 62 SURFING AUSTRALIA RULE BOOK
