Member Code of Conduct 

Eastern Raiders Softball club endorses Softball Australia’s Player Code of Conduct along with the following specific behaviours: 

  • Treat officials with respect.  This includes umpires, coaches and scorers.  Accept the decisions that are made by those officials regardless of your interpretation of the rule or the decision. 

  • Treat your own team mates and players of competing teams with respect. 

  • Notify your coach of any injury or illness before taking the diamond or commencing training. 

  • Refrain from the use of abusive or offensive language including sledging.

  • Be mindful of how your actions affect the safety, well-being and comfort of those around you, including other players, spectators and officials. 

  • Always encourage other team mates by giving positive feedback in a fair and respectful manner. 

  • Honour commitments that you have made to your team and coach. Attend to your umpiring or other club duties.  It remains your responsibility to ensure that the duty is fulfilled. 

  • Provide coach or team manager sufficient warning if you are unable to play a game or attend training so that other arrangements can be made, ensuring the teams avoid forfeit and other players are not inconvenienced. 

  • Arrive at training and at games on time and ready to train, warm up or play as determined by your team’s officials. 

  • Help other players and coaches to set up and pack up the equipment, including diamonds. 

  • Wear your full uniform (e.g. correct hat, socks, shorts and shirt) with pride. 

  • For Juniors, sun smart policy applies in all softball activities (training and games) – covered shoulders and full cap. No visors. 

  • Pay your fees on time or as arranged with the Treasurer. 

  • Make all members feel welcome, particularly new players and their families. 

  • Enhance the skill level, safety and enjoyment of players by offering assistance if and where required and with the input or consent of the coach.
