Auskick Hong Kong is committed to promoting and protecting the safety and well-being of all the children and young people that participate in Auskick activities, and we ask all participants, parents and volunteers to to adhere to the following Player Code of Behaviour and Parent & Spectator code of conduct to ensure the safety of our kids comes first.

We adopt our player code of behaviour from the AFL Auskick Terms and Conditions of Participation, which are outlined here: AFL Terms and Conditions of Participation
1. Play within the spirit of the game and by the rules of the competition.
2. Never argue with an official. If you have an issue, have your coach approach the official during a break or after the competition.
3. Verbal abuse of officials or other players, and deliberate distraction or provocation of an opponent are not permitted.
4. Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another competitor.
5. Cooperate with your coach, teammates and opponents.
6. Show respect to all players regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
Parents & Spectators Code of Conduct
We adopt guidance from the AFL KidsFirst program, including the “Parents/Carers and Spectators Code of Conduct” as well as other key elements of Club and Incident management, which are outlined here: AFL Kids First
