The implementation of the warning system in 2010 was a success and we will keep it going The system is as follows 

  • Verbal Warning – athletes will be warned verbally about their behaviour and this will be recorded.
  • Yellow Card – this will indicate the need for a second warning. Further incidents may lead to exclusion from an event. This will also be recorded by the Age Manager.
  • Red Card – this will result in the athlete being asked to leave the event and return to the parent(s). The Age Manager will report this to the Club President who will then consult with the parents about the possibility of the athlete returning for subsequent events for that night.

It is hoped that this system again runs smoothly and we expect the parents to make sure that their children are on their best behaviour at all times

As of 7 January 2013, changes by the NSW Government to legislation on smoke-free outdoor areas came into effect across NSW.

These changes are a key strategy in reducing community exposure to second-hand smoke, tobacco-related harm and the uptake of smoking.

The smoke-free areas were chosen as they are public outdoor places popular with children and families, or which can be crowded, or at which there is limited opportunity to avoid second-hand smoke.

Smoking is now banned in the following outdoor places:

· Within 10 metres of children’s play equipment in outdoor public spaces;

· Spectator areas at sports grounds or other recreational areas;

· Swimming pool complexes;

· Railway platforms, light rail stops, light rail stations, bus stops, taxi ranks and ferry wharves;

· Within four metres of a pedestrian access point to a public building.

A penalty notice (Penalty: $110.00) upon any person who fails to comply with the terms of any such notice.
