  • Encourage your child to learn the laws of the game and to play within the spirit of those laws
  • Discourage unfair play and arguing with officials, coaches and umpire
  • Help your child to recognise good performance, not just result
  • Set a good example by recognising fair play and applauding good performances of all
  • Publicly accept officials' judgments

  • Listen to the advice being given to your child and back-up that advice whenever possible

  • Use correct and proper language at all times
  • Make sure you explain net etiquette to your child if you are in the nets with them outside training times
