Remember that young people play rugby for their enjoyment, not that of their parents.
Encourage young people to play, do not force them.
Focus on the players efforts rather than on winning or losing.
Encourage young players to play by the rules of the game.
Be realistic about a young player's ability. Don't push them towards a level that they are not capable of achieving.
Remember that persistent, negative messages will adversely affect the player's performance and attitude.
Always support the club in their efforts to eradicate coarse and abusive behavior from the game.
Remember that young people learn by example.
Show appreciation of good play by ALL young players, both from your own club and the opposition.
Respect decisions made by the match officials and encourage the young players to do likewise.
Recognize the importance of coaches and volunteers. They give up their time so that young people can enjoy the sport. Support them in any way you can.
Try to go into the club after training and games to socialize; it helps cross the border between young and old.
Training is important, try to ensure attendance is punctual and the coaching staff are informed of any absences.
