QRL POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT PROGRAM
Enforces the existing National Code of Conduct
What is the Program – A fully aligned statewide program that empowers volunteers to proactively tackle behaviour issues and create a positive environment at Community Rugby League games.
Why do we need it? – We need this program to prevent poor behaviour and violence before it escalates and continue to allow our game to be promoted as a safe, positive and inclusive sport. Anyone attending matches needs to be aware that if they behave poorly, the team on the field may have their game abandoned, lose competition points or be removed from the competition and the individual may be excluded from attending TJRL games and events for some time.
Full details of this program can be found at:
