Play friendly and fairly at all our leagues.

This Code of Conduct aims to set out the minimum standards for anyone involved in our leagues. When playing at an Adelaide Dodgeball League or Event the Code of Conduct applies to all its players, staff and supporters.

At Adelaide Dodgeball we expect our players to:

  1. Read and understand the rules before playing competition-level leagues.

  2. Act within the rules and spirit of the sport.

  3. Promote fair play over winning at any cost.

  4. Be honest with any hits on their own person and team and be able to call themselves out - irrespective of whether anyone observed the hit or not.

  5. Approach Match Officials between rounds with any complaints or observations, or use their allocated ‘Time Out’ in an appropriate manner.

  6. Approach the Managers if there are any complaints regarding their Match Official either between halves or after their game.

  7. Not ‘self-ref’ - if you believe an important call was made incorrectly you may use your ‘Time-out’ time to discuss this with your Match Official and opposing Captain.

  8. Respect the decisions of Match Officials and Managers.

  9. Respect and courtesy to all involved with the sport.

  10. Respect the rights and worth of every person, regardless of their age, race, gender, body, ability, cultural background, sexuality or religion.

  11. Display appropriate and responsible behaviour in all interactions.

  12. Act with integrity and objectivity, and accept responsibility for your decisions and actions.

  13. Ensure your decisions and actions contribute to a safe environment.

  14. Ensure your decisions and actions contribute to a harassment-free environment.

  15. Not demonstrate or tolerate abusive, bullying or threatening behaviour.

  16. Be aware of your own and other people's abilities and experience levels and use common sense.

Headshots are a part and parcel of the game of Dodgeball. However, it is deemed unsportsmanlike to intentionally aim for the face/head on a repetitive basis or within close range. Throwers: It is common courtesy to apologise loudly and clearly and in extreme cases run over and check if they are okay. Check in with them again when you shake hands at the end of the game to keep good faith. Penalties do apply if you are found aiming at the head with malicious intent.

Any person found to be acting with misconduct may be ejected or temporarily banned from our leagues as decided by the Managers.
