The best way to keep up to date with Amersham & Chiltern Rugby


Best behaviour at A&C - IMPORTANT MESSAGE

11 months ago By Tony Coyle

The New Year has started - a good time to remind people about what makes rugby such a great game.

We had a few incidents last year regarding this area and wanted to remind you why it is increasingly important that we keep to Rugby’s values of Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship (TREDS). These are what make our game special for those who enjoy the environment and culture they create. They define the game and define England Rugby.
Professional players very rarely give referees ‘backchat’ and towards the end of last year James Davies from Scarlets was suspended for three weeks and issued a grovelling apology to a referee for swearing. Let’s make sure we instill a culture at Amersham & Chiltern which we all would expect and be proud of from playing/watching rugby at Weedon Lane.
Please can I ask all players, coaches, spectators, parents and guests to take on board TREDS and if parents could explain the importance of these values to their child. Could we remember that all coaches and referees are volunteers, they are doing their best and are human beings. When watching or playing, please ensure you keep to these values.
Here is the link to our Code of Conduct for Parents and Spectators which highlights acceptable and non-acceptable behaviour. Could we ask you to please take time to read this as there are some important points around entering the pitch and setting examples.

Another link to our Code of Conduct for Youth Players highlights acceptable and non-acceptable behaviour. Could we ask you to please take time to read this and then discuss with your children as there are some important points around discipline and sportsmanship.
If there is any concern regarding the behaviour of an individual, please could you speak with any of us and we will then take the necessary steps to address the issue.
Finally, here is the link to TREDS which explains in more detail what it is about.
Many thanks,
Mike Stevens, A&C Chairman
David Choules, Director of Rugby 
Hugh Griffiths, Chairman of Junior Rugby
Scott Jarrold, Chairman of Mini Rugby
