Code Of Conduct



P. O. Box 2503, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, KY1-1104

 

CIFFA PLAYER/COACH CODE OF CONDUCT

 

Players and Coaches are the most important people in the sport of Flag football. Playing for enjoyment as a member of a team is the most fundamental part of the game. Whilst winning is the objective, it is not to be achieved at any cost. Fair play and respect for all others in the game is essential.

 

This Code focuses on players and coaches involved in any CIFFA league.

 

  1. Play flag-football to enjoy yourself, and accept that striving to win is more important than winning itself. Victory and defeat are inevitable, and should be accepted equally.

 

  1. Understand and abide by the laws, rules and spirit of the game.

The above mentioned are only examples of incidents, all actions will be reviewed by the disciplinary committee and they will issue appropriate fines and suspensions.

These are guidelines; each incident is reviewed by the disciplinary committee where fines and suspensions are issued.
