The Marion Football Club, its officials and players will lead by example and encourage young people to play Australian Rules football, build their fitness, skills and teamwork, and foster their leadership qualities.
Good sportsmanship, courage, fair play and self control will be demonstrated and strongly emphasised by coaches and players on and off the field, along with respect for the rules of the game, the umpires and the decisions that they make.
Supporters, parents and partners of players also have a responsibility to act and behave in a manner that shows respect for other people and does not bring the football club into disrepute.
We as members and supporters of the club must adhere to the rules of the Marion Football Club and the Marion Sports and Community Club, working together to promote a family orientated club and facility for all to enjoy.
Marion Football Club will take every opportunity to provide a positive, healthy environment for our young people to grow to their full potential and be able to take their rightful place within the wider communities.
Marion Football Club will NOT tolerate obscene or offensive language or behaviour, racial abuse, drunken or bullying behaviour from any of the football club’s officials, players or supporters.
We are a family friendly club and welcome all new players and their families to join us.
