Keep it [+]

Mainland Football and the CSSL would like to present you the Keep it Positive campaign.

  • We all love the game of football. Players, coaches, parents, spectators and officials all want and deserve a positive experience each time they take the field. Sadly Mainland Football currently deal with far too many misconduct reports, incident reports and general complaints. To ensure football maintains a high level of integrity we must ensure that everyone involved plays their part.  Players, coaches, parents, spectators and officials each have a responsibility and duty of care to act appropriately and collectively to enhance our local football community.
  • With this campaign we would like to make everyone aware that:
    • We all need to understand what behaviours are acceptable and unacceptable, on and off the field.
    • We all have a role to play in keeping it positive on and off the field.
    • We all want to decrease the number of incidents of abuse and assaults on and off the field and retain our beautiful game.
    • We all deserve a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone to play in.
