Code of Conduct for Club Officials and Volunteers

The essence of good ethical conduct and practice is summarised below.

 All volunteers must:

  • Consider the well-being and safety of participants before the development of performance.
  • Develop an appropriate working relationship with participants, based on mutual trust and respect.
  • Make sure all activities are appropriate to the age, ability and experience of those taking part. 
  • Promote the positive aspects of the sport (e.g. fair play).
  • Display consistently high standards of behaviour and appearance.
  • Follow all guidelines laid down by Bowls England and the Club.
  • Hold appropriate valid qualifications and insurance cover.
  • Never exert undue influence over performers to obtain personal benefit or reward.
  • Never condone rule violations, rough play or the use of prohibited substances.
  • Encourage and guide participants to accept responsibility for their own performance and behaviour.
  • Encourage participants to value their performances and not just results.
