To all Clubs
The Board has with a number of clubs have for some time been concerned about occasional poor spectator and player behaviour.
This is particularly important when conduct not becoming being a good sport applies toward umpires
We have resolved to adopt similar to other sports a “Marshall” bylaw whereby every match each team will have an adult wearing high vis vest or jacket.
It is crucial that we protect our own so that the game can be enjoyed by everyone.
We are confident taking this action will enhance the experience of all participants and spectators
Please ensure that this is communicated to all at your club and a roster and or plan for your clubs participation is enabled.
The draft policy is available on the web here: http://www.haw.net.au/Information/Rules-Policies and feedback is welcome.
HAW will provide the first set of high vis vests – two for each of the grounds that we play on.
In Albury and Wodonga they will be kept in the canteen. For the away grounds, the club who owns the ground will be given two to look after.
