|Subject: RE: Marshalls policy
To all clubs,
We now have our Marshalls vests. A big thanks to “Mr Sparkie” who has sponsored the vests for us.
As of this week the Marshalls will be in use. Please remember to organise a person for each game that your club is participating in.
The vests will be with:
Albury – at the canteen
Wodonga – at the canteen (or hanging in the umpires dugout)
Corowa – with United
Wangaratta – with Wangaratta
Beechworth – with Beechworth
Please ensure that when the game is finished that they immediately go back to where they came from for the next team to use.
Remember that the Marshals must:
· be 18 years of age or older;
· wear clothing that readily identifies them as a Marshall;
· walk around the field used throughout the match and ensure they are clearly visible to Spectators, and are in an appropriate spot for monitoring off-field incidents and behaviour;
· the Marshall must, if it is safe to do so, remind spectators of their obligation comply with the HAW Code of Behaviour and issue any reasonable direction
· If any spectator fails to comply with the Marshalls reasonable directions, the Marshal should contact their Club for further assistance. If required the Club official representative is to contact the police or relevant emergency services for support;
· not engage in any verbal or physical altercations;
· not consume alcohol or smoke while acting as a Marshall;
· not, unless it is safe to do so, approach opposition Spectators behaving inappropriately and must instead approach the opposition Marshall to resolve any issues.
