Athletes Code of Behaviour

This policy was introduced to set out acceptable behavior during the New Zealand Masters Games. All participants and supporters are expected to abide by this policy.

  1. I agree to play by the rules set out by tournament organisers for my Sport, and follow the rules as demonstrated by officials.
  2. I will promote excellent sportsmanship and fair play, both on and off the field.
  3. I understand that negative, racist, sexist, swearing, or derogatory comments are not acceptable, and these comments will not be tolerated.
  4. I agree to display graciousness in victory and defeat.
  5. I will not play while intoxicated, or under the influence of classified substances.

I understand that breaching any of the terms of this policy may result in the cancellation of my accreditation, and removal from the Games.
