A Friendly Reminder


The Warrnambool & District Football Netball League is a proud and family friendly league that seeks to ensure all supporters enjoy the football and netball in a friendly and safe environment.

It’s disappointing that we are only heading into Round 4 and the league has received several reports from clubs about the disrespectful behaviour of spectators and players.   Whilst barracking and supporting the players is a part of the game, offensive language and behaviour is not and won’t be tolerated.

The WDFNL considers inappropriate:

-Racial taunts

-Threatening behaviour

-Offensive language, gestures or behaviour towards other patrons and players

-Any form of abuse, physical or verbal

-Any form of discrimination or harassment

Under the Members Protection Policy any person/s who do not obey this code of conduct, and depending on the severity of the behaviour, may be asked to leave the venue.  Suspension of membership may occur, if an investigation is conducted by the league following the incident.

Please go and enjoy the game of football and netball and be considerate of others in a manner that does not harm the reputation of your club or the league.

Kylie Murphy

WDFNL President.
