Middlesex Cricket - Code of Conduct for Young PeoplePathway

Download as PDF

Middlesex Cricket is committed to the development of our elite young cricketers and the realisation of their achievements.

As society, attitudes and patterns of behaviour are changing, Middlesex Cricket has made the decision to issue a Code of Conduct to its young County, Regional & Borough cricketers.

All young cricketers selected to represent Middlesex County Age Group (CAG), Regional or Borough levels will be issued with this Code of Conduct and thereby agree to fully abide by its contents.

Players are the most important people in cricket. Playing for a team to win is the fundamental aim of the game; but not to win at all cost, fair play and respect for others in the game is fundamentally important.

The principles that underpin this Code of Conduct are
• The players’ welfare is paramount.
• All players, whatever their age, ability, gender, gender expression, race, religion, belief, sexual orientation

or socio-economic background have the right to enjoy the game in an environment safe from abuse and

harm of any kind.
• All players have the right to be safe and treated with dignity and respect.

Any breach of this Code may lead to the player being warned as to their future conduct or in more serious cases being suspended or barred from participation in Middlesex Cricket activities. During festivals or tours players may be sent home for serious breaches of discipline.

Player availability

Middlesex Cricket appreciates that there can be pressure on our CAG, Regional or Borough players with regards to their availability – with commitments elsewhere (school cricket, club cricket, other sporting sides). In order to maximise the standard and performance and development of cricket and cricketers in Middlesex, and to avoid ambiguity or undue pressure on players when fixture clashes arise, the Performance department has agreed priority criteria that are to be applied to all Middlesex affiliated clubs.

The criteria are that a player should play for teams for which he or she is selected in the following order, unless agreed by Middlesex Cricket: (Player availability applies to matches and training sessions)

Country / National Region / County / County Regional / Club / School

CAG, Regional & Borough cricketers agree to:

Please promptly report any concerns about safeguarding or the protection of children, young people and/or
