PLEASE NOTE, TRL has a ZERO TOLERANCE policy when it comes to acts of violence. TRL takes such incidents extremely seriously. Any child, parent, guardian or spectator involved in any violent act will be banned from TRL. The ban will in most cases, be for life and only if there are extenuating circumstances, will that person be allowed to return. TRL will also escalate such incidents to the police where required.
B: Role of the Parent/Guardian
- Parents/guardians are responsible for their children and associated spectators’ conduct both on and off the field.
- The parent/guardian must make sure they have registered their child and that the child is of suitable age and health to be participating.
- Parents/guardians must be present at all times (or have a suitable replacement – e.g. OSHC Worker) whilst TRL training sessions and games are taking place.
- All parents/guardians must assist TRL representatives in identifying players that have breached the Code of Conduct.
- To be insured, a child must be registered.
- All parents/guardians are encouraged to seek medical advice for their children before playing to ensure they are fit and capable of playing TRL.
- All registered children agree to be covered by the Sports Personal Accident Insurance Policy (Arthur J. Gallagher) as arranged by TRL through TRL Pty Ltd. [Policy details are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org]
- For a child (parent/guardian) to make an insurance claim, they must report the incident to the coach/referee on the day/night of the injury. A failure to do so voids a player’s right to claim through the TRL Insurance Policy.

I accept that in such instances, TRL will make best endeavours to make up these games in a double round; or on another night (and potentially at another location). I also accept that TRL may need to change the specific field/location/venue of the Competition I have registered for if the fields are no longer suitable or become unavailable. In such instances, TRL will use best endeavours to ensure the new venue location is within reasonable distance of the original playing venue.
