WCA Tour & Games Guidelines
Any violation of below guidelines will result in player being dropped from tour or subsequent game and repeat violation will result in termination of membership.
- Be role models for your child and maintain the highest standards of conduct when interacting with children, other parents, with officials and organizers
- Always behave responsibly and not seek to affect unfairly the game / player
- Never intentionally expose any young participant to embarrassment or disparagement by the use of flippant or sarcastic remarks. Players should never be yelled at, lectured or ridiculed for making mistakes or losing a game by parents or coaches.
- Always recognize the value and importance of the volunteers who provide sporting opportunities for your child. Do not question publicly the judgment or honesty of umpires, managers, selectors or coaches. Respect umpires, coaches, organizers and other players
- Encourage the child to play by the rules. Teach the child that honest endeavor is as important as winning and encourage good sportsmanship
- Do not criticize any child’s performance from the sidelines. Don't be a sideline coach giving instruction on how to play in a situation.
- Set a good example by applauding good play on both sides. Encourage mutual respect for teammates and opponents
- Ensure that the child is punctual for games reporting at least 60 minutes before start time.
- Ensure that the child is properly attired for the weather conditions of the time. No one including parents / guardian & coaches should encourage players not wearing protective gears. It’s better to be safe than showing unnecessary bravery.
- Having, as much proper rest and sleep as possible are essential factors in maximizing performance on the cricket field. Players sleep no later than 9 p.m. on the day prior to a game.
