Substances are prohibited if they fall into the prohibited classes identified in this Code. The substances described in each prohibited class are examples only. Substances which are not included as examples are prohibited if they fall within a prohibited class.
It is the responsibility of each Player to ensure that he does not use or administer prohibited substances or prohibited methods, whether or not included as examples.
The RDFNL has an obligation to maintain a safe physical and emotional environment for our affiliated clubs, the club officials, staff, registered players, umpires, coaches, club members, parents, spectators and sponsors.
This responsibility is increasingly being linked to the use of the Internet and Information & Communication Technologies (ICT), and has seen the emergence of a number of related Cybersafety issues. The Internet and ICT devices/equipment bring great benefits to all users and to the effective operation of AFL Victoria, the RDFNL and clubs.
The RDFNL places a high priority on the acceptable use of ICT devices/equipment which will benefit members however; it recognises that the presence in the sporting arena of these technologies can also facilitate anti-social, inappropriate, and even illegal behaviour and activities. RDFNL aims, therefore, to maximise the benefits of these technologies, while at the same time to minimise the dangers and manage the risks.
The RDFNL recognises that Victorian weather can throw up all kinds of challenges for community Football & Netball Clubs.
Clubs may be confronted with weather conditions that vary from extreme heat to extreme cold. The following policy has been developed to assist clubs in making a decision on the continuation of play should they be presented with an extreme weather situation.
