to be with our friends and to make new friends.
We promise to try our best to improve our skills,
to help our team-mates and to obey the rules of the game.
We enjoy having older people watch us play.
We ask that they applaud rather than criticise our efforts
and the efforts of our opponents.
Remember that we are learning a game that should give us a lifetime of enjoyment.
We may have to risk making mistakes in order to learn,
please give us that chance.
We thank the referee for giving time to take charge of the game.
We promise to respect the referee's decisions.
We ask the older people to do the same.
We promise to respect our opponents.
We shake hands before and after the game.
