Principles of the Code

The Code is designed to enable sport and recreation organisations to aspire to and maintain good governance.  It is a tool to help boards perform their role by outlining seven simple principles in the following areas:
   1. Integrity: Acting as guardians of the sport, recreation, activity or area
   2. Defining and evaluating the role of the board
   3. Delivery of vision, mission and purpose
   4. Objectivity: Balanced, inclusive and skilled board
   5. Standards, systems and controls
   6. Accountability and transparency
   7. Understanding and engaging with the sporting landscape
Each principle is accompanied with practical considerations and thinking points.
