Member Code of Conduct
Privateers 1882 welcomes all fans of good will, regardless of race, age, gender, creed or sexual orientation. As such, disrespect towards any persons, be they our fellow Wanderers supporters, supporters of other clubs, or members of the general public, is completely unacceptable. We will not tolerate racism, discrimination, sexism, and/or bigotry of any kind in either words or actions.
We understand that as a recognized Supporters Group, our actions will reflect not only on us individually and Privateers 1882 as a whole, but the club we support and city we represent. We will always strive to be good ambassadors for our club and community.
Prohibited behaviour includes (but is not limited to):
Throwing any objects onto the field of play during a match;
Leading, participating, and/or encouraging in inappropriate chants;
Any physical harm or threats of physical harm to others; and
Slurs, derogatory language, and other disrespectful and/or hateful speech, whether in person or online
We are responsible for policing our own behaviour and that of everyone associated with Privateers. If you see individuals acting in way that violates our code of conduct, please don’t participate in or encourage it. Let a Privateers officer know, and we will investigate as appropriate. Everyone will be held accountable for his or her individual actions.
Any Privateers member who is found to have violated this code of conduct will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including total and immediate loss of membership without refund, and Privateers 1882 reserves the right to take any such action as deemed appropriate at the discretion of the Board of Directors.
We hope that no such action need never be taken, and we trust that all members will comport themselves with respect for themselves and others as we cheer our club on to victory.
