  the opposition school by 9am.
2.4 Match Manager is to make the final decision on cancellation after consulting umpires and
  coaches of both teams.
 
3. Team Officials
 
3.1  A match will not commence until field umpires:
  3.1.a have met personally with the Coach of each team.
  3.1.b  have met personally with the Captain of each team.
  3.1.c  have agreed with each coach the location on the ground where the coach, team
   officials, interchange players and timekeepers will stand or be located during the
   conduct of the match.
3.2  Schools are responsible for providing the following officials:
  3.2.a  A coach.
   3.2.b Central, boundary and goal umpires.
  3.2.c     A runner, who must be dressed in a fluoro or white top. The runner may not be an
    interchange player. The preference is for a senior student or a member of staff.
  3.2.d     A team manager.
  3.2.e     A trainer, identifiable as such, with a minimum Level 2 First Aid Qualification needs   to be arranged between the two participating schools.
 
4. Duties of the Match Manager
 
4.1  Carry out a safety check of facilities and ensure that ground is in suitable playing condition
4.2 Present umpires with an up to date match program including players and coaches.

  penalties. A coach should approach the Match Manager if there are any concerns regarding

   report the issue with the opposition coach and it will be assumed that the coach receiving
  this report will take action.
 
6.2 Coaches should meet prior to the game.
  Coaches of opposing teams should meet at the half time break to discuss any concerns
  PRIOR to addressing their teams. Should they feel it necessary, they may approach the
  Match Manager to convey their thoughts who will then pass this on to the umpires. If
  coaches feel more time is needed for the break following their discussion, they should seek
  approval of this from the umpires via the Match Manager.
 
7. Spectators
 
7.1  The field umpires are entitled to seek the support of a team’s manager should the umpires
  be subject to abuse by that team’s supporters and spectators, which is vulgar, offensive or
  insulting to the umpire and not in keeping with the accepted conventions of schoolboy
  football. In such circumstances, the umpire may halt the game and inform the coach of the
  reasons for his concern.

  situation brought to his attention by an umpire, by whatever means he judges appropriate,

  closer than 2 meters to a boundary line.
7.4  The Match Manager is deemed responsible for the proper conduct of parents, coaches and
  players participating in each game under their control. Both team managers and coaches
  must be aware of the importance of their demeanour in supporting the Match Manager in
