Fair Enough

Fair Enough

As public concern grows over the increase in verbal violence in the sport and recreation sector, the Office for Recreation and Sport (ORS) is working with State Sporting Organisations on a project to promote respect to all officials both on and off the field.

The Fair Enough campaign initially commenced with the development of a trial video in conjunction with the SA Cricket Association to promote respect for the umpire.

The second phase of the project has seen it expand with ORS now working with six State Sporting Organisations - South Australian National Football League (SANFL), Football Federation of South Australia (FFSA), Netball SA, Baseball SA, Basketball SA and Hockey SA - to produce a series of videos along with a five minute educational program to support the program.

It is anticipted that the videos will be rolled out during 2013.

The Fair Enough campaign follows the successful Coloured Shirt Program (CSP) which encourages supportive and positive player and spectator behaviour towards new and trainee officials by making them recognisable in a green shirt.

Commenced in 2006, the CSP initiative has now grown to involve 22 sports across the State and is now a well established process to identifiy trainee officials.
