PERSONAL CONDUCT POLICY
In order to maintain our “Standard of Excellence”, the Executive Committee of the Women’s National Football Conference (WNFC) has voted to institute a league-wide code of conduct. It is a privilege to be part of the WNFC. All parties associated with the league must refrain from conduct detrimental to the moral compass, integrity of, and public confidence in the WNFC. This includes, but is not limited to players, coaches, staff, volunteers, interns and WNFC personnel.
We take pride in this league and what we stand for. We strive to be a premiere league of high character, sportsmanship, quality competition and respect for others on and off the field. “Conduct by anyone in the league that is illegal, violent, dangerous, or irresponsible puts innocent victims at risk, damages the reputation of others in the game, and undercuts public respect and support for the WNFC.” This type of behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. As a league, we will take fair and swift actions against violators. As members of the WNFC, we will govern ourselves accordingly and behave in ways that favorably reflect on our families, our teams, our market cities, our partners, our sponsors, and the WNFC.
The WNFC will provide resources to increase awareness, knowledge and understanding of acceptable behavior and the standard of excellence expected by the league. It is our goal to “prevent violations of the Personal Conduct Policy. In order to uphold our high standards, when violations of this Personal Conduct Policy do occur, appropriate disciplinary action must follow.”
This Personal Conduct Policy is issued pursuant to the Commissioner’s authority under the Constitution and Bylaws of the WNFC. It applies to every rostered player in the WNFC; all acquired players from other teams/leagues, all players after signing day, international players, and other prospective players in negotiations with a WNFC team.
