Values Definitions: 

Accountability – Accountability is a cornerstone to successful rugby. We believe the obligations as individual players, teammates and the Club to account for its activities, accept responsibility for them, and to disclose the results in a transparent manner.

Community – We believe in the sense of community in rugby and the Westshore.  Members have a sense of belonging, a feeling that members matter to one another and to the group, and a shared faith that members’ needs will be met through their commitment to be together. The Westshore is our home; we are welcoming to all and supportive of involvement in the greater Westshore & Rugby communities.

Discipline – Strong discipline underpins our sport.  We ensure that our sport is one of controlled physical endeavor and that we are honest and fair. We obey the laws of the game which ensure an inclusive and exciting global game. We support our disciplinary system, which protects our sport and upholds its values. We observe the sport’s laws and regulations and report serious breaches.

Enjoyment – Enjoyment is the reason we play and support Rugby.  We encourage players to enjoy training and playing. We use our sport to adopt a healthy lifestyle and build life skills. We safeguard our young players and help them have fun. We enjoy being part of a team and part of the Rugby family.

Respect – Mutual respect forms the basis of our sport. We hold in high esteem our sport, its values and traditions and earn the respect of others in the way we behave. We respect our match officials and accept our decisions. We respect opposition players and supporters. We value our coaches and those who run our clubs and treat clubhouses with consideration.

Sportsmanship – Sportsmanship is the foundation upon which Rugby built.  We uphold the Rugby tradition of camaraderie with teammates and opposition. We observe fair play both on and off the pitch and are generous in victory and dignified in defeat. We play to win but not at all costs and recognize both endeavor and achievement. We ensure that the wellbeing and development of individual players is central to all Rugby activity

Teamwork – Teamwork is essential to our sport.  We welcome all new team members and include all because working as a team enriches our lives. We play selflessly: working for the team, not for ourselves alone, both on and off the field. We take pride in our team, rely on one another and understand that each player has a part to play. We speak out if our team or sport is threatened by inappropriate words or action.
