In 2016 AFL Sydney Juniors is introducing a new reward-based system, called Reward E Points, in an effort to promote good conduct on and off the field.

It is important to acknowledge that an appropriate response to issue management is only one part of the objective of the initiative. Beyond the management of any issues, a better and more enjoyable environment for all could reflect in a club's capacity to retain players and recruit volunteer support. Great clubs have great cultures!

Reward E Points is an approach where wins and losses are supplemented by Reward E Points that a team can accumulate for good or acceptable behaviour. It is a measurement whereby 'environmental issues' such as Yellow and Red Cards, Reports and Code of Conduct breaches may ultimately have an impact on a team's position on the ladder. It provides a reward that's available to all clubs.

Simply, four additional Reward E Points are allocated to each club for each game. These additional points can be deducted for Yellow and Red Cards, Reports and Code of Conduct breaches during the game.

  • Reward E Points apply to players, coaches, volunteers, clubs and spectators.
  • Non-allocation of Reward E Points for non-competition age group teams (ie. Under 9 & 10) will be recognised in the Club of the Year award.
  • Each participating team may incur the non allocation of a maximum of four Reward E Points per game for any bylaw breach.
  • No Yellow Card infringement appeal is permissible. AFLSJ Administration will continue to review all Yellow and Red Cards issued by umpires, understanding that umpires involved are of varying levels of experience. Where AFLSJ Administration and the Umpire Manager believe that a Yellow or Red Card was not appropriate in the circumstances, then this will be removed from the record of the team/player, and the umpire will be provided with the necessary education.
  • It is anticipated that any non-allocation of Reward E Points would normally be resolved weekly, after any Tribunals or PPO's are completed. Sometimes where delays occur in resolving matters, the weekly update on Reward E Points will be noted.
  • It is not anticipated that matters that occur in the last Home & Away match round will affect the allocation of Reward E Points
  • When Reward E Points are not awarded, a general advice of all the round points variations will be issued post-round on the AFLSJ website.
  • 'Calm Down'. Occasionally when players may become 'overheated', overexcited, angry in their behaviour, and is just short of a formal report for an errant action, they may be given a Yellow Card. In such cases, defined as a 'Calm Down', non-allocation of Reward E Points will not occur.
  • Crowd behaviour. When a field umpire believes that the behaviour of spectators is inappropriate in actions and words, at the next break he/she will advise the ground manager to address the behaviour for it to be stopped. If the behaviour does not stop after the break, or recurs later in the match, the field umpire will report such behaviour in the match report for review by the regional committee for determination of the allocation of Reward E Points
  • Where an individual is involved, at the next break the field umpire will advise the ground manager to address the behaviour for it to be stopped. If the behaviour does not stop after the break, or recurs later, the field umpire will report such behaviour in the match report, and AFLSJ Administration and the umpire manager will determine the allocation of Reward E Points.
