At the heart of the Fair Play Code (FPC) are five principles of Integrity, Respect, Responsibility, Safety and Fairness. These principles apply to everyone involved in orienteering in Victoria, no matter what role they play. Bad behaviour, violence, cheating and intimidation has no place in our sport.
