Aprobado en Asamblea Ordinaria de Cricket España el 23 de enero de 2010


El Consejo de Ministros del Consejo de Europa, en fecha 24 de septiembre de 1992, aprobò un Còdigo de Ética Deportiva, para que los Estados Miembros y las federaciones deportivas de los mismos lo tuvieran en consideraciòn.

Posteriormente, en el mes de octubre de 2004, los Ministros de Deporte de los Estados Miembros del Consejo de Europa aprobaron unos principios de buen gobierno, habida cuenta del importante papel del deporte dentro de la sociedad moderna y en el deseo de ser el espejo de pulcritud en que puedan mirarse los millones de jòvenes que practican deporte.

En el ámbito del deporte español, el Consejo Superior de Deportes, en fecha 18 de octubre de 2004, aprobò una Resoluciòn que lleva como anexo un "Còdigo de Buen Gobierno de las Federaciones Deportivas Españolas", siguiendo las normas anteriormente citadas.

Cricket España aprueba el Còdigo de Buen Gobierno, que regula internamente sus actividades cotidianas y permite que el mundo exterior vea còmo el cricket no solo se autorregula sino que, además, recoge todos los principios legales europeos y españoles establecidos en orden a alcanzar una transparencia y ética que, en ocasiones, se ha echado en falta por algunos estratos sociales.

La elaboraciòn de este Còdigo de Buen Gobierno ayuda a alcanzar una mayor integraciòn de la organizaciòn federativa en la sociedad, y aumentar la transparencia sobre su actuaciòn y, en particular, sobre la gestiòn del dinero pũblico que recibe.

Cricket España, en el ejercicio de las funciones que le son propias, y reconocidas en sus propios Estatutos, y con el ánimo de establecer principios y reglas orientadoras de su gestiòn, y de promover una mayor responsabilidad y eficacia en la gestiòn federativa, estima conveniente la elaboraciòn e implantaciòn de normas dirigidas a regular de forma sistemática y ordenada el gobierno federativo, y a actuar como un instrumento eficaz y necesario que contribuyan a una mayor transparencia en su gestiòn.

De esta manera, Cricket España asume el compromiso planteado mediante la redacciòn y aprobaciòn del presente Còdigo: 

Ámbito subjetivo.

El presente Còdigo será de aplicaciòn a Cricket España y podrá ser asumido y adaptado a cualquier entidad deportiva que voluntariamente desee suscribirlo en aras a alcanzar los fines pretendidos.

Ámbito objetivo.

El presente còdigo formula recomendaciones que pretenden sintetizar prácticas de buen gobierno en Cricket España, refiriéndose tanto a la gestiòn federativa como al control de las transacciones econòmicas (gastos, ingresos, inversiones) que efectũen, independientemente de que éstas estén financiadas o no con subvenciòn pũblica.

De esta manera, se ofrece una serie de medidas que, en uso de su libre autonomía y de sus facultades de autorregulaciòn, podrán adoptar en sus estatutos o reglas de funcionamiento orgánico. 

De los òrganos federativos.

La Junta Directiva y/o comisiòn delegada.

Còdigo de Ética deportiva

Cricket España asume íntegramente el cumplimiento del còdigo de ética deportiva, aprobado por el Consejo de Europa el 24 de septiembre de 1992, y que se integra en el presente documento como anexo n° 1.

Anexo 1 - Còdigo de Ética Deportiva

El contenido y las definiciones del presente còdigo de ética deportiva se aplicarán teniendo en cuenta las peculiaridades y especificaciones propias de las competiciones de las diferentes especialidades del cricket.


    El Còdigo de ética del Consejo de Europa para el "juego limpio en el deporte" es una declaraciòn de intenciones aceptada por los Ministros europeos responsables del deporte.

2  El Còdigo parte del principio de que las consideraciones éticas que subyacen en el "juego limpio" no constituyen un elemento facultativo, sino algo esencial a toda actividad deportiva, a toda política y a todo tipo de gestiòn que se realice en el campo del deporte, y de que dichas consideraciones se aplican en todos los niveles de la competencia y de compromiso con la actividad deportiva, tanto de carácter recreativo como de competiciòn.

3  El Còdigo aporta un sòlido marco ético para luchar contra las presiones ejercidas por la sociedad moderna, las cuales implican una amenaza para los fundamentos tradicionales del deporte, que se basan en el "juego limpio", en el espíritu deportivo y en el movimiento voluntario.

Objetivos del Còdigo

4  El Còdigo pretende esencialmente promover el "juego limpio" entre los niños y adolescentes que serán los deportistas adultos y las figuras de mañana del deporte. Sin embargo, el Còdigo se dirige a las personas adultas y a las instituciones que ejercen una influencia directa o indirecta en el compromiso y la participaciòn de los jòvenes en el deporte.

5  El Còdigo engloba el concepto de derecho de los niños y adolescentes a practicar un deporte y a obtener una satisfacciòn de esa práctica, y el concepto de responsabilidad de los adultos y las instituciones en su condiciòn de promotores del "juego limpio" y de garantes del respeto de ese derecho.

Definiciòn de "Juego Limpio"

6  El "juego limpio" significa mucho más que el simple respeto de las reglas: abarca los conceptos de amistad, de respeto al adversario y de espíritu deportivo. Es, más que un comportamiento, un modo de pensar. El concepto se extiende a la lucha contra las trampas, contra el arte de engañar sin vulnerar las reglas, contra el dopaje, la violencia física y verbal, la desigualdad de oportunidades, la excesiva comercializaciòn y la corrupciòn.

7  El "juego limpio" es un concepto positivo. El Còdigo considera el deporte como una actividad sociocultural que enriquece la sociedad y la amistad entre las naciones, siempre que se practique con lealtad. El deporte es considerado asimismo como una actividad que, si se ejerce con lealtad, permite a la persona conocerse, expresarse y realizarse mejor; desarrollarse, adquirir conocimientos prácticos y demostrar sus capacidades; el deporte hace posible la interacciòn social, es fuente de disfrute y aporta bienestar y salud. El deporte, con su extensa red de clubes y de aficionados, ofrece la ocasiòn de participar y de asumir responsabilidades sociales. Además, la participaciòn responsable en determinadas actividades puede coadyuvar al desarrollo de la sensibilidad respecto al medio ambiente.

Responsabilidad por el "Juego Limpio"

El Còdigo reconoce que la participaciòn de niños y adolescentes en las actividades deportivas se inserta en un entorno social más amplio. Admite que el individuo y la sociedad sòlo pueden aprovechar plenamente las ventajas potenciales del deporte si el "juego limpio" deja de ser un concepto secundario para convertirse en preocupaciòn central; reconoce que todas las personas que, de forma directa o indirecta, favorecen e influyen en la experiencia que niños y adolescentes viven en el deporte, deben conceder una prioridad absoluta a dicho concepto. Se trata, concretamente, de:

    8.1 Los gobiernos: a todos los niveles, incluidos los organismos que trabajan con los gobiernos. Los participantes en los sectores oficiales de la educaciòn poseen una responsabilidad especial.

     8.2 Las organizaciones deportivas y vinculadas con el deporte: en particular, las federaciones deportivas y los organismos dirigentes, las asociaciones de educaciòn física, los organismos e institutos vinculados al entrenamiento, las profesiones relacionadas con la medicina y la farmacia, y los medios de comunicaciòn. El sector comercial, comprendidas las actividades de producciòn, venta y marketing de artículos deportivos, debe asimismo asumir sus responsabilidades y contribuir al fomento del "juego limpio".

    8.3 Las personas: específicamente, los padres, docentes, entrenadores, árbitros, mandos, directivos, administradores, periodistas, médicos y farmacéuticos, así como los deportistas de la alta competiciòn, que sirven de modelos. El Còdigo se aplica a todas las personas, con independencia de que participen como voluntarios o en calidad de profesionales. En su condiciòn de espectadores, las personas pueden asumir responsabilidades complementarias.

Cada una de estas instituciones y personas tiene que asumir una responsabilidad y desempeñar una funciòn. Este Còdigo de ética va destinado a ellas, y solamente será eficaz si todos los actores del mundo del deporte están dispuestos a asumir las responsabilidades definidas en el mismo.

Los gobiernos asumirán las responsabilidades siguientes:

    10.1 favorecer la adopciòn de criterios éticos, rigurosos en todos los ámbitos sociales en los que el deporte está presente;

    10.2 alentar y apoyar a las personas y organizaciones que apliquen principios éticos sanos en las actividades vinculadas con el deporte;

    10.3 alentar a los profesores y monitores de educaciòn física a que concedan importancia primordial a la promociòn del deporte y al "juego limpio" en los programas escolares de formaciòn deportiva;

    10.4 apoyar cuantas iniciativas estén destinadas a promover el "juego limpio" en el deporte, en particular entre los jòvenes, y alentar a las instituciones a que concedan prioridad a este objetivo.

    10.5 alentar, en los ámbitos nacional e internacional, la investigaciòn destinada a mejorar la comprensiòn de los complejos problemas que afectan a la práctica del deporte juvenil, y a valorar el alcance de los comportamientos indeseables y las oportunidades de promover el "juego limpio".

Las organizaciones deportivas y vinculadas al deporte asumirán las responsabilidades siguientes:

Marco y contexto del "juego limpio":

    11.1 facilitar directivas claras en las que se definan los comportamientos conformes o contrarios a la ética, y procurar que se implante un sistema de estímulos y sanciones coherentes y ajustadas en todas las modalidades y niveles de la participaciòn.

    11.2 procurar que todas las decisiones se ajusten a un còdigo ético aplicable a su disciplina deportiva e inspirado en el Còdigo europeo.

    11.3 sensibilizar a la opiniòn dentro de su esfera de influencia respecto al concepto de "juego limpio", mediante campañas, recompensas, material didáctico y ofertas de formaciòn. Estas organizaciones deben, asimismo, supervisar estrechamente la marcha de estas actividades y evaluar sus efectos.

    11.4 implantar sistemas que, además del éxito en la competiciòn, recompensen el "juego limpio" y el desarrollo personal.

    11.5 prestar apoyo y ayuda a los periodistas que fomente la "buena conducta".

El trabajo con los jòvenes:

    11.6 velar por que las estructuras participativas prevean las necesidades específicas de los adolescentes y de los niños en crecimiento, permitiendo la participaciòn en diversos niveles, desde la actividad recreativa hasta la alta competiciòn.

    11.7 apoyar la modificaciòn de los reglamentos con objeto de atender las necesidades específicas de los jòvenes, poniendo de relieve no sòlo el éxito competitivo, sino también el "juego limpio".

    11.8 velar por la implantaciòn de garantías con objeto de impedir la explotaciòn de los menores, en particular de los que muestren aptitudes precoces.

    11.9 procurar que todos los miembros o afiliados a una organizaciòn que asuman responsabilidades respecto a los jòvenes y adolescentes posean las cualidades necesarias para orientarlos, formarlos y educarlos y, en especial, velar por que conozcan las transformaciones biològicas y psicològicas que implica el proceso de maduraciòn del menor.  

Las personas asumirán las responsabilidades siguientes:

El comportamiento individual:

    12.1 poseer un comportamiento ejemplar que ofrezca un modelo positivo a los niños y adolescentes; abstenerse en todo caso de recompensar, adoptar personalmente o pasar por alto todo comportamiento desleal por parte de terceros; imponer las sanciones adecuadas a este tipo de comportamiento.

    12.2 velar por que el nivel de formaciòn y de calificaciòn se ajuste a las necesidades del menor, en funciòn de los diferentes grados de participaciòn en el deporte.

El trabajo con los jòvenes:

    12.3 convertir la salud, la seguridad y el bienestar del niño o del joven atleta en la principal de sus prioridades, y lograr que estos objetivos sean prioritarios respecto al logro del éxito por persona interpuesta, o a la reputaciòn del club, de la escuela, del entrenador o del padre.

    12.4 lograr que los niños vivan una experiencia deportiva que les anime a participar toda su vida en actividades físicas saludables.

    12.5 abstenerse de tratar a los niños como si fuesen pequeños adultos, teniendo, en cambio, conciencia de las transformaciones físicas y psíquicas que implica el desarrollo del niño y del modo en que influyen en el rendimiento deportivo.

     12.6 abstenerse de situar al menor ante expectativas que no sea capaz de satisfacer.

    12.7 reconocer la importancia que tiene el disfrute y el gozo de la competiciòn, absteniéndose en todo caso de ejercer sobre el niño una presiòn indebida y contraria a su derecho a decidir libremente sobre su participaciòn.

    12.8 interesarse tanto por los individuos mejor dotados como por quienes no lo están tanto, destacando y recompensando, aparte del éxito en la competiciòn, el desarrollo personal y la adquisiciòn de conocimientos prácticos.

    12.9 alentar a los jòvenes a que creen sus propios juegos y adopten sus propias reglas; a que actũen no sòlo como competidores, sino también como entrenadores, directivos o árbitros; a que fijen su propio sistema de gratificaciones y sanciones por comportamientos leales o desleales; y a que se hagan responsables de sus actos.

    12.10 facilitar a los jòvenes y a sus familiares toda la informaciòn posible, con el fin de que sean conscientes de los potenciales riesgos y atractivos del éxito.


13.    El "juego limpio" es esencial si se desea promover y desarrollar el deporte y la participaciòn deportiva. El comportamiento leal en el deporte, "el juego limpio", es beneficioso para la persona, las organizaciones deportivas y la sociedad en su conjunto. Nuestra obligaciòn es fomentar ese espíritu.
