Code of Conduct

Player’s code of conduct  

Sportsmanship is the cooperation of people as a unit showing common courtesy, patience, pride, and respect. Sportsmanship takes teamwork. Sportsmanship is a demonstration of generosity and genuine concern for others. It is a concrete measure of the understanding and commitment to fair play, ethical behavior and integrity.

 1.  Maintain a “Fun is #1" attitude

 2. “Golden Rule” Treat others as you wish to be treated

 3.  Praise teammates for their efforts, regardless of their athletic skills

4.  Look for positives in teammates and avoid ridicule or sarcasm

5.  Remain calm when mistakes are made, and help teammates learn from them

6.  Help teammates from getting down on themselves

7.  Don’t be obsessed with your involvement in sports.  There is life after sports

8.  Maintain a sense of humor

9.  EMPHASIZE TEAMWORK IN TEAM SPORTS.....THINK “WE” INSTEAD OF “ME”

10.  Lead by setting a good example in sportsmanship; winning without gloating and losing without complaining

Parental code of conduct

1.  FOLLOW THE GOLDEN RULE

Always treat others (coaches, parents, officials and players) the same way that you would want you and your child to be treated.

Set the example by showing respect, dignity, and total sportsmanship at all times.

2.   ACT YOUR AGE

Youth basketball is for the kids. If you find yourself becoming too emotionally involved in what’s happening on the court, take a step back and relax.  Remember, your childhood is over.

Give the young players the freedom to enjoy theirs. 

3.   BE RESPONSIBLE

Get the kids to practice and to games on time, with their uniform and sneakers.

Help them eat and drink right before, during and after the game.

The more your children see you act responsibly, the more they will do the same.

4.   BE SEEN, NOT HEARD

Nothing is better for a young player than having their parents on hand to watch them play. 

Nothing is worse for a player than hearing a parent booing, taunting, screaming or making comments at, or about, players, coaches, fans or officials. 

Offer applause and cheers of encouragement for both teams following a good play or a great effort, but otherwise keep quiet. 

5.   IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE FUN-SO HELP MAKE IT THAT WAY!

Keep Smiling 

Encourage enjoyment and participation over results. 

If it’s not fun, something’s wrong. 

6.   MOTIVATED THROUGH CONFIDENCE

Identify positive from every game or practice to help build confidence

A young player’s sense of achievement is the greatest motivator.

7.   DON’T QUESTION AN OFFICIAL’S CALL

You may not agree with a call, but it’s not your job (or the players’ or coaches’ either) to officiate the game.  Never should an official’s call be argued by anyone.   Accept the call and move on.

8.   IF YOU MUST, TALK WITH THE COACH AFTER THE GAME 

Or better yet, wait until the next day if you have an issue to discuss about how the coach is running the team. 

Let the heat of the moment pass.  Never make a scene in front of the team as it’s embarrassing for you, your children and the coach.  And chances are nothing will get resolved.

9.   PUT WINNING AND LOSING IN PERSPECTIVE

Games have winners and losers.  Keep reminding your child about this reality and the need to deal with both outcomes.

Young players should avoid getting too cocky when they win and too upset when they lose. 

10.   AVOID THE POST GAME ANALYSIS

Don’t analyze your child’s performance following every game.  If you do, chances are they will avoid talking to you after games, or worse yet, not want you at the games at all.

Let your children come to you for advice.  It will have more of an impact than you going to them
