CODES OF BEHAVIOUR

FUTURE BASKETBALL ACADEMY has adopted and follows the codes of behaviour as set out by the New Zealand Sports Commission.

 

FOR PLAYERS.

  • Play by the rules.

  • Never argue with an official. If you disagree, have your captain, coach or manager approach the official during a break or after the competition.

  • Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials, sledging other players or deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable or permitted behaviours in any sport.

  • Work equally hard for yourself and/or your team. Your team’s performance will benefit and so will you.

  • Be a good sport. Applaud all good plays whether they are made by your team or the opposition.

  • Treat all participants in your sport as you like to be treated. Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another competitor.

  • Cooperate with your coach, team-mates and opponents. Without them, there would be no competition.

  • Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please your parents and coaches.

  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

 

 

FOR COACHES AND WHERE APPLICABLE PARENTS.

  • Remember that young people participate for pleasure, and winning is only part of the fun.

  • Never ridicule or yell at a young player for making a mistake or not coming first.

  • Be reasonable in your demands on players’ time, energy and enthusiasm.

  • Operate within the rules and spirit of your sport and teach your players to do the same.

  • Ensure that the time players spend with you is a positive experience.

  • Avoid overplaying the talented players; the ‘just average’ need and deserve appropriate time too.

  • Ensure that equipment and facilities meet safety standards and are appropriate to the age and ability of all players.

  • Display control, respect and professionalism to all involved with the sport. This includes opponents, coaches, officials, administrators, the media, parents and spectators. Encourage players to do the same.

  • Show concern and caution towards sick and injured players. Follow the advice of a physician when determining whether an injured player is ready to recommence training or competition.

  • Any physical contact with a young person should be appropriate to the situation and necessary for the player’s skill development.

  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

  • Obtain appropriate qualifications and keep up to date with the latest coaching practices and the principles of growth and development of young people.
