Parent/Spectator Code of Behaviour


  • Remember that children participate in sport for their enjoyment, not yours.
  • Encourage children to participate, do not force them.
  • Focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing.
  • Encourage children always to play according to the rules and to settle disagreements without resorting to hostility or violence.
  • Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a competition.
  • Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances and skilful plays by all participants.
  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities.
  • Respect officials’ decisions and teach children to do likewise.
  • Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials and administrators. Without them, your child could not participate.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
  • Refrain from engaging in negative or destructive discussion or postings on social media about players, coaches, spectators, officials, administrators or other basketball participants, that may be viewed as abusive, harassing or offensive in nature.


  • Adhere to the zero tolerance policy.
  • Applaud good performance and efforts from each team.
  • Congratulate all participants upon their performance regardless of the games outcome.
  • Respect officials' decisions and teach children to do the same.
  • Never ridicule or scold a child for making a mistake. Positive comments are  motivational.
  • Condemn the use of violence in any form be it by spectators, coaches, officials or players.
  • Encourage players to follow the rules and the officials decisions.
  • Do not use foul language or harass players, coaches or officials.
