Coach's Pledge

Coach's Pledge

The Willetton Stadium and the Jets Basketball Club have codes of conduct for all stakeholders including coaches. Please make yourself familiar with the codes as they apply to you as a coach.

I will remember that players participate for pleasure and winning is only part of the fun

I will never ridicule or yell at players for making a mistake or not winning

I will be reasonable in my demands on players' time, energy and enthusiasm

I will operate within the rules and spirit of the game and teach my players to do the same

I will ensure that the time players spend with me is a positive experience. All players are deserving of equal attention and opportunities

I will avoid overplaying the talented players and understand that average players need and deserve playing time

I will not use bad language nor will I harass players, officials, spectators or other coaches

I will ensure that equipment and facilities meet safety standards and are appropriate to the age and ability of all players

I will display control, respect and professionalism to all involved with the sport including opponents, coaches, officials, administrators, parents and spectators. I will encourage my players to do the same

I will show concern and caution toward sick and injured players and follow the advice of a physician when determining whether an injured player is ready to recommence training or competition

I will obtain appropriate qualifications and keep up to date with the latest coaching practices and the principles of growth and development of young players

I will not arrive at games, training or club functions intoxicated or drink alcohol at junior events

I will not allow the unlawful supply of alcohol at training, games or club facilities

I will familiarise myself with and promote the club’s Healthy Club policy

I will respect the rights, dignity and worth of all people involved in the game, regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background
