Code of Conduct – Players

Approved by the Board of Directors P&DBA Inc.

  • That you will abide by the policy and guidelines of the statutory requirements of the NSW legislation in relation to child protection and BNSW’s sports rage guidelines.
  • Play by the rules.
  • Never argue with an official. If you disagree, have your captain, coach or manager approach the referee during a break or after the game in an appropriate manner.
  • Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials or other players, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent is not acceptable or permitted in basketball.
  • Work equally hard for yourself and for your team. Your team’s performance will benefit and so will you.
  • Be a good sport. Acknowledge all good plays whether they are your team or the other team.
  • Treat all players, as you would like to be treated. Do not interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of another player.
  • Co-operate with your coach, teammates and opponents. Without them there would be no competition.
  • Play for the “Fun of it” and not just to please parents and coaches.
  • Avoid use of derogatory language based of gender, race or impairment.
  • Be prepared to lose sometimes. Everyone wins and loses at some time. Be a fair winner and good loser.
