Fair Play Code


EDMONTON YOUTH BASKETBALL FAIR PLAY CODE
AS A PLAYER I WILL:
 

  • Play by the rules and in the spirit of the game.
  • Control my temper - fighting and "mouthing off" can spoil the activity for everybody
  • Respect my opponents
  • Do my best to be a true team player
  • Remember that winning isn’t everything-that having fun, improving skills, making friends and doing my best are as important
  • Acknowledge all good plays/performances-those of my team and of my opponents
  • Participate because I want, not just because my parents or coaches want me to
  • Remember that coaches and officials are there to help me and I will show them respect
  • I will not play in shoes I have worn to the gymnasium

AS A PARENT I WILL:
 

  • Remember that my child plays sport for his or her enjoyment, not for mine
  • Encourage my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence
  • Teach my chill that doing one’s best is as important as winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game/event
  • Make my child feel like a winner every time by offering praise for competing fairly and trying hard
  • Never ridicule or yell at my child for making a mistake or losing a competition
  • Remember that children learn best by example. I will applaud good player’s performances by both my child’s team and their opponents
  • Not force my child to participate in sports
  • Never question the official’s judgment
  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from children’s sporting activities
  • Respect and show appreciation for the trained volunteer coaches who give their time to provide sport activities for my child, understanding that I have a responsibility to be a part of my child’s development
  • Supervise all of my children that attend the game that I am watching
  • I will be on my best behavior at all times and will not use profane language or harass players, coaches, referees, league administrators or volunteers
  • I will not wear my street shoes in the gymnasium

AS A COACH I WILL:
 

  • Ensure that all athletes get fair playing time, instruction and support
  • Teach my athletes to play fairly and to respect the rules, officials and opponents
  • Not ridicule or yell at my athletes for making mistakes or for performing poorly. I will remember that children play to have fun and must be encouraged to have confidence in themselves
  • Make sure that equipment and facilities are safe and match the athletes’ ages and abilities
  • Remember that children need a coach they can respect. I will be generous with praise and set a good example
  • Obtain proper training and continue to upgrade my coaching skills
  • Work in partnership with parents and players
  • I will treat other coaches, players and referees with respect and yelling at participants will not be condoned.
  • I will not wear my street shoes in the gymnasium

I have read and understand the above Fair Play Code
