🙋🏻‍♂️🙋‍♀️ Coaches:

Sportsmanship: It is the obligation of coaches, players, administrators, volunteers, and other representatives to practice the highest principles of sportsmanship and to observe the ethics of competition. Good sportsmanship is defined as qualities of behavior, which are characterized by courtesy and genuine concern for others. The display of good sportsmanship is a statement of the individual's understanding and commitment to fair play, ethical behavior and integrity.

The following ethical guidelines should be observed by all coaches:

The coach shall never place the value of winning above the value of instilling the highest desirable ideals of character. The coach must always consider the personal safety of the athlete.

The coach shall be thoroughly acquainted with the rules and regulations of competition and shall be responsible for the interpretation to team members.

Event officials shall have the respect and support of the coach. The coach shall not indulge in conduct which will intice the players or spectators against the officials. Public criticism of the officials or players is unethical. The coach should respect his opponents, display gracious behavior during competition and require his players to conduct themselves in similar fashion. Before and after the contest, rival coaches should exchange friendly greetings to set the correct tone for the event.
