Code of Conduct for Coaches
This is the time to get children interested in basketball. They do not know what they are good at until they are given the chance. We want everyone to be given fair playing time, regardless of skill level.
All players should be able to start in at least one game. Our goal is for all players to be given an equal opportunity and, most importantly, a positive learning experience. There will be no tryouts in this program and all players should get equal court time. It is important for coaches to work together to create positive experiences for all participants.
