Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

Parents

1.       Be a role model and positive example for your child.

2.       Demonstrate good sportsmanship even when things aren’t going your way

3.       Be realistic about your child’s current skill level.  A coach’s assessment of her skills will probably be more objective than yours.

4.       Help your child achieve their goals - not yours.  Teach them the work involver to meet that specific goal.

5.       Playing time is not up for discussion.  You have joined a completive team.  No participation trophies will be given.  Your child will get out of basketball what he or she puts in.

6.       Support you child in the classroom first and on the court second.  If your child is not passing he or she will not be able to play.

7.       Your child must display appropriate conduct when off the court.  He or she represents the aftershock Basketball Club and negative conduct may hinder playing time as well as college scholarship offers.

8.       If you have on court issues please notify the coach by phone or at the next practice.  Do not approach the coach while emotions are still high or between games.  If your child has an issue he or she must approach coach directly.   This teaches him or her how to effectively communicate and resolve conflicts.

9.       Respect Aftershock coaches, personnel, players, referees, and opponents.

10.   Please do not coach your child during games or during practices unless a coach asks you to help.  You do know your child best, but it’s difficult for him or her to absorb conflicting information from 2 people at the same time.  Often times the coaching parents give during games is just the opposite of what they were told during a timeout.

11.   No one wins at everything in life or on the court.  Teach your child how to win and lose well.

 

DUES PAYMENTS ARE DUE THE 15th OF EVERY MONTH.  PLEASE MAKE PAYMENTS ON TIME IN ORDER FOR YOUR CHILD TO PRACTICE AND PLAY
