Middle School Basketball Code of Conduct             .

COACH CODE OF CONDUCT

THE PURPOSE OF THIS LEAGUE IS TO GIVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY BASKETBALL IN A POSITIVE ATMOSPHERE OF FUN, COMPETITION, AND RESPECT FOR OTHERS. TO ASSURE THAT THIS WILL HAPPEN WE MUST REQUIRE ALL SPECTATORS WHO ATTEND GAMES AT ALL OF THE FACILITIES USED BY THE LEAGUE, TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS EXPECTED OF THEM.

1. Use of any FOUL or THREATENING language is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.  Game officials or a league official will ask anyone who is in violation to leave the gym. If he or she refuses to leave, the game will be stopped until he or she leaves the gym.

2. Coaches are responsible for their spectators/parents and will encourage “cheering” for their team and discourage yelling negative and derogatory comments at the other team. Coaches are responsible on request to calm a spectator or ask them to leave.

3. Coaches will not enter the court during play unless summoned by a game official.

4. Coaches will not approach the score table when play is happening. They may approach during timeouts and breaks under the supervision of game officials.

5. Head Coach may stand in coaching box.  Assistant coaches must sit during game play unless otherwise permitted.

6. Any coach or player ejected from a game will serve a one game suspension and may not attend the next game.

7. At all times, coaches should be a positive example for every person in the gym. Failure to do so may result in removal from the coaching position. 

8.  Coaches will provide every player opportunities to play in every game, and will avoid any player playing more than 75% of a game during the regular season.

PLAYER CODE OF CONDUCT

  Players, your behavior during play this season is of the utmost importance. As a young athlete, you hold a position of importance and are an example to many younger athletes. Below is the code of conduct for TYBL Middle School Basketball:

1. Use of any FOUL or THREATENING language is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. The use of such language can result in a technical foul OR immediate ejection.

2. Use of physical violence (fighting, punching, kicking and) of any sort inside or on the grounds of a facility run by Middle School Basketball Leagues will result in an immediate ban and likely criminal charges.

3. Players will “cheer” for their team, not yell negative and derogatory comments at the other team.

4. Players will enter the court dressed appropriately, as set by the referees conducting the game. Jersey must be tucked in, and all jewelry must be removed from the body.

5. Players who are ejected from any game will serve a one game suspension and may not play in the following game.

6. Players understand that they can be removed from their team (at the league’s or the coach’s discretion) without refund for disciplinary measures.

It is the policy of this league that it is for the kids. TYBL Board Members, Coaches, Score keepers and Game Officials all participate in order to give kids the chance to play high quality basketball in a safe environment. Any person or thing standing in the way of that will be removed from that atmosphere. Thank you for your cooperation.
