Player's Code of Conduct
1. I understand and play by the adopted rules.
2. Respect referees and other officials.
Referees and officials have a difficult task to perform and the game cannot be played without them. They are there to enforce the rules of play but they cannot always be right. I will accept bad calls graciously.
3. Control your temper.
Verbal abuse of officials or other players is a serious offence against the rules of basketball.
4. Work equally hard for yourself and for your team.
I owe it to myself and others involved in my team to train and play to the best of my abilities. I will be punctual for games and will always advise if I am unable to participate.
5. Be a good sport.
Acknowledge all good plays whether they be by my team or the other team. Good manners and respect can be infectious. Part of participation in sport is respect for all participants in the game.
6. Treat all players as you would like to be treated.
Do not interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of another player. Do not abuse or ridicule another player when a mistake is made. Constructive guidance and encouragement when a player does well will assist a player to improve their game.
7. Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person.
Regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background, religion or other factor irrelevant to the game, all persons connected with basketball are entitled to equal treatment and respect.
8. Be prepared to lose sometimes.
Everyone wins and loses at some time. Be a fair winner and a good loser. Disappointment at losing is natural, but it should not be obvious to the point of being unpleasant for others. Just as unpleasant can be the boastful winner. Recognise that even in defeat, the loser has achieved something, just by playing.
9. Always respect the use of facilities and equipment provided.
Facilities and equipment cost money and will only function properly if kept in good order. Ensure that you do not abuse anything provided for use.
If you want to report injury or an incident from a social competition night game there are two forms which must be completed and returned.
1. Gold Coast Basketball Injury/Incident Report – must be completed within 12 hours of occurrence and forwarded to Gold Coast Basketball
