Coaches Code of Conduct and Ethics I will place the emotional and physical well-being of my players ahead of a personal desire to win. I will treat each player as an individual, remembering the large range of emotional and physical development for the same age group. I will take reasonable measures to honor all commitments to athletes. I will do my best to provide a safe playing situation for my players. I will promise to review and practice the basic first aid principles needed to treat injuries of my players. I will lead by example in demonstrating fair play and sportsmanship to all my players. I will do my best to organize practices that are fun and challenging for all my players. I will provide a sports environment for my team that is free of drugs, tobacco, and alcohol, and I will refrain from their use at all youth sports events. Will be knowledgeable in the rules of basketball and I will teach these rules to my players. I will use those coaching techniques appropriate for each of the skills that I teach. I will remember that I am a youth sports coach, and that the game is for children not for adults.
