  1. Conduct Policy for Coaches and Managers

    Definition
    Anyone who participates as a teacher, leader or instructor to train, educate or motivate athletes to compete in an athletic activity.

    Goal Statement
    Any coach participating in Ontario Basketball sanctioned events will be expected to adhere to Ontario Basketball’s principles of Fair Play and the Conduct Policy for Coaches.

    Actions
    In addition to the responsibilities of the OBA Code of Conduct, Coaches have added accountability. The coach-athlete relationship is a privileged one and plays a critical role in the personal, sport, and athletic development of the athlete and must not abuse this relationship. Coaches of Ontario Basketball will:

    • Be a Leader, a positive influence and a role model.
    • Meet all requirements set out by OBA in order to be a certified coach.
    • Reward effort, Fair Play and commitment.
    • Recognize and respect the differences in all athletes.
    • Demonstrate respect for all individuals involved in the game.
    • Always consider the physical and emotional well being of the athletes.
    • Communicate in a positive and rational manner, and use inoffensive language.
    • Respect and coach within the spirit of the game.
    • Always attempt to contribute to the betterment of the game of basketball.

    Individuals who are witness to any actions contrary to the Conduct Policy for Coaches should contact Ontario Basketball’s Commissioner of Fair Play and Resolution.

  2. Every participant in an OBA sanctioned activity is responsible for:

    a) Confirming annually as required by OBA their review of the concussion awareness resources available from the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport website; and

    b) Confirming annually as required by OBA their review of the Concussion Policy and Code of Conduct.

    If a participant is under 18 years of age, the parents/guardians of such participant is also responsible for a) and b) above.
