BASA Coaches Code of Conduct


BASA COACHES Code of Conduct:

1.    Treat each player, opposing coach, official, parent, and administrator with respect and dignity.

2.    Acknowledge in your behavior, actions, communication, and language that the BASA program exists for the players first and a love of soccer second.

In all circumstances, teach and model good sportsmanship…winning with grace and losing with dignity. We will not tolerate foul language from COACHES; speak to your players, parents, and referees with respect at all times!

Base playing time decisions on individual player development and learning…not wining. No one learns without being given the opportunity to make mistakes and fail and to keep moving forward after the mistake..that is how we grow, learn, and develop. BASA mandates 50% minimum playing time for all players U11 and younger.

Do your best to learn the fundamental skills, teaching and evaluation techniques, and strategies of soccer. Use the Coaches Corner, You Tube, google, watch soccer, and be informed about best practices!

Become thoroughly familiar with the rules of soccer and teach them to players and assistant coaches.

Become familiar with the objectives of the BASA program and strive to achieve these objectives and communicate them to your players and parents. SPORTSMANSHIP, DEVELOPMENT, AND ENJOYMENT!

Learn the strengths and weaknesses of your players so that you might place them into situations where they have the maximum opportunity to achieve success and other opportunities to make mistakes and learn from them.

Plan and conduct practices and games so that all players have an opportunity to improve their skill level through active participation.  Limit lines, lectures, and laps.  Keep players engaged and moving!  Make it fun!

Communicate to the players and their parents the rights and responsibilities of individuals on our team.

Cooperate with the director and administrators of the BASA program in the enforcement of rules and regulations, and report any irregularities that violate sound practices.

Protect the health and safety of the players by insisting that all of the activities under our control are conducted for the psychological and physiological welfare of the player in mind. THE PLAYERS ALWAYS COME FIRST - do not forget that.
