Coaches Code of Conduct
The athlete/coach relationship is a privileged one. Coaches play a critical role in the personal as well as athletic development of their athletes. They must understand and respect the inherent power imbalance that exists in this relationship and must be extremely careful not to abuse it. Coaches must also recognize that they are conduits
through which the values and goals of a sport organization are channelled.
Thus, how an athlete regards his/her sport is often dependent on the behavior of the coach. The following Coaches Code of Conduct has been developed to aid coaches in achieving a level of behaviour which will allow them to assist their athletes in becoming well-rounded,
self-confident and productive citizens.
