Fair Play and Safety Pledge for Coaches

Fair Play and Safety Pledge for Coaches

As one of the guiding aims & objectives of the BMHA is to ensure everyone is having fun in a healthy and safe environment, it is important that Coaches demonstrate the following commitments outlined in the BMHA Fair Play Pledge for Coaches:

  • I will be reasonable when scheduling games and practices, remembering that players have other interests and obligations.
  • I will teach my players to play fairly and to respect the rules, officials and opponents.
  • I will ensure that all players get equal instruction, support and playing time.
  • I will not ridicule or yell at my players for making mistakes or for performing poorly.
  • I will remember that players play to have fun and must be encouraged to have confidence in themselves.
  • I will make sure that equipment and facilities are safe and match the player's ages and abilities.
  • I will remember that participants need a coach they can respect. I will be generous with praise and set a good example.
  • I will obtain proper training and continue to upgrade my coaching skills.
  • I will work in cooperation with officials for the benefit of the game.
  • I will respect return to play protocol regarding player injuries and concussions.
