Positive attitudes and conduct make sport enjoyable for everyone. Some people can ruin the experience with poor behaviour.
This can include things like undue pressure, abuse, taunting, poor sportsmanship, foul language, harassment, bullying, victimisation and more. It can be verbal, written, physical or emotional.
Poor behaviour can occur in many places - during play, on the sidelines, at training, in the clubhouse or outside of the sporting arena.
It can be coaches, players, parents, spectators, officials or administrators that behave poorly. Any one of these people, children or adults, can be the victim of poor conduct too.
Poor behaviour in sport results in:
Risks to people's wellbeing
Reduced enjoyment for everyone
Children and adults giving up sport
Fewer people willing to volunteer for coaching, officiating and other roles
Risks to clubs reputation and management
The Southern Tigers Basketball Association pride themselves in being a tolerant, good and fair sporting community and encourage all of our families and friends to carry this mind set through this current finals series and beyond.
