We understand that while the playoffs are a great deal of fun, they can also be a source of tension and stress as our teams are faced with situations where the season ends with a loss. Though we realize that it is human nature to express this, we remind everyone of the TYB policies regarding conduct of our players and parents.
TYB is committed to providing a safe environment for its players, and to prevent abusive conduct in any form. We have established guidelines of behavior and procedures for all people involved with TYB, including coaches, players, parents, spectators, volunteers and other invitees – all of whom are expected to observe and adhere to these guidelines. First and foremost, abuse of any kind is not permitted and we do not tolerate physical, emotional or verbal abuse from our players, coaches, volunteers, parents or spectators.
As a general rule:
• Do NOT coach your kids from the stands or behind the bench at any time during games.
• Do encourage your child and the team at all times. Win or lose.
• Never make comments to the referees.
• Do not vocally question any basketball decisions that your child’s coach may make during the game.
If the TYB organization becomes aware of such behavior, we reserve the right to dismiss any player from the program for the remainder of the playoffs and/or remove any offending spectators (including parents) from the game in question or any future playoff games.
