PLAYER, PARENT, COACH & SPECTATOR ETIQUETTE

Recently, there have been reports of unacceptable incidents during Cannons matches. If you have not familiarised yourself with our Codes of Conduct, we kindly request that you do so. These are available on the “Forms” page of this website.

The Cannons are in the process of working with ABBA to understand the formal processes for managing inappropriate behaviour on and off the court. This information will be relayed to all coaches and team-managers, the aim being to provide them with direction in how best to maintain a safe playing environment for our players.

For those watching your children play: if you do have any concerns, please bring them to the attention of your coach in a timely manner. You may also contact any of the Cannons Committee if you feel your issues are not being addressed.

We also ask that parents of non-playing children ensure that they behave in an appropriate manner.

The club understands that not everyone is familiar with the rules of basketball.

IMPORTANT NOTES FOR TEAM MANAGERS

Pease take the time to read some important messages from the Committee regarding this season and beyond:

Scoresheets: It is imperative that all players sign on the reverse side of the score-sheet. This is the only part of the sheet ABBA check when determining whether or not a player has qualified for the finals. Note: The name of the coach must be printed on the front of the score-sheet in the appropriate spot, or the team receives a fine from the association!

Clash Tops: When there are two Cannons teams playing each other, it is important to have one team play in the clash tops. It is the 'home' teams responsibility to organise these and wear them during the game. The 'home' team is the first team listed on the fixture.

The tops can be collected from the coordinator and their details can be found on the club contacts page of this website.

 
"WORKING WITH CHILDREN" CHECKS

Working With Children: The club is now being fined if a team does not have a coach/person present with a WWC check. The only requirement is that the WWC person's name be printed on the front of the scoresheet. If you have a WWC and can help out, please contact the club secretary (see Contacts page for details).

The Williamstown Cannons are committed to providing the safest possible environment for our children to participate in the game of basketball. It is now a legal requirement that all coaches have a "Working With Children" card (WWC).
