Coaches Code of Conduct
Because the behavior of a team can reflect the coach’s own manner, attitudes, temperament and approach to athletics, coaches shall conduct themselves in a way, both on and off the court, that brings positive recognition to God, Trinity, their team, their sport and themselves. Instruction and correction, while sometimes demanding and critical, should always be positive. Coaches should never embarrass or demean athletes. The same high standards of preparation, organization, dedication, hard work, self-discipline, sacrifice and godly behavior that coaches expect of players, are expected of coaches. Coaches shall model good sportsmanship and respectful attitudes toward officials and opposing teams in victory and defeat.
Coaches should always treat officials with respect when discussing a call or rule interpretation. Coaches have a right, and in many cases, a duty to stand up for their team when a questionable call is made by an official. However, taunting and berating the officials with sarcasm and disrespect is unacceptable behavior for any coach at Trinity Classical Academy. Excessive “questioning” of officials for calls during an entire game is also considered unacceptable.
All coaches are expected to know the rules of the game and the rules/policies of the leagues in which we participate: CIF and/or SCAIL.
