12. Coaches’ Ethics

The coach must be aware that he/she can be either a positive or negative influence upon the development of the athlete. In all of their personal contacts with athletes, officials, parents, the media, and the public, the coach shall strive to set an example of the highest ethical and moral conduct. In keeping with that goal, the following ethical guidelines should be observed during the Boone Roundball Classic:

 

a. The coach shall never place the value of winning above the value of instilling the highest desirable ideals of character.

 

b. The coach must always consider the personal safety of the athlete.

 

c. The coach shall be thoroughly acquainted with the rules and regulations of competition, and shall be responsible for their interpretation to team members. The coach shall not try to seek an advantage by circumventing the spirit or letter of the rules.




d. Game officials shall have the respect and support of the coach. The coach shall not indulge in conduct, which will incite the players or spectators against the officials. Public criticism of the officials or players is unethical.

 

e. The coach should respect his opponents, display gracious behavior during competition and require his players to conduct themselves in similar fashion. Before and after the contest, rival coaches should meet and exchange friendly greetings to set the correct tone for the event.

 

f. Coaches shall actively use their influence to enhance sportsmanship by spectators.

 

g. The coach shall take an active role in the prevention of drug, alcohol and tobacco abuse, and shall under no circumstance authorize their use.

 

13. Sportsmanship

It is the obligation of coaches, players, administrators, volunteers and other representatives of the Boone Roundball Classic to practice the highest principles of sportsmanship and to observe the ethics of competition. Good sportsmanship is defined as qualities of behavior, which are characterized by courtesy and genuine concern for others. The display of good sportsmanship is a statement of the individual’s understanding and commitment to fair play, ethical behavior and integrity.

 

14. Tie Breaker System:

1) Head to Head Play: The team that wins the head to head competition between the two tied teams will move on.

 

2) Point System: A point differential system will be used if three or more teams are tied. Teams will receive a maximum of + 15 points for a win and a maximum of –15 points for a loss. The team with the most positive points will be first followed by the next most positive point total. If two teams are still tied, they would revert to the first tie breaker system.

 

3) Defensive Point System: A total Defensive point system will be used if three teams are still tied. If two are still tied, they would revert to the first tie breaker system. Example: Team A is 2-1 with wins of 56-32 & 64-45 and a loss of 56-64. Total defensive points determined are 141. Repeat the same procedure for the remaining two teams. The team with the fewest points allowed will determine the team's’ order of placement.

 

4) Random Draw:  any ties not broken by the above methods will be settled by a random draw administered by a Tournament Director.

 

 

***Coaches must have with them at all times, each player’s birth certificate and a current school years report card.***

Coaches Responsibility

Each coach will be responsible for all members of their team, during and after games, including all parents and spectators representing their team.

Unsportsmanlike Disqualification

A team and/or player is subject to immediate disqualification from a tournament for any conduct deemed inappropriate, unacceptable, unsafe and/or abusive, home hotel/restaurant or playing site property, trashing team bench area, fighting, unsportsmanlike play and/or conduct, or ineligible player. Any disqualification is the sole decision of the tournament officials. An ejection of any player, coach, parent, or spectator representing a team will result in a minimum of a one game suspension and up to dismissal from the event. A second ejection within the same event will result in suspension from the tournament. No refunds will be issued in the event of disqualification.

The Tournament Directors reserve the right to adjust tournament rules to preserve the spirit of competition at any point for any reason.
