To be qualified as a TBAS Recommended Coach, the person must possess a valid Tchoukball coaching certificate endorsed by FITB and/or TBAS; the person must also fully abide by the TBAS Coaches Code of Ethics.

 

TBAS COACHES CODE OF ETHICS

  I believe that my role as a coach is to contribute to the holistic development of my athletes through
  participation in Tchoukball. I will endeavor to be a positive role model for my athletes.


1) I will adopt a professional attitude and maintain the highest standards of personal conduct, encompassing my mannerism, dress and language.

2) I will be responsible for periodically updating my coaching expertise through participation in courses, conferences and workshops and through information available in resource materials.

3) I will prepare well-planned and sound training programmes and execute them in a manner that would benefit all my athletes.

4) I will ensure that training and competition venues meet with minimum safety standards and that my athletes are properly attired.

5) I will abide by the Charter and Rules of Tchoukball and respect my opponents and those in positions of authority.

6) I will treat and respect everyone equally, regardless of race, language, religion, culture, gender or physical ability.

7) I will be sensitive to the feelings of my athletes when providing feedback on their training progress and performance during competition. I will direct criticisms, if any, on my athlete's performance, not at the athlete.

8) I know there is a need for certain information to be kept confidential. I will only disclose such information with the consent of those who requested confidentiality.

9) I will avoid sexual intimacy with my athlete. I will have physical contact with my athletes only when absolutely necessary and during appropriate situations.

10) I will exercise self-awareness and evaluate how my values and actions influence my coaching activities positively or negatively.
