Coaches Code of Conduct

All  KPBA coaches shall unconditionally support KPBA's commitment to the ideals of good sportsmanship, team play, honesty, integrity, loyalty, and respect for authority.  In order to adhere to these principles...


  • Conduct themselves in a manner that best serves the interests, health, and well-being of the players.
  • Be sensitive to the physical and emotional well-being of all players.
  • Be positive role models.
  • Maintain open lines of communication with all players, parents, and KPBA officials.
  • Display and instill in their players the principles of good sportsmanship and team play.
  • Do their best to provide the players with a positive experience.
  • Ensure that winning and/or losing teams do so in a manner which exhibits good sportsmanship.
  • Treat all players, parents, spectators, opposing coaches, scorekeepers/timers, referees and league officials with respect.
  • Provide instruction in a manner that is constructive and supportive.
  • Remain under emotional control at all times.
  • Comply with the decisions of league officials and observe all rules, policies and procedures as established or endorsed by the KPBA Board.
  • Teach the game of basketball to the best of their ability.
  • Attend any skill sessions that may be required by the KPBA Board.
  • Be drug, alcohol, and tobacco-free while at any KPBA athletic event.
  • Technical fouls- If you receive a technical foul during a game you are required to sit down at the end of the bench and refrain from speaking to any players on the court, coaches or referees for the remainder of the game.  Your assistant will take over coaching duties for the remainder of the game. If you receive a second technical foul during the same game you are required to leave the facility immediately and you will consequently be denied the opportunity to continue to coach in the KPBA program for the remainder of the year, and for the following year.  If you receive three technical fouls during the course of a single season you will be denied the opportunity to continue to coach in the KPBA program for the remainder of the year, and for the following year.  In both cases, at the conclusion of the one year suspension you may request a meeting with the KPBA Board to discuss reinstatement.


  • Question a call or decision made by any referee, official, or coach.
  • Use abusive or profane language.
  • Taunt or humiliate any KPBA player or opponent's player.
  • Abuse, mistreat or mishandle any KPBA or league equipment or property.

The KPBA Board unconditionally supports the principles and behavioral guidelines established in the Coaches Code of Conduct, and violations will be strictly enforced.  Any coach violating the Code of Conduct may be subject to administrative action by the KPBA Board. Actions may include, but are not limited to; the violator's privilege to participate in, or attend any KPBA sponsored activity. Administrative actions for failing to comply with the Code are at the sole discretion of the KPBA Board of Directors.
