We want to be the sport of choice
We want to have a united culture 
We want to embrace a diverse community

This framework applies to all people in attendance at Basketball SA competitions or tournaments, including coaches, team managers, staff, players, referees, other officials, and spectators.

Behaviour Management Framework

Unfortunately, incidents of poor behaviour within our sport has been increasing. It is recognised that to improve the culture, changes are needed from everyone within the sport – players, coaches, volunteers, referees, staff and officials.

The Behaviour Management Framework looks to set a standard of behaviour through on court and off court mechanisms and clear guidelines.

The Behaviour Management Framework will be implemented in 2022 and be reviewed in 12 months to assess its effectiveness.
