1. Coaches are selected by each individual league commissioner subject to review of the Board. Coaching a team the prior season does not guarantee a team for the following season. League commissioners are instructed to choose their coaches based on whom they feel will do the best job, which includes adhering to guidelines and overall philosophies of the program.
  2. The SAA expects and demands nothing less than exemplary conduct from all players, coaches, parents and spectators at all SAA functions. Coaches are responsible for the conduct of their players, assistant coaches, parents and spectators, and are expected to prevent or correct any violation of the facilities management rules, league rules, or rules pertaining to the expectation of proper conduct by all parties. Intimidation of game officials will not be tolerated.
  3. Only two coaches are allowed on the bench during the games. They should be seated on the side of the bench closest to the scorer’s table. Only one coach is allowed to stand during the game at any time, and only to give instructions or encouragement to their own players.
  4. Coaches are required to refrain from drinking alcoholic beverages prior to all practices and games. This rule also applies to all adults who attend games. Anyone in violation of this rule will be asked to leave the premises and will face disciplinary action by the Basketball Board.
  5. Any coach called for two technical fouls in a game will be ejected from that game. A coach can be ejected for gross unsportsmanlike conduct or disruptive behavior (in the opinion of the game official), without receiving a second technical. Any coach who is ejected from a game is automatically suspended from his team’s next game. When ejected a coach must leave the facility within three (3) minutes to allow the game to continue. The three minutes is to be used to arrange transportation for his son/daughter and not for arguing with the game officials (which will lead to additional disciplinary action). "Leave the facility" means the coach must leave the gym, the building, and the parking lot and not return that day. There will be no coaching from the hallways or lurking around to continue arguments with the game officials.
  6. An ejection by an official automatically requires an additional 1-game suspension.
  7. See the SAA Disciplinary policy for details on unsportsmanlike conduct or disregard for the rules/policies/procedures of the sport or of the SAA.
  8. Coaches serve at the discretion of the Head Basketball Commissioner and Basketball Board of Commissioners and can be relieved at any time they deem necessary for the good of the SAA Basketball Program.
  9. Collect signed code of conduct from all players parents/guardian in your league at first meeting and turn over to league commissioner.
