Ontario Basketball Fair Play Guidelines
Fair Play Policy Statement
Welcome to an OBA FAIR PLAY facility
Enjoy the basketball game(s) and the competition.
Cheer as much and as loud as you want.
Please be aware that verbal or physical abuse of fellow players, spectators, coaches or officials will not be tolerated!
Everyone here wants to have fun and enjoy themselves. Do not take the fun out of sports for others.
If you disregard OBA’s FAIR PLAY POLICY, you will be asked to leave the facility.

Club team representatives will be responsible for maintaining the proper decorum for their teams. In the event of any OBA disciplinary proceeding, the team representative for the concerned team will be responsible to represent the team to the Chair of Fair Play for Ontario Basketball.

Volunteers
The SBA currently needs volunteers of all ages (high school students to adults) to help it to fulfill its commitment to the youth of Scarborough and surrounding neighbourhoods. Opportunities are available for coaching, assistant coaches, refereeing, scorekeeping, convening, Board Members, committee members, etc.

The Mission of the Scarborough Basketball Association (SBA) is to provide a positive environment for all Scarborough and surrounding area youth, coaches and parents by promoting and developing the sport of basketball.

Although there is not a financial reward for volunteering, you will be helping the community to provide leadership and guidance for the youth. In addition, volunteering is an excellent way to meet new people and make friendships. It also provides an opportunity for being recognized in the community and providing new experiences.

Having said all of the above, what price can anyone put on the smile of a youngster who says, “Thank you, Coach” or the parent who says, “Thank you for all the fun that my son/daughter has had this year”.

Since volunteers play a critical role in the operation of the Scarborough Basketball Association (SBA) organization and its activities, our volunteers are expected to conduct their efforts in a manner that will allow the values and goals of the SBA to be achieved. Thus how a participant regards the SBA is often dependent on the leadership of the volunteer. A Code of Conduct has been developed to assist volunteers in achieving a level of behaviour which will allow SBA participants to become well-rounded, self confident and productive human beings.
