Court Time Policy
Our Coaches run at DNBC like a Representative Squad.
Attendance at training, effort, commitment to your team, good sportsmanship, listening to your coach and having a good team ethic is important. This teaches resilience, leadership, how to work as a team and generally, become a good human.
If a child is displaying the above qualities, all efforts will be made to give players equal court time (particularly in the younger age groups).
If a child is not attending training without contacting their coach with a reason, or is being disruptive, unkind or refusing to listen or put a good effort in, then they will not be given equal court time REGARDLESS OF HOW TALENTED THEY ARE AT THE GAME!
Our Club does not apologise for this. Players who start the game in the DNBC Squad are the ones who turn up to training each week and display our Code of Conduct values. Our Coaches are very happy to sit the most talented player off the court if they have been missing in training, or not being a good team mate to their team.
Please understand that we are using sport to teach life-skills, and children love discipline and boundaries. I ask that the parents support me and the Coaches in this important guideline.
