Basketball is an excellent recreational activity for enjoyment and health.  It’s also a lot of fun to watch! However, sometimes the behaviour of a participant (Player, Parent, Spectator, Coach, Administrator or Official) ruins the fun, or even the safety, of others.

During the game, spectators are encouraged to support and call out positive comments, but there must be no coaching, instructing or officiating.  Remember, coaches are volunteers, please treat them and the referees with courtesy and respect and let our players have fun!

No spectator is to speak directly to the referee at any time.  Umpires wearing green are trainee referees, please be considerate, all umpires must learn somewhere.  Remember, that umpire you are angry with could be your son or daughter, please treat them with respect.

Keilor Basketball Association (KBA) has a Participant Behaviour Policy which provides a clear and comprehensive statement of expectations.


Basketball Victoria have developed Codes of Conduct so that we can all be clear of the behavioural expectations that apply to us. These Codes are designed to assist everyone to safely receive the maximum benefit from their involvement in basketball.

Remember that breaches of code not only undermine the enjoyment & safety of the sport -they can also lead to sanctions being applied to individuals, teams or even the Club. In such circumstances – ignorance of a Code is not accepted as an excuse.

Basketball Victoria Codes of Conduct

If controlling your behaviour is an issue, remain outside the venue – go and get a coffee, catch up on emails, go for a walk – let our children enjoy basketball.
If a player has played with a KBAJ domestic club within the last 12 months before the player is able to play with another KBAJ domestic club, they must:
  • Settle any financials owed
  • Return uniform / equipment, as required
