Facebook and Other Social Media

Over the last few years there has been a considerable growth in open forums, such as Facebook, Twitter and Hoops and the club felt it was appropriate to address their use in as far as it affects parents, players, coaches, officials and the club in general.
While these forums are a very accepted part of every day life, it is the club’s belief that they are not an appropriate way of airing an individual’s views on basketball related matters. There have been a number of instances where these sites have been used for criticism of players, coaches and officials and even cases of bullying and this is unacceptable as far as the club is concerned.
Please be responsible in your use of these mediums and be aware that if inappropriate material is brought to the club’s attention it will result in disciplinary action against the person or persons involved.
While often only a passing comment these items can cause considerable concern for other parties involved.
