Code of Conduct


AWAKE Basketball has implemented the following Code of Conduct centered around the 5 values we stand on: Commitment, Communication, Accountability, Family and Education Through Experience.  This Code of Conduct presented by AWAKE basketball sets the expectations for our Staff members, our Players, our Parent/Legal Guardians, and our Fans. 

  • Consistency is key, if you don’t make the commitment, you will be left to accept the results, “you are who you can guard.” 

  • Attendance is mandatory for all practices, competitions, and events, unless there is a valid reason.  It is encouraged to be at least 30 minutes early for practices and 1 hour early for games, this will ensure the athlete is fully prepared to compete.  Be sure to account for travel time. 

  • Refrain from scheduling outside activities, including vacations that conflict with practices, competitions, or events.  We are a TEAM,  and one individual missing impacts the success of the entire team. 

  • I agree not to participate in any other organization outside of AWAKE Basketball which is in direct conflict with practices, leagues, and/or tournaments with the team I have committed to unless approved by AWAKE Leadership.


  • Respect the Coaches decisions on how practices, games, and activities are operated,  trust the player development, and commit to the process. Persistent disruptive behavior during practices, games, and activities will have a penalty that is decided by your Coach.

  • Respect Officials - treat contest officials with respect; don't complain about or argue with official calls or decisions during or after an athletic event.
