Qualifications for Coaching: Coaches can only speak to their player through the fence, they will not be allowed onto the court. Coaching must be during that court’s change over with the flow of the match, meaning that the coach will only have the 90 seconds the players are allowed for their full break during the game change over, and 2 minutes on the set change over. Please remember that the players do not receive a 90 second break during the 1st and 2nd game of the set and therefore coaching should not interfere with the flow of the match, as mentioned above.
Coaches will be provided with the Code of Conduct and must also sign stating that they have read the code and will follow its regulations. Coaches that are reprimanded twice for disobeying the above actions will not be allowed to coach again during the championships. If there is a persistent problem where the coach feels assistance is needed they should have a team manager find an official to handle the situation.
I hereby certify that I have read and reviewed the Coaches Code of Conduct and will adhere to the above regulations for coaching.
