                             Legal Responsibilities of the Coach

  Coaches have at least ten important duties when carrying out their activities. While not
  exhaustive, fulfilling these duties will substantially reduce the chances of a successful claim
  of negligence against the coach.

  In area such as the provision or supervision of first aid or other injury management
  procedures, the "careful parent test" may be applied; that is, the way the coach would act in
  the same situation with his/her own child.

5) Ten Important Duties

1. Provide a safe environment
Facilities and equipment must be safe for both the users and the others involved in the
competition. Adverse weather conditions must also be taken into consideration during
competition and training sessions.

2. Activities must be adequately planned
Impaired learning ability and injury may be the result of unplanned training sessions. Using
progressions in the teaching of new skills, especially potentially dangerous skills, is imperative.

3. Athletes must be evaluated for injury and incapacity
Athletes with an injury or incapacity should not be expected to perform any potentially harmful
activity. No players should ever be forced to take part in any activity that they do not wish to
take part in. Individual differences must be accounted for.

4. Young players should not be mismatched
Young players should be matched not only according to age, but also height, weight and
maturity. Skill levels and experience should also be considered.

5. Safe and proper equipment should be provided
Existing codes and standards for equipment should be met and all equipment should be
kept in good order. It should always be adequately repaired so that it is safe to use at all

6. Players must be warned of the inherent risks of the sport
The inherent risks of the any sport can only be legally accepted by the participants if they
know, understand and appreciate those risks. In some situations, even such a warning may
not be enough: for example, where young people are involved in a school supervised

7. Activities must be closely supervised
Adequate supervision is necessary to ensure the practice environment is as safe as possible.
Each sport will have its own specific requirements in this regard.

8. Coaches should know first aid
Coaches should have knowledge of basic procedures and keep up to date on them. Coaches
should know the following procedures for managing injuries: TOTAPS (Talk, Observe, Touch,
Active Movement, Passive Movement, Skills) and RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression and
Elevation) (see Injury Record Form in this Kit). Coaches should ensure that appropriate
medical assistance is available and at the very least should ensure that nothing is done which
could aggravate any injury.

9. Develop clear, written rules for training and general conduct
Many injuries are the result of fooling around in change rooms and training venues. Clear
written rules should be developed for general conduct and behavior in such situations.

10. Coaches should keep adequate records.
Adequate records are useful aids to planning and are essential in all cases of injury. Record
cards should be kept on all players including relevant general and medical information and
progress reports. Injury reports (not diagnosis) should be made as soon as possible after each
injury that occurs, (see Injury Record Form in this Kit)

         Winning is not everything! We all like to win and it is nice to win, however!
                   Winning for the wrong reasons will not develop players.
              Every player must get the same amount of playing time available.
           Every player should get the same amount of game starts and finishes.
                    Allow players to play in all positions and support them.
                Keep a log of the playing times and positions for each game.
               The coach will lead by example; the referee’s decision is final.
The coach needs to look for the good things players achieve in all players, praise good will do
Advise the players that we do not mind if they make a mistake, as long as they learn and look
                                 at correcting the mistake for
                                the next time. Learn by doing!
