Your role as coach at Carina Redsox is an important one. To help you get started we have created this guide which aims to answer all of your initial questions. Please take the time to read through the information provided.
Duty of care
This is the primary responsibility of a coach at any level of competition and in any organisation. All coaches are expected to be familiar with the Club’s Child Safe and Code of Behaviour policies which can be found on the policies page of this website. While we expect full commitment from all players throughout the season, there will be times that other things in their life will need to be prioritised and it is important that a commonsense approach be taken to this. If you have concerns about a particular player but are not sure how to deal with it, please speak to your fellow coaches or a Committee member about the best approach to take.
