Good spectator behaviour
The Willetton Way PARENTS CODE:
* ENJOY YOUR CHILD'S PARTICIPATION
* SUPPORT YOUR TEAM POSITIVELY
* RESPECT MATCH OFFICIALS
It's timely to remind all parents who spectate games that you are setting the example, not only for your own child, but to other peoples' children as well, on how to be a good sport. The definition of good sport differs from parent to parent, but does not include swearing at kids, coaches, other parents, referees.

Crime in and around the stadium
Parents and players and spectators, there have been a number of instances of theft in the past few months, both inside the stadium, and in the car park where cars have been broken into. While we have multiple cameras inside the stadium that can assist with police investigations, please note that external footage of the public car park outside is limited, and it is best not to leave valuables unattended (inside or outside the stadium). We have asked the Canning Security Services to step up their vigilance in the car park.
Abuse of referees
Players and parents and coaches please note that if there is an issue with the quality of refereeing during a game, they must bring their concerns to the referee supervisor on duty DURING the game so that appropriate action can be taken during a game. In addition, official complaints in writing can also be lodged, but it is in everyone's interests for referees to be coached on how best to referee while in a game.

Mouthguards - wear them!
Willetton Basketball strongly recommends that ALL basketball players (adults and children) play basketball wearing mouthguards. A mouthguard can protect against chipped, broken or lost teeth, bone damage to the jaw, or tissue damage. A custom fitted mouthguard is ideal, but a $10 basic guard available from a pharmacy or our canteen will give basic protection. Basketball can be high impact, and a mouthguard could protect against very expensive dental repair work.
