Coaches Code of Ethics

Professional Coaches Code of Ethics, full version, Revised August 2018

The Professional Coaches’ Code of Ethics has been developed to aid coaches in achieving a level of behaviour that will allow them to assist their athletes in becoming well‐rounded, self‐confident and productive human beings. The athlete/coach relationship is a privileged one and professional coaches play a critical role in the personal as well as athletic development of their athletes.

To create and maintain a positive and successful learning environment, all stakeholders involved in our sport (athletes, parents, coaches, officials and volunteers) must share a common vision and understanding of their role as their actions ultimately contribute to, or undermine, the existence of a positive skating environment. All Skate Canada Professional Coaches are responsible for establishing and maintaining ethical coaching behaviour.
