TCYBA recognizes the significance of parental influence and provides guidelines through the Tri City Youth Basketball Association Parents Code of Conduct. This code emphasizes important principles such as respecting a child's autonomy in participating in sports and fostering an environment where enjoyment and personal growth take precedence over winning.  Please make yourself familiar with the code of conduct and visit links to further resources.

I will not force my child to participate in sports.

I will remember that my child plays sport for his or her enjoyment, not for mine.

I will teach my child that doing one’s best is as important as winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game/event.

I will never ridicule or yell at my child for making a mistake or losing a competition.

I will remember that children learn best by example. I will applaud good plays/performances by both my child’s team and their opponents.

I will never question the official’s judgement or honesty in public.

I will support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from children’s sporting events.
