A: Coaches bear the responsibility for teaching players to strive for success while playing fairly, observing the laws of the game, and the highest levels of sportsmanship. Coaches must lead by example. Your players will follow your example. My best suggestion is for the coach to have a code of ethics for themselves and their team.
