Violations of Hong Kong International Tennis Academy Code of Conduct for Players

Players breaking the code of conduct will be subject to penalty, which will be determined by the academy coach on a case-by-case basis. The coach, subject to the review and approval of the Academy Director, may also ban a player from participating in all academy activities for violations of the code of conduct. This sanction may be imposed as soon as the coach notifies the player of the violation, gives the player a chance to explain what happened, and determines that a sanction is justified after consideration of the player’s statement. Violations resulting in permanent dismissal are reviewed by the Coaches Committee.
