Göteborg Basketball Festival PSEA Code of Conduct Commitment for Referees
Your status as guest at the festival starts at the airport when arriving to the festival as a referee and concludes when you leave the festival at the airport. All time in between you are expected to abide by this PSEA Code of Conduct or face exclusion out of Göteborg Basketball Festival at your own expense (including accommodation and transportation) and face possible criminal penalties in accordance with Swedish law.
Göteborg Basketball Festival commits to aid any criminal investigation against you for any potential wrongdoing as we expect impeccable moral standards for every single referee taking part in the Göteborg Basketball Festival.
As a referee I commit to the following while being a guest of Göteborg Basketball Festival:
- I understand that I as a referee have been entrusted with a position of authority and it is unacceptable to make anyone feel unsafe, objectified, sexually harassed, belittled, or not respected while attending Göteborg Basketball Festival. This applies to all behavior on and off the court.
- If I see a referee and/or other guest of Göteborg Basketball Festival behave incorrectly it is my duty to report it immediately, including if it is a fellow referee.
- I understand that Göteborg Basketball Festival welcomes all genders, gender identities/expressions, sexual orientations, ages, ethnicities, religions, and individuals living with disability under the Swedish Discrimination Act.
- All referees at Göteborg Basketball Festival are representatives of our organization and reputation. Göteborg Basketball Festival will not accept any sort of sexual exploitation or abuse from a referee towards another guest at a festival.
- I, as a referee, am held to a higher standard of conduct than other guests due to my authority position. I am the custodian of trust during games, and I am aware that the players are expecting me to facilitate and provide service in a respectful manner.
- If I ever find myself unsure in a situation and/or do not know what is culturally appropriate in Sweden I will consult management before I act. The excuse of “I did not know” will never be acceptable once a wrongdoing has been committed. I understand that it is my responsibility as a referee to actively seek guidance when unsure of what is culturally appropriate.
- I receive payment for my services on court but understand that I am considered a referee for the full duration of Göteborg Basketball Festival, regardless of if I am on or off the court. Hence, I will always conduct myself in a respectful manner and in accordance with my personal commitment to this Prevention of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA) Code of Conduct.
