Harassment is a form of discrimination and Badminton Ontario is committed to providing an environment free from harassment on the basis of gender, ethnic or racial origin, sexual orientation, age, marital status, religion, political belief, disability or economic status. Harassment on the basis of these grounds is a form of discrimination that is prohibited by legislation throughout Canada. This policy applies to directors, officers, organizers, coaches, officials, athletes, managers, volunteers, parents and other members of Badminton Ontario.

Actions may be misinterpreted and lead to allegations of misconduct or impropriety. • Do not attempt to exert undue influence over the player in order to obtain personal benefit or reward. • Do not abuse athletes, other coaches or officials in any manner. • Do not divulge confidential information relating to a player to a third party without the expressed approval of the player concerned. • Do not drink alcohol or smoke while coaching. • Take all reasonable steps to ensure that a safe playing environment is provided to athletes. • Do not in any way misrepresent coaching qualifications, affiliations, or professional competence to any athlete or in any publication, broadcast, or seminar. • Do not be alone with an athlete in changing rooms or hotel rooms.

Ontario Junior Ranking System OJRS Objectives and Purpose:   The OJRS will track tournament results for provincial and national circuit events and is designed for players, their parents and their coaches to: • provide feedback on standings and progress throughout the season; • provide a tool in which players can set and measure goals; • provide a means to discover and develop among their peers; • motivate and prepare players in their development; • encourage higher levels of participation and player development.   The OJRS is also used by several organizations as a guide to: • qualify and seed players for circuit tournaments; • identify developing players suited for special programmes such as High Performance events; • work with product and financial sponsors to qualify player development and recognize player achievement.   Ranking Guidelines - Summarized • Ranking is based on Best 4 results with at least 1 result from a higher circuit of the player’s competitive class. (Example: National Junior Elite Series event) • Best 4 results for each singles, doubles and mixed event must have been played in the last 12 months. • Points are awarded for each successive round played in the Main rounds and ‘B’ or consolation rounds. • Tournament base points are weighted against having at least 8 top ranked players of the competitive class. • Base points are published as a Points Grid accessible through the B.On website under Junior Ranking. • Tournaments that are ranked must be sanctioned and listed by B.On and must report and publish tournament results using Tournament Planner software.   For more information on the OJRS including some FAQ, please go online to the B.On website at www.badmintonontario.ca under Junior Rankings. Queries—please email JrRanking@badmintonontario.ca.
