Top Tips

  1. Check your posts for sense, accuracy before posting  – and read posts carefully before replying
  2. Think carefully about your use of language and tone – the written word can be misinterpreted
  3. Avoid posting when you’re stressed, tired, angry, upset – or indeed over-excited – as coaches we know the risks of this.
