2. Has a personal relationship (e.g. a personal friend of the family) with a player or players in the age group in which the application is made.

NOTE: A conflict of interest does not prevent a coach being appointed to an age group, it is simply an acknowledgement.

Therefore, there is an emphasis on the need to continually update your existing knowledge and skills, as well as acquiring new ones. Such skills are essential to progress the Brisbane Capitals performance standards across all age groups, and are also important considerations of representative team appointments.
