Saw a case of this a few weeks ago. Thought they were clever by speaking in a foreign language. Opponent complains that coaching might be going on but it was not in English.
So the supervisor privately asks the complainant who spoke, for how long, etc. Then asks the same of the kid allegedly being coached and his parents/family.
Funnily enough the kid and the family allegedly involved in coaching gave two totally different accounts of what was said, who said it and for how long. Not enough to code them for coaching but enough for the supervisor to make his point that they had all but been caught. They didn't say another word for the rest of the match.
