Swimmer’s Code of Conduct
Make every team practice, meet participation and activity an opportunity to learn.
Represent VSS with excellence, respect, team spirit, and politeness.
Follow the directions of the coaching staff, respect official instructions and designated chaperones. Disrespect or failure to obey instructions will not be tolerated from any athlete.
Practice good sportsmanship at all times to the team members, coaches, competitors, officials, parents and for all facilities and properties used during practices, competitions and team activities.
Be punctual and arrive on time for all practices, meets and team events. Pool time is very valuable.
Attend all team meetings, practice sessions and swim meets (if registered for meets), unless excused by staff or have made special arrangements with a coach.
Swimmers must notify the coach, in advance, if they are planning to leave practice or swim meets early
Wear VSS team caps at all practices and all swim meets. This displays team pride and also makes it easier to identify swimmers on the blocks and in the water.
Pay attention and follow all of the coach’s instructions
completely and exactly. If clarifications are needed, ask questions politely.
Swimmers are expected to respect each other. Fighting, intentional touching or striking another athlete will subject the swimmer to the most severe discipline.
Violation of the Swimmer’s Code of Conduct
The swimmer will be given a verbal warning.
The swimmer will be pulled out of practice in addition to a verbal warning and the coach will contact the parent.
Before coming back to practice, the swimmer will need to be accompanied by a parent and the parent stay for the duration of practice for four (4) consecutive practices.
If the swimmer continues his/her bad behavior, he/she will be suspended for one (1) week. (There will be NO prorated fee for monthly dues). If the swimmer’s disciplinary problem continues, the swimmer and parent will meet with the coach to discuss the problem further.
