Action's code of conduct

Participants

  • Respect your fellow team members and their goals.
  • Be committed to your team and your club. Leaving your team half way through a year affects the whole team and reduces their chances at competitions.
  • Have consistent attendance at training sessions (no more than 20% of classes can be missed). If there is a problem with a date, reasonable notice is to be given to the Team Manager and the Coach.
  • Co-operate with your Coach and cadets.
  • Respect your Coach’s decision with regard to team selections and/or movement within a team.
  • Verbal abuse towards coaching staff, team managers and/or fellow team mates will not be tolerated.
  • Any concerns or problems that you may be experiencing should be brought to the attention of the team manager or coach during a break or after the completion of a class NOT during a class.
  • Work equally hard for yourself and your team. Your team’s performance will benefit and so will you.
  • Treat your fellow team mates as you would like to be treated.
  • Be prepared for class. This means wear a leotard and have your hair tied back.
  • Do not wear jewellery to class as these can catch on apparatus and cause injury.

Parents

  • Encourage your child to attend all classes.
  • Have your child be punctual to classes.
  • Respect the Coach’s decision regarding team placements and selection.
  • Be aware that Coaches may make changes to team selections and/or positions throughout the year. These are not fixed at the beginning of the year and are subject to change dependent upon your child’s attendance, performance and behaviour during the year.
  • Remember that children learn best by example. Applaud the efforts put in by all teams and members.
  • Remember to praise your child for what they can do well and not criticise for what they can’t.
  • Discuss concerns or problems with the team manager/club management as early as possible. It can’t be fixed if the club does not know it is broken.
  • Be committed to the team process, removing your child from teams does change the team dramatically and affects the clubs presentation at competitions. Give plenty of notice if a child needs to leave.
  • Show appreciation of the Team Managers, Costume Managers and officials. These people volunteer their time to the successful running of the club.
  • Verbal abuse towards coaching staff, team managers, volunteers and/ or fellow team mates will not be tolerated.
