Code of Behaviour

Playford Aquatic Club Competitor Code of Behaviour

For Swimmers

(Derrived from the Swimming Australia Code of Conduct)

  • Play by the rules.
  • Never argue with an official. Always use the appropriate rules and guidelines to resolve a dispute.
  • Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials and sledging other players, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable or permitted behaviours in any sport.
  • Work equally hard for yourself and/or your team.
  • Be a good sport. Applaud all good performances whether they are made by your team or the opposition.
  • Treat all participants in your sport as you like to be treated. Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another competitor.
  • Cooperate with your coach, team mates and opponents.
  • Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please parents and coaches.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

In addition to these Club rules, we insist that our swimmers:

  • Abide by the rules, regulations and policies of Swimming SA, Swimming Australia, the relevant District Swimming Association and the relevant club, including Swimming Australia’s Anti-Doping, Member and Child Welfare and Privacy Policies (available at www.swimming.org.au)

 

For Parent(s) / Guardian(s)

  • Remember that children participate in sport for their enjoyment, not yours.
  • Encourage children to participate, do not force them.
  • Focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing.
  • Encourage children always to play according to the rules and to settle disagreements without resorting to hostility or violence.
  • Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a competition.
  • Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances and skilful plays by all participants.
  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities.
  • Respect officials’ decisions and teach children to do likewise.
  • Show appreciation for coaches, officials and administrators. Without them, your child could not participate.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
