    NWAL Code of Conduct

    NORTHWEST AQUATIC LEAGUE 

    PARENT/COACH CODE OF CONDUCT

    Children’s sports are supposed to be fun-for the children. Unfortunately, many parent, fans and coaches don’t realize that their actions, whether
    verbal or nonverbal, can have a lasting emotional effect on children. Too many children are leaving sports activities because the fun is unfairly
    taken away by adults. This following Code of Conduct is for parents and spectators to abide by at every practice, meet and invitational.

    Preamble

    The essential elements of character building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles:
    trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, and caring and good citizenship. The highest potential of sports is achieved when competition

    reflects these “six pillars of character.”

    I therefore agree:

    1. I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the sport is for youth, not adults.

    2. I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the safety of others.
    3. I will learn the rules of the sport and the policies of the league.

    4. I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by
    demonstrating positive support for all swimmers, coaches, officials and spectators at every meet, practice, or other sporting event.

    5. I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsman-like conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing and taunting;
    refusing to shake hands; or using profane language or gestures.

    6. I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and well-being of the athletes.
    7. I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.

    8. I will demand that my child treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.

    9. I will teach my child that doing one’s best is more important than winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a race or his/her performance.

    10. I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard, and make my child feel like a winner every time.
    11. I will never ridicule or yell at my child or other participants for making a mistake or losing a competition.

    12. I will emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit my child over winning. I will also de-emphasize meets and competition in the lower age groups. 

    13. I will promote the emotional and physical well-being of the athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for my child to win.

    14. I will respect the officials and their authority during meets and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches or officials at the meets, and will take time to speak with them at an agreed upon time and place.

    15. I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco, vapes, and alcohol and I will refrain from their use at all sports events.

    16. I will refrain from coaching my child or other players during meets and practices, unless I am one of the official coaches of the team.

    I also agree that if I fail to abide by the aforementioned rules and guidelines, I will be subject to disciplinary action that could include, but is not limited to the following:

    Verbal warning by official, head coach and/or head of league organization 


    Written warning

    Parental meet/Invitational suspension with written documentation of incident kept on file by organizations involved. 


    Meet forfeit through the official or coach

    Parental season suspension.

    The basis for this code of conduct is produced by the National Youth Sports Safety Foundation

    VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

    We can't run our meets without our parent volunteers.  Each season we have a certain amount of volunteer hours that must be met by each swimmer family.   This year's volunteer deposit is $250 and the UN-DATED deposit check must be submitted before registration is considered complete or your swimmer will not be allowed to participate.  If all hours are completed, the deposit check will be returned upon email request sent to [email protected].  If no request is made, checks will be shredded at the end of the swim season.

    FOST does not want to deposit your volunteer deposit check. What we REALLY NEED is your help volunteering during the swim season.

    Each family will be required to complete a certain number of volunteer shifts based on the total number of registered swimmers and shifts needed to cover the Black/Green meet, five dual meets, and Divisionals.  The required number will be communicated at the beginning of each swim season. For everyone's safety, if you are volunteering for an on deck shift (for ex, timers, scribes, runners) children may not be with you on deck if they are not a registered swimmer. Once a session has begun it must be completed, even in the event of a delay, for the session to count towards the requirement.

    There will also be additional volunteers needed for the Divisional Meet and Invitational Meets. Once we receive information regarding those hosting those meets, signups will be shared.  

    The Volunteer sessions will be available for signup through this website each week before the meet.
