Codes of Conduct

The Montrose Marlins Swim Club requires every swimmer and responsible parent(s) to sign and honor the Montrose Marlins Code of Conduct. Families will sign these codes of conduct during the annual registration period.

MONTROSE MARLINS SWIMMER CODE OF CONDUCT

As a swimmer of the Montrose Marlins program, I will conduct myself in the following manner.

___1. I understand that I am learning the skills and concepts of competitive swimming in an effective and respectful environment. Montrose Marlins coaches will provide a role in the program for every swimmer, but I will not be guaranteed equality, as every swimmer participates at a different level according to skill and commitment. Decisions concerning swimmers and their level of participation or placement into specific swim groups are solely the responsibility of the coaches.

___2. My attendance at practice and swim meets is welcomed and anticipated. I will conduct myself in a respectful manner by:

A. Showing appropriate sportsmanship toward all teams, swimmers, parents, fans, officials, coaches, and board members. I will refrain from using loud or profane language.

B. Participating as a member of a unit, showing respect for the team effort.

C. Accepting decisions made by coaches and board.

D. Discontinuing behavior deemed unacceptable at the request of board members, coaches, swimmers, officials or other fans. If I fail to honor such a request, it is within the rights of the Montrose Marlins board or any hosting organization’s staff to request that I leave the swimming area or the building.

E. Being concerned primarily with my own swimming, leaving control of other people at an event to the appropriate officials.

F. Showing respect for other swimmers, the coaches, and the officials.

G. Realizing that successful sportsmanship at a meet and at practice depends, to a large measure, on a swimmer’s actions. Thus a swimmer is courteous on the deck, in the locker room, in the pool and on the Montrose Recreation District premises as well as during away meets.

H. Making every honest effort to win a contest, but avoid deliberate actions which could cause harm to other swimmers.

I.  Maintaining acceptable standards of personal appearance.

 J. Showing respect for the facilities where practices and meets are held.

 

 

MONTROSE MARLINS PARENT CODE OF CONDUCT

As a parent(s)/guardian(s) of a member of the Montrose Marlins program, I (we) will conduct myself (ourselves) in the manner described below.

___1. I understand that I am paying for my child to learn the skills and concepts of competitive swimming in an effective and respectful environment. Montrose Marlins coaches will provide a role in the program for every swimmer, but my child will not be guaranteed equality, as every swimmer participates at a different level according to skill and commitment. Decisions concerning swimmers and their level of participation or placement into specific swim groups are solely the responsibility of the coaches.

___2. My attendance at practice and swim meets is welcomed and anticipated. While attending swim practices and meets, I will conduct myself in a respectful manner by:

A.     Showing appropriate sportsmanship toward all teams, swimmers, parents, fans, officials, coaches, and board members.

B.     Not using profane language.

C.     Being patient and supportive of all the swimmers.

D.     Accepting decisions made by Marlin’s coaches and the Marlin’s board.

E.       Discontinuing behavior deemed unacceptable at the request of board members, coaches, or officials. If I fail to honor such a request, it is within the rights of the Montrose Marlins board or any hosting organization’s staff to request that I leave the swimming area or the building.

___3. If I have a grievance, I will not discuss my grievance with coaches or board members during practice times or on days of competition. I agree to follow the Grievance Policy and Procedures as outlined in the Montrose Marlins Handbook. I will abide by the grievance resolution decisions that are made as described in the Handbook’s procedures.

___4. I understand coaches are not responsible for my child before and after practices and at swim meets. My child must remain at the practice or competition site until released by their coach. If I remove my child from a competition site or practice prior to being released, I realize it is considerate to notify the coach so the coach knows my child is safe. 

___5. I am responsible for my child’s conduct. I realize coaches are not baby sitters and parents are ultimately responsible for their children's behavior. I know coaches will contact me if any consistent problem with my child arises, and I will contact the coach if I have any concerns about my child’s conduct or involvement with the Montrose Marlins Swim Club.

___6. I agree that I will be financially responsible for all fees assessed relating to my child’s participation in Montrose Marlins programs. If I remove my child from the Club before the end of the month, I am still obligated to pay my child’s full monthly fee assessment.

___7.  I understand that by ending my participation with the Marlins through violation of this agreement that my child is not guaranteed a spot back on the Montrose Marlins Organization
