WRIGHT COUNTY WAVE SWIM CLUB PARENT AGREEMENT
As parent(s), I (we) will:
•Practice teamwork with other parents, swimmers and coaches by supporting the values of discipline, loyalty, commitment, and hard work.
•Support swimmers, coaches, and other parents with positive communication and actions.
•Support my swimmer in attending practices regularly, plus facilitate attendance at meets.
•Be supportive of the team’s training and technical philosophies. I will bring any questions or concerns about training directly to my child’s coach. If need be, I/we will communicate with our child’s coach - via email or appointment - outside of practice time.
•Refrain from disrupting practice in any way. Not coach or instruct any swimmer at a practice or meet (from the stands or any other area)
•Maintain self-control at all times and demonstrate good sportsmanship by conducting ourselves in a manner that earns the respect of our child, other swimmers, parents, officials, and the coaches at the meets and practices.
•Provide my child with sensible nutrition before and immediately following practice, and during competition. I understand that swimmers have a special need for high intake of healthy calories.
•Volunteer for jobs as needed at all WAVE home swim meets.
•Use no abusive language toward coaches, officials, swimmers or family; and will not question meet officials' decisions, but instead direct all questions to a Wright County Wave coach.
•Wright County Wave athletes and parents are reminded that when traveling on trips, participating in meets, and attending other team-related functions, you are representing the Wright County Wave. Athlete and parent behavior must positively reflect the high standards of the Wright County Wave and USA Swimming.
Failure to comply with team rules as set forth in this document may result in disciplinary action. Such discipline may include but is not be limited to:
1. Dismissal from practice.
2. Dismissal from a trip; disqualification from future team travel meets.
3. Disqualification from competition.
4. Dismissal from the team.
I have read and discussed with my athlete(s) the Wright County Wave Swimmer Code of Conduct. I will abide by the Wright County Wave Parent Contract as well as USA Swimming rules and regulations, as will any family member or friend or guardian accompanying my child at practice or a meet. I understand that failure to abide by the guidelines outlined above may result in the termination of my swimmer's membership with the Wright County Wave.
