Parent Standards

Parent Standards of Conduct

The Westside Aquaducks expect parents to:

  • Communicate openly and positively with swimmers and Coaches, emphasizing goal-setting and focusing on the performance expectations.

  • Meet with Coaches and swimmers during appropriate times to discuss any concerns.

  • Positive reinforcement of all swimmers, Coaches and other parents, in all situations - demonstrating team spirit and team loyalty.

  • Get involved in organizing and running meets and other team events.

  • Check your e-mail, as well as the team website, regularly for updates and schedule changes.

  • Abide by all Pool Safety Rules.

  • At meets, direct questions or concerns regarding decisions made by meet Officials to a member of the Westside Coaching staff. Address Officials via our Coaching staff only.

  • NO coaching your children at practice or during meets – this is the Coaches’ job.

  • NO interrupting or confronting Coaches on the pool deck during practice or meets.

  • NO abusive language toward Coaches, swimmers, parents, Officials, or your own children.

  • NO behavior that brings discredit or disruption to our swimmers and/or our organization.

  • Understand that, should you conduct yourself in such a way that brings discredit or discord to Westside Aquaducks or USA Swimming, you voluntarily subject yourself to disciplinary action. Westside Aquaducks maintains the right to terminate any membership with/without cause in the interest of the team’s vision, mission and objectives.

  • Acknowledge that while you are the expert on your child, your child's Coach is the expert on your child's swimming and should be the contact person for any and all questions/concerns regarding your child's swimming.
