Athlete Code




The purpose of a code of conduct for athletes is to establish a consistent expectation for athletes’ behavior. By signing this code of conduct, I agree to the following statements: 


 I will respect and show courtesy to my teammates and coaches at all times.  

 I will demonstrate good sportsmanship at all practices and meets.  

 I will set a good example of behavior and work ethic for my younger teammates.  

 I will be respectful of my teammates’ feelings and personal space. Swimmers who exhibit sexist, racist, homophobic, or otherwise inappropriate behavior will be faced with consequences.  

 I will attend all team meetings and training sessions, unless I am excused by my coach.  

 I will show respect for all facilities and other property (including locker rooms) used during practices, competitions, and team activities.  

 I will refrain from foul language, violence, behavior deemed dishonest, offensive, or illegal.  

 If I disagree with an official’s call, I will talk with my coach and not approach the official directly.  

 I will obey all of USA Swimming’s rules and codes of conduct.  


I understand that if I violate this code of conduct, I will be subject to disciplinary action determined by my coaches and the swim team Manager.
