Swimmers are expected to behave respectfully toward coaches, peers, parents, officials, and facilities. The safety of our athletes is our first concern, which means that coaches must maintain discipline in a structured environment. Furthermore, swimmers learn and are best able to enjoy their experience in a controlled setting. It is not fair for one swimmer’s misbehavior to interfere with the progress of the rest of the group. Therefore, the Tiburones Club has adopted the following policy regarding misbehavior:
• 1st offense: Coach speaks to swimmer and explains expectations and infraction.
• 2nd offense: Coach sits swimmer out for a period of the practice.
• 3rd offense: Coach removes swimmer from practice and calls parents.
• 4th offense: TIBU administration may remove swimmer from the program. In this instance, no refund will be granted.
