Team Philosophy

FEC Stingray
TEAM PHILOSOPHY AND GOALS


The philosophy and goal of the Fulton-El Camino Recreation and Park District, its coaches, the Valley Foothill Competitive Aquatic League, and the Northern California Swim League is to promote the finest recreational aquatic programs with an enjoyable spectator and participant experience for all. We are guided by the following goal: “within the parameters of the League, an individual is encouraged to grow to his/her full potential.”


In addition, we are guided by the following Northern California Swim League objectives:


  • To be basically recreational in nature and to promote good sportsmanship, physical fitness and team spirit.

     
  • To promote the participation during the course of the swim season of all swimmers, regardless of swimming proficiency, thereby enabling the maximum number of swimmers to enjoy a well rounded, recreational program.

     
  • To recognize the need for and seek to maintain to the maximum extent possible, competitive parity among the teams participating in the League.


If we have done our job as a department in achieving our goals, what will be remembered by the participants will not be the number of first place finishes. It is our goal that participants will look back and remember the fun they had at practices and meets, the special friends they made, the excitement of the meets and competition, and the successes and disappointments that were shared with fellow teammates, coaches and parents.


BEHAVIOR CONDUCT EXPECTATIONS & RULES


In an effort to abide by the Stingray Philosophy, ALL Swimmers and Guardians will have signed (upon program registration) and are expected to follow the FEC Stingray Code of Conduct. If at any time a participant does not adhere to the code, corrective steps will be set, as it pertains to the severity of action. If violations are continuously disruptive to the quality of the Stingray program, is harmful to another person, or destructive to FEC property; swimmer risks expulsion from team without monetary refund.


If Adult (guardian or their guests) behavior is disruptive to program at any point during practices or meets, hosting pool representative may ask them to leave premises. Representative includes FEC Staff, Meet Official, Booster Board member, etc. If behavior is anticipated to become physically violent, they are requested to call 911. Guardians or their guests violating the behavior policy may warrant permanent expulsion from ALL Stingray activities, with the possibility of expelling their swimmer from the team without monetary refund.
