Campolindo Cabana Club Disciplinary Policy and Procedure
A "disciplinary problem" is understood as behavior by a swimmer which violates the Campolindo Cabana Club code of conduct and Article VII in the Swim Team By-Laws and which is otherwise disruptive of swim team activities. The coaching staff has the authority to apply disciplinary measures at their discretion within the coaching guidelines established by the swim team board. These guidelines forbid the coaching staff from communicating with parents about disciplinary problems. A "disciplinary problem" arises when the head coach judges that disciplinary measures applied by the coaching staff to a particular swimmer have not been effective and submits a written description of the "disciplinary problem" to the swim team board. A "disciplinary problem" also arises when the coaching staff witnesses a deliberate act of physical or verbal violence or endangerment affecting another swimmer, or have reasonable cause to believe such occurred. In such a case the head coach is required to submit a written report to the Swim Team Board. A swim team family parent who witnessed such an event is also entitled to submit a written report describing the act of violence or endangerment. The "disciplinary problem" becomes a board matter when the board receives a written "disciplinary problem" report.
Upon receipt of the first "disciplinary problem" report for a swimmer, the swim team board director or a board member designated for this purpose will contact the writer of the report for further details and clarification, and, if the report is not withdrawn, will inform the swimmer's parents about the disciplinary problem. The disciplinary problem report will be filed and its existence will be noted in the minutes of the next board meeting.
Upon receipt of a second "disciplinary problem" report for a swimmer, the swim team board director or a board member designated for this purpose will again investigate the report, and, if not withdrawn, will inform the board members and submit a written complaint within five days to the swimmer's parents which includes a warning that a third "disciplinary problem" report will result in suspension for the remainder of the season. If the second report involves violence or endangerment, the swimmer is given an automatic 1 week suspension from all swim team activities. Upon receipt of a third "disciplinary problem" report for a swimmer, the swim team board director will call an emergency board meeting to which the parent/swimmer are invited but not required to attend. The board will review the "disciplinary problem" report and vote on whether or not to accept it. If the quorum for a full board meeting is met and a majority of the full board members as defined by the by-laws accepts the report, the swimmer is automatically suspended for the remainder of the season. If two or more of the disciplinary problem reports involved violence or endangerment, the swimmer is expelled permanently from membership in the swim team. A swimmer's problem report count is reset to zero at the beginning of the next swim season if he or she remains eligible for membership.
