As a Member of the San Diego Aquatic Club, I agree to the following policies:
All swimmers competing for and representing San Diego Aquatic Club will conduct themselves in a manner that reflects positive credit to the individual and San Diego Aquatic Club.

  • No illegal use of drugs, alcohol, or tobacco will be allowed.
  • No unlawful acts will be allowed.
  • Swimmers must comply with the instructions of the coaching staff.
  • As a guest at a host facility, conduct will be subject to the rules and regulations of such host.
  • Swimmers must pay for any and all damages due to misconduct.
  • I will commit to the Team Pledge, Training Guidelines, and Goals.
  • I will attend and conscientiously apply myself to all required workouts, swim meets, and meetings, unless excused by the coaches.
  • I will display respect, honesty, and sportsmanship toward coaches, officials, administrators, parents, and fellow competitors.
  • I will refrain from any activity that would detract from a positive image of the program.
  • I will maintain a lifestyle that will allow proper sleep, rest, and nutrition necessary for maximum performance.
  • I will display a positive and supportive attitude toward the program, coaches and teammates.
  • I will not participate in any conduct that is considered detrimental to the team as determined by the coaching staff of SDAC.

Specific to Team Travel

  • During travel, swimmers must be present at bed check time as determined and announced by the coaching staff.
  • Any behavior that is disorderly or harmful will result in an immediate trip home at the swimmers expense. Dismissal from the San Diego Aquatic Club will be at the discretion of the San Diego Aquatic Club after inquiry and deliberation of findings and recommendations.
  • Male and female swimmers may not be in each others rooms (siblings excluded) on any team trip unless supervised by a designated club official.
  • During team travel, swimmers must provide a copy of their medical insurance card (front and back) to the coaching staff if unaccompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Parents Responsibilities
SDAC depends on the support and commitment of our swimmers and parents. We recommend the following to enhance your experience at SDAC.

  • Encourage your swimmer to maintain a log book of his times for his or her events as they will be needed to enter meets and monitor their improvement.
  • Please help the coaching staff in reinforcing safety concerns around the locker room and pool deck. Well behaved swimmers allow our staff to focus on their coaching and not discipline problems.
  • Focus on the best for your swimmer. Encourage and praise your swimmers hard work and accomplishments, but remember that they are children. Don't hold your child to expectations beyond his abilities or desires.
  • Monitor your financial obligations to help our club maintain its financial budgets. If any situation arises that prevents a familys ability to pay, please immediately contact the business manager for possible arrangements.
  • I will not participate in any conduct that is considered detrimental to the team as determined by the coaching staff of SDAC.

SDAC Disciplinary Rule: Three Strike Rule
SDAC depends on the support and commitment of our swimmers and parents. We recommend the following to enhance your experience at SDAC.

  1. Warning to the child about the questionable behavior.
  2. Warning to the child and the parent/guardian about the specific behavior and consequence.
  3. Suspension or expulsion from the team.

If a child is disruptive during their workout, they may be asked to leave for the remainder of their workout. Please supervise your children before and after practice. Please also keep siblings in the designated viewing area. Thank you for your cooperation.

Thank you for your cooperation.
