Athlete Code of Conduct

Athlete Code of Conduct

 

 

The purpose of a code of conduct for athletes is to establish a consistent expectation for athletes’ behavior. All KA swimmers are expected to adhere to the following guidelines:

 

❏ 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 KA Administrator.
