Parents:

One of the goals of the AquaFlyers is to provide young athletes a fun, challenging, and competitive swim team experience.

Our program would not be able to operate and remain successful without the dedicated support from all AquaFlyer parents. Everyone involved with the organization understands the commitment, sacrifice, time, and dedication that parents provide their swimmer -- and their swim team. And for that, we thank you for all that you do.

In this section, we thought it would be helpful to provide existing, new, and future AquaFlyer parents with additional information and insights regarding our program. Since we believe that good sportsmanship begins with the parents, our Parent Code of Conduct starts us off:

 

By registering my child/children for the Aquaflyers Swim Team, I agree to the following:

  • I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all swimmers, parents, volunteers, coaches and officials at every swim meet, practice or any other NFAF event.

  • I will place the emotional and physical well-being of my child ahead of the desire to win.

  • I will remember that NFAF is here for the kids first.

  • I will do my very best to make this sport fun for my child/children.

  • I will ask my child to treat other swimmers, parents, coaches, and officials with respect regardless of ability, race, sex or creed.

  • I promise to make my child’s/children’s experience with this sport a positive one by volunteering whatever time I can to NFAF when needed.

  • I understand and will support the NFAF Mission, Vision and Beliefs with my child.

  • I will provide my child with emotional support through the good and bad times with mature guidance.

  • I understand that all children are gifted but not in equal ways, therefore, I cannot compare child to child.

  • I will provide unconditional love to my child that is not based upon performance.

  • I will pay attention to see if my child is having fun, learning and improving – as opposed to just winning.

  • I will support the coaches’ philosophy and messages to my child.

  • I will not coach my child.

  • If I observe a practice, I will sit in the stands and not have contact with my child or coach until practice is complete.  The only exception is if the coach approaches me.
