MEMORANDUM FOR RECORD                        29 SEPTEMBER 2020





The purpose of a code of conduct for parents/guardians is to establish consistent expectations for behavior by parents/guardian. As a parent/guardian, I understand the important growth and developmental support that my child’s participation fosters. I also understand that it is essential to provide the coaching staff with respect and the authority to coach the team. I agree with the following statements:


  • I will set the right example for our children by demonstrating sportsmanship and showing respect and common courtesy at all times to the team members, coaches, competitors, officials, parents and facilities. 
  • I will ensure that I will bring by athlete(s) to practice with their appropriate attire and gear as stated in the VST Parent Handbook. 
  • I will ensure that I will dress my athlete(s) appropriately for the weather both to and from all practices and meets.
  • Volunteering, observing practices will involve me, cheering at meets and talking with my child and their coach about their progress. 
  • I will refrain from coaching my child from the stands during practices or meets. 
  • I understand that criticizing, name-calling, use of abusive language or gestures directed toward coaches, officials, volunteers, and/or any participating swimmer will not be tolerated. 
  • I will respect the integrity of the officials. 
  • I will adhere and agree to the Locker Room Monitoring, Travel, Electronic Communications, Photography, and Bullying policies established by Vincennes Swim Team. 
  • I will direct my concerns first to the Vincennes Swim Team Head coach; then if not satisfied to the VST Board President. 

I understand the above expectations and that my failure to adhere to them may result in disciplinary action in line with VST policy, Indiana Swimming and USA Swimming Rules and Regulations.
