Parent Code of Conduct

As a Parent of the Fishers Area Swimming Tigers, I will abide by the following code of conduct:

  • Commit to the FAST Tiger Mission, the Tiger Vision, and demonstrate the Tiger values of: Team, Integrity, Grit, Excellence, Respect, and Sportsmanship.
  • Practice teamwork with all parents, swimmers, and coaches by supporting the values of cooperation, loyalty, commitment, and hard work.
  • Refrain from coaching or instructing the team or any simmer at training sessions or meets (from the stands or any other area) or interfering with coaches on the pool deck.
  • Demonstrate good sportsmanship by conducting myself in a manner that earns the respect of my child, other swimmers, parents, officials, and the coaches at meets and training sessions.
  • Enjoy involvement with the FAST team by supporting the swimmers, coaches and other parents with positive communications and actions.
  • Maintain self-control at all times and know my role.
    • Swimmers – swim,
    • Coaches - coach,
    • Officials – officiate,
    • Parents –parent.
  • Communicate with the coaching staff either before or after a training or meet session.
  • Hold questions or concerns regarding decisions made by meet officials or coaches during meets until the end of the meet session. Direct questions to a member of the FAST coaching staff only.
  • Express problems with any coach, swimmer, parent, or official within FAST immediately to your child’s coach, first. If that is unsatisfactory, bring it to the attention of the head coach. If you’re still not satisfied with the response, then submit in writing a formal complaint to the FAST executive board. All such issues must be documented, signed, and dated.
  • Refrain from using audio or visual recording devices, including a cell phone camera, in changing areas, restrooms, locker rooms, or on the pool deck.
  • Refrain from consuming alcohol, tobacco products, or illegal drugs at any FAST event.
  • Comply with the FAST social media and electronic communication policies, which can be found in the FAST Policy Handbook.

FAST will not tolerate sexual harassment or intolerance of any kind, including but not exclusive to harassing others because of race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, and/or sexual orientation/identification.
