HTSC Parent Code of Conduct

  By registering my child/children for the HTSC 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 HTSC event.

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

  • I will remember that HTSC 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 HTSC when needed.

  • I understand and will support the HTSC 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’s 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.

  • I will not video record or photograph my child during practices, unless requested by a coach.

  • I will follow the Code of Conduct outlined in the club’s bylaws (Appendix A).
