As a parent/guardian, I understand the important growth and developmental support that my athlete's participation fosters that my support  is essential to provide the coaching staff with respect and the authority to coach the team. 

I understand the following behavior is encouraged and expected from me:

  • Parents shall exhibit good sportsmanship by conducting themselves in a manner that earns the respect of all swimmers, parents, officials, and coaches.
  • Open and respectful communication between parents, swimmers, and coaches that emphasizes goal-setting to meet the performance expectation of both the swimmer and the parents.
  • Involvement and commitment in supporting all team activities, including organizing and running meets, fundraising, swimmer social events, and banquets.  
  • The positive reinforcement of all swimmers.
  • Maintaining self-control and understanding the role of the parent is to parent, and not to coach or officiate unless that is your position at a meet.

I understand the following behaviors will not be tolerated:

  • Abusive and/or disrespectful language and actions towards coaches, swimmers, board members, other parents, or officials.  
  • Interference with or disruption of coaches on the deck.
  • Interference with the coach’s coaching of swimmers
