Coaches Code of Conduct

I will commit to demonstrate and practice teamwork with all parents, swimmers and Coaches by supporting the Values of the Team

I will demonstrate good sportsmanship by conducting myself in a manner that earns the respect of the swimmers, other Coaches, parents, and officials

I will maintain self-control at all times

I recognize that the program exists as a learning experience, not as an end in itself

I understand that criticizing, name-calling, use of abusive language or gestures directed toward the Coaches, officials, and/or any participating swimmer will not be permitted or tolerated

I will enjoy involvement with the USA Team by supporting the swimmers with positive communication and actions

I will follow USA Swimming Rules and during competitions

I understand that volunteer efforts are an integral part of the success of the team and I will support and encourage the volunteers who help the program and actively support the teams fundraising and social activities

I recognize that as a Coach I have a responsibility as a mentor to youth and I will conduct myself in a way that will set suitable examples for the children.  At no time while on deck coaching will criticism of the officials, use of profanity, use of alcoholic beverages or the use of tobacco products be acceptable.   

I will follow and adhere to the ASCA Code of Conduct
