Code of Conduct: Parents & Carers

Code of conduct for parents/carers and adult members, volunteers and other supporters

As a parent/carer of a member of the Western Titans BMX Club, you are expected to abide by the following code.
I will:

  • inform the coach of any specific health requirements or medical conditions of my child in advance of the coaching session by completion of a club membership form or a parental consent form
  • advise the coach if my child has to leave early or is being collected by someone other than a parent/carer, giving details of the arrangement including who will be collecting my child, when and at what time
  • encourage my child to learn the rules and play within them
  • discourage unfair play and arguing with officials/volunteers/mentors
  • help my child to recognise good performance, not just results
  • set a good example by recognising fair play and applauding the good performances of all
  • never punish or abuse a child for losing or making mistakes
  • publicly accept officials’ judgements and teach children to do likewise
  • support my child’s involvement and help him/her to enjoy his/her sport
  • use correct and proper language at all times
  • remember that children participate in sport for their enjoyment, not mine
  • support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities
  • respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, disability, cultural background or religion
  • show appreciation and respect for coaches, officials and administrators.

Remember,  without them,  your child could not participate
