Below are just a few of the rules and policies governing Etwall Eagles Swimming Club. Please read and adhere to them in the best interest of all members of the club. Below you can read or download all our policies.
- attend as many sessions as possible taking into account the guidelines from the coach.
- arrive in good time for sessions with all necessary equipment
- be attentive and co-operative with all the coaches instructions. Do not talk, interrupt or distract when the coach is talking. You must allow other swimmers to fully participate and enjoy the training session
- always go to the toilet before you start swimming so that you will not need it during the session. If you really have to go, go between sets, not halfway through one.
- bring a non-fizzy drink to training to keep you well hydrated and improve performance
- be well behaved in the changing rooms, respecting other swimmers and their property.
- be respectful and courteous to coaches, teachers, Club Officials, parents, other swimmers and in particular, any members of the public who may be using the facilities.
COACHES and TEACHERS:
The coach has absolute discretion on matters of discipline and swimmers proving to be disruptive may be asked to leave the pool and remain on poolside until the session ends. The coach also has the discretion to ban a disruptive swimmer from subsequent sessions. The coach should:
- start sessions on time
- respect the dignity and worth of all members and must treat everyone equally within the context of their activity within the Club
- be concerned primarily with the well-being, health and future of any individual swimmer. The relationship between Coach and swimmer should remain respectful and based on mutual trust.
- ensure they establish what is confidential information from the swimmer or parent/guardian before discussing it with any third party
- at all times conduct themselves with a high level of personal standards that not only reflect on the Club but also the sport
- confine themselves to practice in those areas of the sport in which they are deemed competent. They should refer problems beyond their knowledge to the appropriate agencies
- stay abreast of the latest techniques and to continue to seek to improve their technical and professional skills
- be aware of and adhere to the ASA Code of Ethics and ASA Child Safeguarding Policy and Procedures
PARENTS or GUARDIANS CONDUCT:
Parents and guardians should:
- think about becoming involved either as an event organiser, committee member or as an official.
- ensure, wherever practicable, that swimmers arrive in good time for their sessions. If late, an explanation to the Coach or Teacher will save the embarrassment of the swimmer
- if you do not wish to stay for the session, ensure before leaving that the coach is in attendance and the scheduled session is to take place
- remain on the premises if your swimmers are under the age of 8 years
- arrive in time to collect your children at the end of the session
- read the planned competition calendar which will, as far as possible, be published at the start of each year
- encourage the swimmers to wear Club attire if representing the Club
- ensure at least one adult accompanies the swimmer to galas. If this is not the swimmers parent or guardian, to ensure that another adult has been given specific responsibility for that swimmer, that that adult is aware of any medical requirements of the swimmer and that the team manager is aware of who has responsibility for that child
- confine discussions with their children to encouragement. The Coaches will advise on the ways to perform
- remain positive about their swimmers performances and be encouraged to discuss concerns with the Coach or Teacher when they are not instructing. If you wish to discuss your child with the coach you should make an appointment to do so at a time convenient to both parties
- be respectful and courteous to coaches, teachers, Club Officials and other members at all times
- appreciate the efforts put in by all swimmers during training and at Gala performances
- ensure the good behaviour of all attendees within their charge at venues used by the Club
- endeavour wherever possible to support and help or suggest ways to improve the running of the Club
