To Promote Better Sportsmanship: 

  1. I will not force my child to participate in swimming. 
  2. I will remember that my child swims for his/her enjoyment not mine. 
  3. I will place the emotional and physical well being of my child ahead of a personal desire to win. 
  4. I will teach my child that doing one’s best is as important as winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of an event. 
  5. I will make my child feel like a winner every time by offering praise for competing fairly and trying hard. 
  6. I will never harass, ridicule, or yell at my child, his/her teammates, or opponents for any reason or for making mistakes or losing a competition. 
  7. I will remember that children learn best by example. I will applaud good performances by my child, his/her teammates, and their opponents. 
  8. I will never question or approach an official on any call. All questions are to be directed to the meet referee BY THE COACH
  9. I will respect and show appreciation for the many volunteers and paid staff who give their time to provide sport opportunities for my child, understanding that I have a responsibility to be a part of my child’s development. 
  10. I will get involved with my child’s team in a positive way. 
  11. I will refrain from drinking alcohol and from using tobacco products within the swimming venue.
