CBS Skating Club's Parent Code of Conduct

The CBS Skating Club is committed to providing a supportive environment in which all individuals (athletes, coaches and families) are treated with respect.  As a result, parents/guardians are expected to adhere to some basic guidelines which are provided below:

  1. I will conduct myself at all times in a manner consistent with the values of The CBS Skating Club, which include fairness, integrity and respect.  This pertains to interaction with all athletes, other parents, officials, volunteers and coaches.
  2. I will refrain from comments or behaviours that are disrespectful, offensive, racist, abusive or sexist.
  3. I will not engage in destructive gossip regarding coaches, staff, parents, athletes, volunteers or officials.  Internet websites, including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and YouTube, on which people socialize and exchange information, shall not be used to post remarks or pictures that can be considered inflammatory, degrading, or in poor taste toward any other student athlete (CBS Skater or otherwise), coach or volunteer.
  4. If I have questions or concerns with respect to my child’s skating program, I should contact my child’s coach directly.  Any further concerns will be directed to the appropriate Technical Director.  If my concern is still unresolved, I will contact the club's President.
  5. I will not approach coaches or officials at the rink during practices.  Instead, I will arrange to meet with coaches before or after the sessions.
  6. I will ensure that my child arrives at practice on-time.
  7. I will encourage a healthy lifestyle including nutritious foods and adequate sleep.
  8. I will be supportive of my child and the team at all times, regardless of performance level.
  9. I understand that volunteer organizations, such as The CBS Skating Club, depend on the energy and goodwill of parents to fulfill numerous essential roles. When I have an issue with my parent representative, organizers or Board members, I will respect that these are all volunteers working on my child’s behalf.  If I feel the need to take issue with any member of our “team”, I will do so privately and directly with the people involved.  If resolution is not achieved, I will contact the club's President.
  10. I will ensure that my skater understands that internet websites, including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and YouTube, on which people socialize and exchange information, shall not be used to post remarks or pictures that can be considered  inflammatory, degrading, or in poor taste toward any other student athlete (CBS Skater or otherwise), coach or volunteer.
  11. I will support my skater and the CBS Skating Club by volunteering my time to assist in competitions, social events and fundraising activities.
  12. I will also have fun!

I understand that failure to comply with these Codes may result in disciplinary action as determined by the Board of Directors,
up to and including termination of membership.
