CODE OF CONDUCT FOR GYMNASTS


 

As a club we are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of our gymnasts.  We believe it is important that gymnasts, coaches, administrators and parents associated with the club should, at all times, show respect and understanding for the safety and welfare of others.

 

Although we have an open door policy at the gym please be aware that gymnasts need to give the coach their full attention at all times when training.

 

  • Always wait outside the gym with your parent and stay with them until the club coach calls you in for your session.
  • Do not leave the gym at the end of your session until your parent or adult arrives to collect you.  If no-one arrives to collect you tell a coach immediately.
  • Let your coach know (you can send a text to 07384-463405) if you cannot attend your normal session.
  • Make sure you are dressed appropriately in named kit and bring a drink of water to each session – no jewellery should be worn, if you cannot take your earrings out you must get your parent to put some tape over them before you come to gym.
  • Ensure you let your coach know of any changes in personal details, e.g. new address, contact numbers or medical conditions as soon as they change.
  • Let your coach know if you are ill or injured when you come to the session.
  • Remember that coaches reserve the right to suspend a gymnast for dangerous or unacceptable behaviour.
  • Endeavour to establish good communications with other teammates, club officials and coaches.
  • We do not allow you to argue with coaches or officials.
  • Support others gymnasts, any concerns talk to your coach
  • Set good examples by recognising good sportsmanship and applauding the performance of all.
  • Aim to recognise good performance, not just results.
  • Learn the club rules and behave accordingly

CODE OF CONDUCT FOR PARENTS

 

As a club we are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of our gymnasts.  We believe it is important that gymnasts, coaches, administrators and parents associated with the club should, at all times, show respect and understanding for the safety and welfare of others.

 

Although we have an open door policy at the gym please be aware that gymnasts need to give the coach their full attention.

 

  • Never drop your child off in the car park – escort them into the gym and do not leave until the Club Coach is on the premises.
  • Always collect your child punctually at the end of the session, from the gym – not the car park.  We will not allow any child of primary school age to leave the gym unaccompanied by an authorised adult.
  • Advise the coach (you can send a text to 07384-463405) if your child cannot attend their normal session.
  • Similarly, advise your coach if you are delayed in collecting your child, or if someone other than the usual person will be collecting your child.
  • Ensure your child is dressed appropriately in named kit and bring a drink of water to each session.
  • Ensure you notify the club of any changes in personal details, e.g. new address, contact numbers or medical conditions as soon as they change.
  • Ensure any medical requirements are brought to the attention of your child’s coach, and medication if necessary is brought to the gym.
  • If you would like to speak to your child’s coach please arrange to do so at the beginning of the session.
  • Remember that coaches reserve the right to suspend a gymnast or for dangerous or unacceptable behaviour.
  • Endeavour to establish good communications with club officials and coaches.

  • Discourage challenging or arguing with coaches or officials.
  • Set good examples by recognising good sportsmanship and applauding the performance of all.
  • Help your child to recognise good performance, not just results.
  • Never force your child to participate in sport
  • Encourage your child to learn the club rules and behave accordingly
  • BG membership fees are due annually by 25th September as the gymnastic year commences on 1st October.  If unpaid your child will not be insured and therefore should not be training.
  • Keep up to date with your child’s fees – payments should be made by standing order on a monthly basis.
