Be committed to your team and your club. Leaving your team half way through a year affects the whole team and reduces their chances at competitions.
Have consistent attendance at training sessions (no more than 20% of classes can be missed). If there is a problem with a date, reasonable notice is to be given to the Team Manager and the Coach.
Co-operate with your Coach and cadets.
Respect your Coach’s decision with regard to team selections and/or movement within a team.
Verbal abuse towards coaching staff, team managers and/or fellow team mates will not be tolerated.
Any concerns or problems that you may be experiencing should be brought to the attention of the team manager or coach during a break or after the completion of a class NOT during a class.
Work equally hard for yourself and your team. Your team’s performance will benefit and so will you.
Treat your fellow team mates as you would like to be treated.
Be prepared for class. This means wear a leotard and have your hair tied back.
Do not wear jewellery to class as these can catch on apparatus and cause injury.
Encourage your child to attend all classes.
Have your child be punctual to classes.
Respect the Coach’s decision regarding team placements and selection.
Be aware that Coaches may make changes to team selections and/or positions throughout the year. These are not fixed at the beginning of the year and are subject to change dependent upon your child’s attendance, performance and behaviour during the year.
Remember that children learn best by example. Applaud the efforts put in by all teams and members.
Remember to praise your child for what they can do well and not criticise for what they can’t.
Discuss concerns or problems with the team manager/club management as early as possible. It can’t be fixed if the club does not know it is broken.
Be committed to the team process, removing your child from teams does change the team dramatically and affects the clubs presentation at competitions. Give plenty of notice if a child needs to leave.
Show appreciation of the Team Managers, Costume Managers and officials. These people volunteer their time to the successful running of the club.
Verbal abuse towards coaching staff, team managers, volunteers and/ or fellow team mates will not be tolerated.
