Parent Code of Conduct

I hereby pledge to provide positive support, care and encouragement for my child participating in the Blue Mountain Junior Competition programs by following this Parents’ Code of Conduct. ·

 

  • I will inform coaching staff of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or others.

 

  • I will learn the rules of Ski Racing or Freestyle Competition and the policies of the governing competition organizations.

 

  • My guests and I will be positive role models for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all athletes, coaches, officials and spectators at any and all competition events and training sessions.

 

  • I will place the emotional and physical well-being of my child ahead of a personal desire to win.

 

  • I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health or well-being of the athletes.

 

  • I will teach my child to compete and train by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.

 

  • I will demand that my child treat other competitors, coaches, officials and spectators with respect, regardless of race, color, creed, sex or ability.

  • I will respect the officials and their authority during competitions and support coaches working with my child in order to encourage a positive and enjoyable experience for all. · I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs and alcohol.

 

  • I recognize that the relationship between an athlete and a coach can be altered dramatically by the presence of a parent. Therefore, during training I will do my best to “observe from afar”. · I will refrain from coaching my child or other competitors during training and events, unless I am asked to assist by a coach.
