Code of Conduct
New Forest Junior Athletic Club
CODE OF CONDUCT / EXPECTATIONS FOR ATHLETES AND PARENTS
New Forest Juniors Athletic Club is run entirely by volunteers, who week on week, turn out in order to provide a healthy, safe, fun environment for your children.
We expect all athletes and parents to treat all coaches, helpers, officials and fellow athletes with respect.
We expect athletes to always show good sportsmanship, to encourage fellow athletes and to never make derogatory comments regarding the athletic abilities of others.
We expect athletes to attend training regularly, to listen to their coaches, follow their instructions and give training sessions their full effort.
We expect athletes to arrive on time for training, with the correct equipment, footwear and clothing and for parents to collect their children on time at the end of the session.
Whilst athletics celebrates individual achievement and improvement, the core of the sport is in the team. We expect athletes to compete on behalf of the club. With Cross Country, Track and Field and Sportshall, there should be a competition opportunity to suit everyone. To help incentivise athletes, the Tim Wilding club medal and cross country club medal are awarded to children who show a commitment to competition at our annual club awards night.
Should we have any concerns regarding your child’s conduct or behaviour, we will raise this with you. Poor behaviour, if not rectified, may result in your child losing their place in the club.
