Swimmers should always be on their best behavior at all time, practice, meets, or swim team functions. We are guests at away meets which means we should respect the pools rules, clean up our area and put things back where we got them. Destruction or damage to any facility we visit, or other swim team property can result in suspension or dismissal from the team & the swimmer or their parents will be held responsible for all payments.
Swim meets are an opportunity to represent our team and the Adams Farm organization, display improved skills and show your PRIDE in our team! All swimmers should follow rules set forth by the coaches & meet referee. Do not talk while others are talking (coaches, parents, team mates etc), and don’t talk back to coaches or meet officials. Everyone should refrain from speaking or acting negatively toward other swimmers, teams, coaches, or officials. Parents and swimmers should always be aware that they are representing Adams Farm and the CSA.
To have a successful program there must be understanding and collaboration amongst all parents, swimmers, and coaches. Regular and open communication is essential to steering clear of any misunderstanding or problems. The progress your child makes will be a direct reflection on this connection.
Questioning or criticizing a Coach, team member, or the team in front of a swimmer seriously damages the swimmers trust and confidence in the coach and the team. If your swimmer or you have a problem, address it with the coach directly. This is in order to steer clear of jumping to conclusions or discussing it with others. Please feel free to contact us at any time with questions or concerns. My coaching staff and I will do our best to address and answer them to the best of our ability, and will do what is in the best interest of the Adams Farm Swim Team.
Swimmers should always be on their best behavior at all times, including practice, swim meets, and swim team functions. Please don’t speak or act negative toward other swimmers, teams, coaches or parents. Team spirit can be demonstrated without being negative. You should demonstrate good sportsmanship at all times.
We always want each swimmer to improve, but remember we are a team and it’s important to support other swimmers and work together. Demonstrate good sportsmanship at all times. Show respect by following the rules set forth by coaches. Do not talk while others are talking and don’t talk back to coaches or officials. Please don’t speak or act negative toward other swimmers, teams, coaches or parents. Failure to adhere to these rules or any other directives from coaches can result in dismissal from practice, suspension from a meet or dismissal from the team.
“To be a team and united as one is a great achievement; yet to respect the right to be an individual may be even greater.” Michael Vesia
