Eclipse Code of Conduct

Eclipse Performance Centre is committed to maintain the highest standards of ethics and behaviour.

We expect all our athletes and their parents to adhere to our Code of Conduct.

 

Code of Conduct – Juniors

 

All junior members must train and compete within the rules and respect officials and their coach and their decisions.

 

All juniors must respect other competitors.

 

Juniors must keep to agreed times for training and competitions or inform their coach if they will be late.

 

Be a good sport. Applaud your squad mates whether you are competing against them or not.

 

Participate for your own enjoyment and achievement – not just to please your parents or coach.

 

Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all your squad team mates and other members of the community regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

 

To conduct yourself in an appropriate manner so as to not bring any disrepute to yourself, your family, team mates, Triathlon WA or Eclipse Performance Centre & Eclipse Academy.

 

Cycling – Juniors

 

Juniors have a 3 strike policy and associated rules whilst cycling and this must be adhered to at all times.

 

  • Ride with at least 3 points of contact at any one time (No hands free riding in the group)

  • NO HEAD PHONES on any of Eclipse PC rides.

  • Cycling requires 100% concentration. If talking, chatting or other activities take your mind off the road, please stop. If you are distracted by that behaviour, ask your peer to stop. Those who continue to be distracted or distract others after being asked to stop will result in a strike

  • Be conscious of your riding space and others. This includes braking distance, over taking etc.

  • Obey & follow the road rules.

  • Be courteous & caring.

  • If an accident occurs, check in on the other rider involved. Check on them and support them

  • Listen to the coaches instructions at all times

 

Repeated failure to adhere to the above rules will result in the following:-

 

  • A first offence is a suspension of one week’s cycling sessions.

  • A second offence is a suspension of two week’s cycling sessions.

  • A third offence is a suspension of a month’s cycling sessions and a discussion with your parent will be had.

 

Code of Conduct – Parents

 

All concerns must be directed to the coach.

 

Should you have suggestions or comments, please direct them to the coach at the end of a session, not during the session.

 

Respect the rights, dignity and worth of those within the squad at all times, do not discriminate.

 

Publically accept official’s judgements and abide by their instructions, providing they do not contradict the spirit of this code.

 

Help your child to recognise good performance, not just results to avoid undue disappointment.

 

Never punish or belittle a junior for losing or making mistakes.

 

Set a good example by applauding all good performance, whether by your child or another.

 

Use correct and proper language at all times whilst in the company of juniors.

 

Remember that young people learn best by example.

 

Young people are involved in organised sport for their enjoyment and achievement – not yours, do not force your child to take part

 

 

Code of Conduct – Age Group Members

 

Respect the rights, dignity and worth of those within the squad at all times, do not discriminate.

 

Publically accept official’s judgements and abide by their instructions, providing they do not contradict the spirit of this code.

 

Never argue with an official. If you disagree, have your coach approach the official.

 

Verbal abuse of officials, sledging of other competitors or deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent is not acceptable.

 

Be wary of your language and use appropriate language in the presence of younger squad members.

 

Protect the integrity and reputation of the squad.
