A Code of Conduct is important because it:
defines acceptable and unacceptable behaviour
maintains good standards of practice
forms a basis for challenging and improving practice
aims to support volunteers and members of the committee
aims to support parents and – most importantly – children, with emphasis on safety, dignity and respect.
NBSC requests that both children (members) and parents sign and retain a copy of the Code of Conduct at initial registration to the club, and every 12 months following.
Coaches, lifeguards and all other volunteers also sign a Code of Conduct which highlights expected behaviour, aiming to maintain child safety and enjoyment of the club.
Breach of Code of Conduct may result in formal disciplinary proceedings.
