Disciplinary Policy

All swimmers are expected during practice to:

  • Listen and pay attention to the swim coach.
  • Raise their hand and ask questions rather than shout.
  • Show respect to all teammates at all times.
  • Not touch or excessively splash other swimmers.

Our swim practices are a safe space for swimmers to develop and grow. It is important to us that each swimmer has a positive environment to learn, swim, and challenge themselves without anybody limiting their experience and opportunity. We do not allow any physical or verbal abuse of any kind toward swimmers, coaches, or staff by other swimmers or parents. We have a firm no-bullying policy.

If a swimmer feels that a teammate is interfering with any of the above items, please have them speak with their coach or ask the coach to contact the parents and speak to them. All coaches will follow Gold Medal Swim School’s Disciplinary Action Plan for all swimmers who fail to follow the Gold Medal Swim Team rules.

Disciplinary Action Plan:

  • First Offense: Swimmer will be given one warning.
  • Second Offense: Swimmer will be asked to sit out of the pool for five minutes.
  • Third Offense: Parents will be called into the pool area and the student will be asked to leave practice. If a student is asked to leave practice, they will need to schedule a meeting with the General Manager or Owner of Gold Medal Swim School before the swimmer is allowed to return to practice.

To further ensure the safety of all swimmers and coaches, all parents are expected to promptly pick up their swimmers at the end of each practice and supervise them in the showers, changing area, lobby, and outside of the building. If a swimmer’s parent or guardian is not present at the time practice ends, their family account will be charged a $45.00 late fee.
