What is the Code of Conduct for the camp?

 

  • RESPONSIBILITIES AND EXPECTATIONS

Participation in youth sports programs can have a lasting and meaningful effect on children’s lives. Therefore, it is the goal of Sports Monster Kids to provide the highest quality of athletic programs to ensure that a child’s experience with sport is a positive one. It takes the cooperation of everyone involved, including the participant, to make this happen. Therefore, Sports Monster Kids has established the following responsibilities for participants to adhere to:

  1. Players will listen to their coaches and be respectful of their elders.
  2. Players will take care of the facilities, equipment, and uniforms, which they are given.
  3. Players will make sure to eat the right foods and drink plenty of water before and after practices and games.
  4. Players will avoid all types of taunting, bullying, and belittling remarks to their teammates or opponents.
  5. Players will always show good sportsmanship win or lose.
  6. Players will refrain from horseplay and all other dangerous activities, in which they may become hurt.
  7. Players will participate for the love of the game and competition and not to win at all costs.

 

  • CORRECTIVE ACTION POLICY

A Child who fails to adhere to the Code of Conduct or does not live up to their responsibilities or expectations will be subject to disciplinary action. Sports Monster Kids does not want a problem child to spoil the experience of youth sports for the other children in the programs. Therefore, Sports Monster Kids have instituted a Corrective Action Policy to establish appropriate consequences for inappropriate behavior.

The Corrective Action Policy is a guide to assist coaches and Sports Monster Kids to run a quality program. The Corrective Action Policy is a 3-step system designed to forgive a mistake but to firmly address chronic misbehavior. For violations of the Code of Conduct or Expectations, these steps will be followed:

  1. Verbal Warning. Coach will discuss undesirable conduct with participants and parents and stress that this behavior will not be tolerated.
  2. Camp or Game Suspension. This time the participant and the parent(s)must attend a meeting with the Coach and the Program Director before the player is allowed to resume playing. The participant will be warned that the next offense will result in his/her expulsion from the league.
  3. Camp or League Expulsion. Coach will file a complaint to the program director who in turn will investigate and analyze the situation. The result of the program director investigation to the complaint will determine the corrective action for the participant. This action can consist of camp or game/games suspension. The participant on the 3rd offense will be expelled from the camp or league and no refund will be given.

 

The parent will then have to make a formal request to be reinstated into this league. The participant and parent(s) will then have to meet with the Program Director prior to the start of the season to determine if the participant can play within the guidelines of this program. These guidelines are not absolute in dealing with behavioral problems. Severe situations could merit harsher sanctions against participants.

 

What is the refund policy if my child is sick or injured and cannot attend a program?

 

A: If your child is sick or injured and a doctor's note is submitted before 72 hours from the start of the program, payment may be transferable to another child or a future program. There will be no credit or refund issued a child is sick and cannot attend the day (or multiple days) of a scheduled program.
