JUNIOR SAILING CODE OF CONDUCT
Youth Sailing Program Mission Statement: The mission of the Lauderdale Yacht Club Youth Sailing Program is to promote and teach the sport of sailing and seamanship to the youth of the Club and community. In addition to teaching sailing skills, the program emphasizes sportsmanship, life skills, teamwork, and an appreciation for fair competition between peers. Those participants dedicated to the program will have experiences that will benefit them for a lifetime. All the LYC instructors will share their knowledge and experience through a structured curriculum. As a nationally recognized leader in the sport of sailing, the LYC expects all program participants to conduct themselves appropriately at all times and to follow the following Code of Conduct: Respect For Others – I will respect the rights, dignity and self-worth of every individual. I will act honorably and will not lie, cheat or steal (or borrow without permission). I will encourage my fellow junior sailors to display the same qualities, and I will report those who do not respond appropriately to my encouragement to my coach/instructor. Professional Conduct – I will work proactively to achieve my full potential. I will trust that my coaches/instructors have my best long‐term interest at heart, and I will willingly comply with their direction. Personal Conduct – I will conduct myself professionally and accept responsibility for my actions. I will display high standards in my language, manner, punctuality, preparation and presentation. I will display self-control, courtesy, respect, honesty, dignity and professionalism. I will refrain from criticizing others– this includes my interactions with opponents, coaches, officials, administrators, parents and spectators. Good Sportsmanship/Corinthian Spirit – I will continually strive to demonstrate good sportsmanship, both on and off the water. I will place winning in the context of good sportsmanship and fair play. (Remember Paul Elvstrom’s quote: "You haven't won the race, if in winning the race you have lost the respect of your competitors.”) Possession and/or Use of Any Illegal Substance Including, But Not Limited To, Drugs and Alcohol –
Every program participant must understand that the ability to operate without mental or physical impairment underpins the safety and surety of our program, both on and off the water. I will refrain from smoking, drinking and/or illegal drug use.
Safety – Safety underpins everything we do. As such, it must be viewed as a philosophy, and NOT simply items on a checklist. Sailing and racing are inherently risky activities, and all coaches/instructors will actively manage risk when working with our youngest sailors and will help our older sailors understand appropriate risk management strategies to ensure that the training and/or competitive environment is safe. As a junior sailing program participant, I will ensure that my equipment is ready to support all planned activities. I will immediately inform my coach/instructor if I feel that I am not ready to participate fully in the planned activity (i.e., understand the task, am physically healthy enough, rested and skilled to ensure its successful outcome). I will look out for my fellow junior sailors.
I agree that I have read and understand the LYC Junior Program Mission Statement and I agree to abide by the Code of Conduct for Junior Sailors. I recognize that participation in the LYC Junior Program is a privilege, and not a right. I understand that if I do not abide by and promote the Code of Conduct I may be temporarily or permanently suspended from LYC’s Junior Program.
I am the parent/legal guardian for the foregoing child. My signature below confirms that I approve my child attending the sailing camp under the terms specified above.
