Respect in Sport Program
From our head coach....
The Kamloops Classic Swim Club is pleased to announce it has partnered with "The Respect Group Inc." to provide an educational tool that will further help to develop our commitment to having a safe and fun swimming environment for all our participants. Completion of this program is MANDATORY for at least one parent in each competitive program family. Swimmers will not be allowed to participate unless one parent in each family completes the “Respect in Sport Parent Program” within two weeks of registration.
What is this program?
The program consists of a unique, in-depth one hour online learning program geared to providing the parent with information on how to evaluate and understand:
Parental influence over a child
Coach and leader roles in sport.
Role of the parent and coach in ensuring a child’s enjoyment of a sport.
Protecting your child when outside of your immediate control.
The program also highlights 5 key "behavioural traps" frequently exhibited by parents (particularly in sport) and touches on a number of other subject areas including effective communication with coaches, officials and other parents.
